Blanchard State Park is a staple of outdoor recreation in Bellingham, WA (Whatcom County), known for it's hiking of Oyster Dome, horse back riding and mountain biking trails. The park is also the only place in Washington state where the Cascade Mountains meet the Salish Sea and is key for habitat connectivity. Locals and tourists from all over the world come to see the spectacular views from Osyter Dome and would also be severely missing out if all the trees around were reduced to stumps. Department of Natural Resources is currently lacking the funds of $7.7 million that it needs in order to protect a 1,600 acre plot of land within the Blanchard State Park which contains Osyter Dome, two backyard ponds, several trails and back country campsites. With the deadline approaching, the DNR is needing that $7.7 million in order to complete the Blanchard Forest Strategy agreement. DNR needs the funds in order to purchase replacement lands or else they will have to log in that special area. We (locals and visitors from around the world) need Washington State Legislation  to provide the $7.7 million funding in the 2016 Supplemental Capital Budget Bill in order to preserve such a special part of nature.
