Museum volunteer Dale Petersen organized and led a group of Bellingham, Washington area volunteers to plan and produce a large display illustrating the cultural, physical and historical points of interest for the Mt. Baker Ranger District in northwestern Washington State.
The display design includes colorful photographs and information on area history, the Mt. Baker Volcano, area geology and recreational opportunities. Partners in the project are Mt. Baker Ranger District, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Mt. Baker Ski Area, Whatcom Event and the Discover Your Northwest Interpretive Association.
The display is currently on view at the Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism Office. The office, at I-5 exit 253, is open daily from 9 to 5. It will continue to appear at various public venues in 2013 including the Heather Meadows Visitor Center near the eastern end of the Mount Baker Scenic Byway.
