Squalicum Boathouse 2600 N Harbor Loop Dr, Bellingham
Due to significant scheduling constraints we are using this facility this term for one course (Exploration of Mars). This is a single building at Zuanich Park with plenty of free parking near the building. Unfortunately, there is no direct WTA bus route that services this location. The nearest bus stop is on Eldridge Ave and requires an approximate 1.5 mile walk to the park.
