Jeanne —

Please join us this Saturday in Ferndale, and stand right above the Trans Mountain/Puget Sound Pipeline where it crosses under the Nooksack River, while hearing experts speak about the importance of the Nooksack to salmon and people, and the risks of the 65 year-old tar sands crude pipeline (including the fact that Emergency Response Plan makes it clear that there is no way to safely contain or clean up a tar sands spill in water). You’ll also learn how to prepare comments on the 5-year updates to the emergency oil spill contingency response plan (review ends August 25th at 5pm!).

What: Educational event
When: this Saturday, 8/18 1-3 pm
Where: Hovander Homestead Park, 5299 Nielsen Ave, Ferndale, WA 98248

Can’t make it? Be sure to comment anyway!

The Facebook event page has more information. You can sign up for a self-organizing carpool here!

We hope to see you there!

PS Once you’re inside the park: turn onto Nielsen Ave. from Hovander Rd., go right on River Lea Rd., go left near the end, into the parking lot, and pass the red barn on the path to the river bank. A yellow post marks where the pipeline is at the beach. Hovander Park Map
