Heritage Flight Museum

Our aircraft may be ‘vintage’ but given their rare and precious status, rest assured that they are meticulously maintained and carefully flown. Our pilots have thousands of flight hours between them and more experience in these aircraft than most. We love our aircraft, the history that they represent, and we relish the opportunity to share our passion with our visitors.

Raptor ID & Behavior Class

This class will fill up quickly. Register now to guarantee your spot. Cost of class is $175. Class meets at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship. Field trip location will be announced at class, as will a choice of days.

Whatcom and Skagit counties are home to many loyal Bud Anderson followers. They will travel great distances to attend his classes, and with good reason. Blending wonderful, delightful and edge of your seat stories gleaned from years of up close and personal experience with unarguably the world’s fiercest birds, an approachable teaching style that draws in the beginner birder and satisfies the seasoned, topped with a poet’s sensibilities and your favorite uncle’s wry and witty delivery, Bud Anderson does not disappoint.

His Western Washington Raptor Identification and Behavior class is attended by people who return again and again, year after year. Whatcom Land Trust is proud to sponsor this class. And we would be remiss if we didn’t let you know that it fills up quickly.

If you are wondering about the photo of Bud standing on the tarmac with a raptor andan airplane, you may be happy and pleased to know that Bud launched a visionary program at Sea-Tac Airport. The program has saved the lives of hundreds of raptors and has gained international recognition.

For more information about the Sea-Tac Airport project and Bud Anderson’s work with raptors, visit Falcon Research Group online atwww.frg.org

From left, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., with Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., and Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., meet on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, after their bet on last Sunday's NFL Super Bowl football game between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. Seattle won and the senators from Washington will receive Colorado-raised bison from Tony’s market, peaches from Palisade, Colo., and a gift certificate to Elway's, a Colorado-based steakhouse and other Colorado produced items.

Elected officials, businesses, museums; it seems like almost everyone wants to wager on the Super Bowl.

B’ham Hawk Fans to create giant lighted human 12

Lights on a downtown Seattle building form a giant figure "12" in honor of Seattle Seahawks' fans and the team's success Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, in Seattle. The Russell Investments Center, at 1301 Second Ave., coordinated with building tenants to strategically close window blinds to light the number twelve, honoring the team's "12th Man," on the west-facing side of the 42-story building on Wednesday and will do so again on Friday. The Seahawks play the New Orleans Saints Saturday in an NFC divisional playoff game.

The Seattle Seahawks play in the super bowl Sunday… but Whatcom county 12’s are already showing their support.
