Reconveyance

Lake Whatcom Lands Transfer

In 2014 8,800 acres of forest lands around Lake Whatcom were transferred to Whatcom County from the Washington Department of Natural Resources through reconveyance. These lands are envisioned to provide passive recreation opportunities with hiking and biking trails connecting the various communities, neighborhoods and parks throughout the watershed. Under County ownership, the forests will be allowed to mature to an older growth environment benefiting the watershed and helping to stabilize the many steep slopes that surround the lake.
