Events

WWIN organizes a variety of events each year.  Every September we celebrate our local water resources and the importance of water in our community with Whatcom Water Week.  We host free public speaker series events with the Whatcom Marine Resources Committee and special symposiums to dive deeper into water and natural resource topics important to our community. We also provide trainings, typically at no cost, that support our community's ability to provide quality outreach and communication on water and natural resource-related issues.

Flood Management on Whatcom Farmland

Wednesday November 16, 12:00-12:30pm  Via Zoom

Gavin Willis, with Whatcom Family Farmers, will share updates on work being done on local farmland to address flooding, improve riparian habitat, and promote healthy waterways for salmon. 

The presentation will incorporate perspectives from a range of projects and local entities, including the Ag Water Board, and will also include a sneak peek at the first of a 3-part video series highlighting changes in the way that watershed management is being tackled in Whatcom County.
