Wild Whatcom is a non-profit organization founded by experienced outdoor educators with the shared vision of providing innovative experiential education in Whatcom County, Washington. Exploring, serving, and connecting with nature, self, and others are the foundation of all their offerings.
The purpose of the Whatcom County Youth Fair is to provide an educational two-day fair for area youth ages 6-18 to prepare them for other fair competition. Fair events include animal projects, a rodeo, photography, clowning, woolcrafts, entrepreneurship, public speaking, wildlife habitat, computer wizards, performing arts, amateur radio, and country crafts.
Girls on the Run encourages positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age. Running is incorporated throughout the curriculum to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health.
