  • With partial funding from the Norcliffe Foundation, we are building a meeting, training and educational space for 20-50 people.
  • The Community Meeting Room will serve as a hub in Whatcom County to drive collaborative efforts among all our partners involved in salmon recovery.
  • The meeting room will also be available for use by other supporting businesses and organizations.
  • A portion of the building is being constructed for program needs and will include a washer and dryer to clean our quiver of gloves, safely calibrate water quality equipment and store our educational supplies. 

All Done! We completed the project in early June when we added the pump to the pond so that water would circulate. Volunteers are now watering the young native plants in the garden!

Construct a Demonstration Garden for Native Plant Landscaping

  • NSEA has long needed a location to teach landowners and students how to landscape with native plants, particularly near a stream.
  • We are dedicating about a ¼ of an acre to this demonstration project.
  • Partial funding for the demo garden was secured from Washington’s Native Plant Society in June, 2015.
  • Former NSEA Executive Director Wendy Scherrer created the project concept, produced the initial design and provided early leadership to get the project underway.  

COMPLETE AN EQUIPMENT SHOP

All Done! We started the construction of the Equipment Shop in March of 2016 and completed it in early June.

  • An 2,000 square foot shop will allow NSEA to safely and securely store and maintain all of its restoration equipment, including hand tools, machinery and tractors.
  • This will reduce crew prep time and support their field work restoring salmon habitat.
  • One large bay door and two smaller doors will allow us to park our machinery and a vehicle under cover while not being used extending the life and protecting our assets from theft. 
  • The building will be built to maximize solar gain so that NSEA will one day be able to install solar energy panels.
