Revitalizing and Preserving Whatcom County Marine Resources for Future Generations

The Whatcom County Marine Resources Committee (MRC) was established by the County Council in 1999 to protect and enhance the local marine environment and contribute to the protection of the marine environment of the Northwest Straits.  The Whatcom MRC is one of seven MRCs established in the Northwest Straits region as part of the federal Northwest Straits Marine Conservation Initiative.

MRC meetings are held the first Thursday of the month from 6 to 8 pm at Whatcom County Civic Center, 322 N. Commercial Street, Bellingham, Garden Level Conference Room.  Meetings are open to the public.
