Chuckanut Mountain Park

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

Whatcom County added 140 acres of wildlife habitat on Chuckanut Mountain, south of Bellingham. Project is part of a joint private/public partnership with State Parks, Department of Natural Resources, Whatcom County, City of Bellingham, and Trillium Corporation and enhances other county holdings as well as Larrabee State Park’s facilities.
