Bellingham Coin Easter Egg Hunt - April 8

This year’s annual Easter Egg Hunt presented by R.B. Wick is April 8th! Easter Eggs will be hidden in public parks, public access areas and all over Whatcom County. More details coming soon.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
