There’s a local park built over 110 years ago that once featured the tallest natural flag pole in the U.S. That flag pole, formed by a limbed red cedar tree and dedicated on Flag Day, June 14, 1907, toppled in a fierce windstorm 55 years ago, but the park still remains intact thanks to local stewards.
Today, Fairhaven Park consists of 16 acres of multi purpose fields, basketball and tennis courts, playgrounds, splash park and over 59 varieties of trees in an area deemed the “Chuckanut Community Forest.”
And that’s where Trayvax comes in. The Chuckanut Community Forest features a series of trails and hidden ponds. Unfortunately, some of these trails have been constructed in fragile wetlands, so an organization called Recreation Northwest decided to step up and do something about it by focusing on a trail relocation project. The new trail will be 400 feet long including an elevated wetland boardwalk crossing to limit impact on this fragile habitat and improve public access.
We sponsored a work party in conjunction with Recreation Northwest a few weeks back to get cracking on this project. Mark brought his new Onewheel to help deliver mulch. Talk about innovation!
I brought the whole family out. The boys decided to dress up as ninjas. I got a solid 45 minutes of work out of those guys before they started karate chopping each other. Not bad for those dudes.
Kevin and Ray timed the blackberry removal perfectly. The berries were ripe and ready hence the smiles. If you’re going to be removing blackberries, you should get to enjoy some of the sweet goodness at the very least.
We even brought our company mascot Zedd along. He did a great job of “supervising.”
All in all, we had a great time sponsoring this work party. With over a dozen volunteers present, we were able to make an impact and help support stewardship work in Fairhaven Park.

Returning to our natural roots as humans comes with a serene feeling only Mother Nature can provide. Getting away from it all. Last week we did just that with Chad Derosa from Living The Van Life. Naturally we escaped to Pacific Northwest’s beautiful North Cascade mountains, a short drive from the Trayvax warehouse in Bellingham.
Cooking a meal outside can be quick and easy. Whether it is the backyard campout, one night camping escape to fully living off the grid we all have something to gain from sitting around hot coals cooking food as our ancestors did.
