Press Release
Chuckanut Community Forest Park District
May 30, 2017

We are pleased to announce that the “Baseline Documentation Report” for the Chuckanut Community Forest has been completed, approved, signed, and posted here.

We would like to thank Ann Eissinger of Common Futures LLC especially, and Chris Behee, Senior GIS Analyst of the City of Bellingham, Planning and Community Development Department, for creating a visually stunning and factually inclusive document of our beloved Chuckanut Forest. Many others contributed and we thank all who helped.

We encourage everyone to read and enjoy, and use as a reference, the Baseline Study. You will be glad you did, and maybe you’ll be inspired to take a walk in the woods with a new understanding of the value of our natural treasure.

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.
