Bellingham / Whatcom County is a culture of outdoor adventure and sweeping scenery from the Salish Sea to Mt. Baker and North Cascades National Park. The Whatcom County Regional Wayfinding Program is a collaborative effort between the communities of Bellingham, Birch Bay, Blain, Ferndale, Lummi Island, Lynden, Mt. Baker, Point Roberts and Sumas.
Located on Bellingham Bay with Mount Baker as its backdrop, Bellingham is the last major city before the Washington coastline meets the Canadian border, giving a visitor a true “Sea to Ski” experience. The modular design captures this spirit with custom designed wayfinding icons, with bright accent colors representing each region within the county. Gateways will mark the entry to Whatcom County, incorporating icons of the regional towns and districts. Within each community, kiosks will guide visitors throughout the Districts and Regions, promoting outdoor activity and pedestrian connectivity.
