Many hands make light work...


Help out at one of our activities.  Learn how to be a docent at the Interpretive Center.

Work with school groups who visit Tennant Lake on Field trips.  Serve on one of our planning committees.

Past Activities:

Swan Watch
The Friends have in the past worked with local birding experts to get up early to view the sunrise with migrating swans, rising from Tennant Lake.

Hike the Dike
The Nooksack River borders both parks and runs to Bellingham Bay. In summer, the Friends have sponsored a 6 mile nature hike along the river banks.

Historical Programs
Evening Programs give local historians an opportunity to share their knowledge and research about the fascinating story of the parks and the people who have helped build Whatcom County.

Interpretive Site Docents
Volunteers assist park visitors and school groups with tours of the Interpretive Center Museum, the Wetland boardwalk, and the Fragrance Garden.

The Friends rally community and legislative support to ensure continued funding for the parks and programs.
