Travel by river was the sole viable method at the time for settlers, and early pioneers were thwarted in their efforts to move north at the lower Nooksack River by a series of logjams that blocked passage. And you always need the proper gear for safety and success. This point of entry means you walk more of the trail and experience plenty of switchbacks up Blanchard Mountain. Continue on the path and follow signs up the mountain to Oyster Dome. September 6th Sunday at 2pm Worm Bins and Home Composting Make a worm bin, turn steaming compost piles, become a soil builder.

Many of the new settlers were out-of-work coal miners and sawmill hands seeking a new way of providing for their families, and the prospect of farming and dairying up north attracted them in droves. But the drive to the Chuckanut trailhead provides equally beautiful views as the hike itself.

These needs were analyzed by conducting a series of interviews with key community members who were involved with the site, are potential stakeholders to the site, or have a background with similar environmental education programs. The day hike of over six miles round-trip has an esti- mated elevation gain of 1, feet, with the peak being at 2, feet. The park also features the Olde Fashioned Christmas celebration during the first week in December, when the cabins are decorated to replicate how early pioneers celebrated the holiday.
