Chums of Terrell Creek

Promoting good stewardship and clean water since 2003


The Chums are excited to work with the Whatcom Conservation District and Nooksack Salmon Enhancement to clean up the Terrell Creek watershed! We have the resources to help individual landowners become watershed stewards.

See our Success Stories page for a summary of what we have already accomplished!!

The Chums of Terrell Creek (Chums) were organized in 2003 to promote salmon recovery in the Terrell Creek watershed. In response to community concerns about safe shellfish harvesting and clean recreational water we have expanded our efforts to include water quality in Terrell Creek and Birch Bay. Clean water is not just an environmental concern, it’s also a health concern for everyone using water for recreation.
