BIKE RIDE – Legacy of  “the City of Smokestacks” and the Anacortes Shoreline Makeover

Anacortes history has many stories to tell – some left a legacy that today require attention to restore our shoreline.  The working waterfront of Anacortes, once the hub of more than a dozen wood mills today continues to support a thriving shipbuilding and boating industry.  Join Trail Tales docents for an interpretive bike ride to learn more about how these industries are tied to the Anacortes Baywide Cleanup project that is restoring the Fidalgo Island shoreline.  Pump up those tires and bring your bike down to the Anacortes Depot and for an interpretive ride on level terrain at a leisurely pace.  We’ll stop at sites along Guemes Channel, Cap Sante Basin and the Tommy Thompson Trail to share stories of our working waterfront and today’s efforts to restore important
shoreline habitat that support our commercial seafood and recreation businesses

Trail Tales interpretive events, led by trained volunteers, are free and open to the public with no registration required.

All are invited to join in!
