In October 2018, Western Washington University students designed trail networks for Chuckanut Community Forest (CCF) as an assignment for a conservation course. Reports and designs by five students are available here.

Our Mission: The mission of the Chuckanut Community Forest Park District is to ensure the entirety of the property is protected in public ownership in perpetuity, with respect for its ecological, recreational, and educational functions and to serve as a fiscal mechanism through which the District, via a tax levy, will repay the City of Bellingham for the Greenways Endowment Fund loan.
