Conservation on the bay
Our start came in 1989 as Greater Ecosystem Alliance in Bellingham, Washington. Later the name changed to Northwest Ecosystem Alliance, and in 2004 we took the name Conservation Northwest. Today we have eight of our staff here in offices facing Bellingham Bay.
Westward rises Lummi Island and the San Juans, and to the east, the North Cascades and the volcanic cone of Mount Baker. To the north, one glimpses the Fraser River valley and coastal mountains of British Columbia, Canada, and to the south, the Chuckanuts Mountains and bald eagle haven of the Skagit River valley.
We are directly in line sight between the Coast and North Cascades.
Our issues near Bellingham are protecting Blanchard Mountain, state Department of Natural Resources forest edging down to the Straits of Georgia, and the only place where the Cascades meets the sea, and protecting the Lake Whatcom watershed, where we recently helped win a new county park, protecting what is now the largest local park in Washington.
