Dust off your bike and join us for a fun ten mile ride to view rain gardens and stormwater treatment facilities in Bellingham. This tour will primarily showcase rain gardens, but we’ll also visit some of the brand new super cool stormwater facilities installed by the City of Bellingham. We’ll discuss pollution prevention and offer homeowners and business owners an opportunity to consider new ways to help prevent stormwater pollution on their property.
Meet us at Bellingham Technical College (BTC), at 3028 Lindberg Avenue, at 10:00 a.m. We will gather on the south side of Building G, which is next to the Campus Center. After viewing rain gardens at BTC, we will visit rain gardens around town, as well as stormwater facilities installed at private homes at businesses, and in public right-of-ways. We’ll travel on bike paths and side roads whenever possible, at a slow to moderate speed. The tour will end at Western Washington University by 1:00. Participants should be familiar with safe bicycling techniques. Children under 8 years old must be on their parent’s bike (trailer, seat, or trail-a-bike). The route will be less than 10 miles in length. The tour is free, but registration is required. For more information or to register, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (360) 733 8307.
