POST POINT HERONS UPDATE:
IT’S OFFICIAL! As of 5/31/22, Whatcom Land Trust & the City of Bellingham closed on the purchase of property that overlooks the Post Point Heron Colony! Whatcom Land Trust will manage a conservation easement that will protect the property from development for as long as the herons choose to live there. We couldn’t have done it without your support and generous donations! A special thank you to Louis Nicksic for this incredible video of our Post Point heron!
Donating stock can be one of the most tax-efficient ways to give. We’ve partnered with Overflow to make donating stock online quick, easy, and secure.
