State grants to fund California Creek project

August 16, 2019

The Northern Light reports that the Blaine-Birch Bay Parks and Recreation District No. 2 has received two grants—a WWRP grant and an ALEA grant—to create a public access site on California Creek. The creek is important wildlife habitat for salmon, shellfish, waterfowl, and shorebirds.


“BBBPRD2 will be collaborating with the Whatcom Land Trust on the project. According to Ted Morris of the Whatcom Land Trust, the project aims to create a small park in the area, which will include a kayak launch, a restroom, a 20-car parking lot and a half-mile trail. The project would likely be completed in 2021, with construction slated to begin in August or September next year.”
