Bellingham is a small city located on Puget Sound that is the county seat of Whatcom County. It has an active port, which supports fishing, shipping and other industry. The citizens of Bellingham have a strong interest in their parks and green spaces, voting three times to tax themselves to purchase land for this purpose. East of Bellingham are the North Cascades Mountains, including volcanic Mt. Baker. Species of concern include chinook and coho salmon, western pond turtles and marbled murrelets.
