Birchwood Neighborhood Association meetings are every other month on Tuesdays at Shuksan Middle School cafeteria from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.
2012-13 Meeting schedule: September 18th, November 27th, January 22nd, March 26th, and May 28nd.
The Birchwood Neighborhood is located in the north-western quadrant of Bellingham, Washington. Bellingham was founded in 1853 and presently has a population of 71,289 people. Outside magazine calls Bellingham one of its 10 “Dream Towns,” noting its close access to shorelines, rivers, the San Juan Islands and the Cascade Mountains. We like to think of the Birchwood Neighborhood as being one of the best in town to live in - The neighborhood is characterized by older, well-kept homes built on large lots (20,000 square feet or greater). The large lots, mature landscaping, and narrow streets lend a rural atmosphere to the neighborhood, creating a welcoming feel for visitors and residents.
Other significant features of the neighborhood include the Bellingham Golf and Country Club, the Squalicum Creek greenbelt, Bellingham Technical College, and Shuksan Middle School. Little Squalicum Park, located just outside the neighborhood boundary, provides salt water frontage on Bellingham Bay. The Bay to Baker Trail and greenway connects Little Squalicum, Birchwood and Squalicum Creek Parks.
