Community Climate Action Chalk Art Contest

September 21, 2020 September 27, 2020

The Port of Bellingham and City of Bellingham are based along the waters of Bellingham Bay. We are directly affected by sea level rise and other effects of climate change. This event invites participation from everyone in the community to celebrate our water heritage.

During ALL IN for Climate Action Week, we invite community members to share their artistic chops while promoting climate action awareness. We will be designating areas at least 6 feet apart. Register for a piece of concrete canvas at a park near you and share your work with lromo@cob.org to be entered in a contest. Your project can be up to 5′ by 5′. Categories include: Global Climate, National Climate, Local Climate. We encourage you to find ways to incorporate water and ocean themes into your drawing. Please BYOC (Bring Your Own Chalk). Art may be completed any time parks are open between September 21-27.

Register for your free piece of concrete canvas here.

Make sure to let us know you are joining us for the event on Facebook, too!

All participants must follow COVID-19 guidelines from the Whatcom County Health Department. Be a good example to our community by maintaining at least six feet of distance from other park users and wearing a cloth face covering. Please be kind and courteous; only use your assigned section and make room for others to pass.
