Community Outreach

The Port of Bellingham is located in Whatcom County. Port officials and staff welcome opportunities to:
  • Involve advisory groups
  • Listen to community ideas and comments
  • Meet with community members
  • Presentations to clubs, businesses, nonprofits and service organizations
  • Provide tours
The port is an independent, countywide local government charged with creating economic development, operating terminals and marinas, and much more. We believe in caring for our environment both in how we manage our operations and in how we coordinate more than a dozen major environmental cleanups of historic contamination on our waterfronts.
