View our Past Projects

In collaboration with the City of Bellingham and 52 volunteers, we were able to plant 133 shrubs and 10 trees, removed yards of invasive species and spread a ton of mulch.

Collaborating with local partners, LEAD removed lots of invasive species, found some cassette tapes, and planted new native species to restore the area.

In collaboration with Whatcom Land Trust LEAD removed non-native Himalayan Blackberries and English Holly to restore wildlife habitat.
