Awesome #openmat today with lots of visitors! People walking by in #dtbham stop in and watch #bjj sometimes — it’s amazing to introduce people in #downtownbellingham to #brazilianjiujitsu. It’s like yoga but somewhat involuntary. 😹 Thanks to all the guests who come by for our weekly free open mat! Great way to start the weekend. #bellinghambjj #bellinghamjiujitsu #whatcomcounty #cityofsubduedexcitement #bellingham #bellinghamwa

Whatcom Womxn! If you’ve noticed that your bones are buzzing and your heart is singing the song of dandelions and trilliums, might it be because the moon is full and your soul is asking you to celebrate? What better way to honor your connection with the terrestrial and lunar cycles than to spend the evening exploring with fellow womxn and howling at the moon!
Come out with Wild Whatcom tomorrow evening for Ladies Night Out in honor of the Moon of the Flowers. This program will run from 7:30-9:30PM and suggested donation is $12 a person.

Naturalist Knowledge 101: Banana Slugs!

These slimy friends are native to the Pacific Northwest and are an integral part of our native ecosystem. This is why we don’t see these sluggos in your garden, because they live in the woods and wild.
Banana Slugs prefer the rich understory of second and old growth forests. Banana Slugs can be found underfoot on rainy forest days, munching away on decomposing vegetation.
If you come across this slug, feel free to say hi and introduce yourself. However! Don’t lick this new friend, because it for sure eats poop.

If you are looking for an immersive nature experience for your wild child this summer, sign up for a Wild Whatcom camp!
We have openings in our boys Foothills Camp (1st/2nd) and our boys, girls, and all-gender Chuckanut Wilds Camps (3rd-4th). Our Foothills Camp encompasses three days at three different Whatcom County locations. This is a great experience for youngsters wanting to become more confident in the outdoors. The Chuckanut Wilds camp is geared toward supporting children in becoming independent campers and culminates in an overnight at Larrabee State

Whatcom Wednesday: This land that we call home is imbued with many natural splendors. From the North Cascades to the Salish Sea, we are privileged to live upon a land that is filled with life and history. One of the most beautiful places that Wild Whatcom visits during our programming is Lake Whatcom Park.
This beautiful system of trails is accessible for families with young kiddos and avid hikers alike. Take the Hertz Trail, old railroad grade, for a quiet stroll by the lake’s shore. However, if you prefer elevated views and working up a sweat, try the Chanterelle trail. This doozy is a 4.8 miles round trip with 1000 ft in elevation gain. Make sure to pack extra snacks and H2O for that one!

Taught three classes, two🥋 and one #nogi. Rolled eight rounds of #jiujitsusparring with eight different righteous partners. Watched everybody work the #bjjfundamentals while #rolling, and a bunch of folks caught #tripodsweeps and #butterflyguard sweeps. Time to play Ice Cube’s “Today Was a Good Day” and get back at tomorrow. Gi class at 11:30, #nogijiujitsu 6-8:30. #bellinghambjj #bellinghamwa #downtownbellingham #dtbham #cityofsubduedexcitement #whatcomcounty #brazilianjiujitsu #graciejiujitsu

After what seemed like a long time spent on the East Coast, this past weekend didn’t involve any plans, reservations, swift movement, or effort to hit scenic spots. It did involve perfect weather and a lot of stops on short, meandering bike rides around town. Ready for the summer!

Feels like home.🌊

Wild Church invites you to Attune Yourself to Living Things this morning!
Join us, Saturday, May 11th at 10am, for our monthly outdoor gathering that acknowledges God’s presence in all things.

The theme of reSURGE will echo through the fir trees, the rainfall, the owl’s call, the deer’s stare, the rivers’ rise, calling to us to listen and reflect on the reality of Christ, present in all things.
WildChurch is an opportunity for us to develop spiritual practices that draw us deeper into relationship with the sacred in our own untamed hearts, in our watershed and with our undomesticated God.

Location: Meet at the parking lot for the N. Chuckanut trailhead on Chuckanut Drive. Bring whatever you need to make your experience worthwhile in the woods (journal, water bottle, small chair, pens, blanket). We will hike together afterwards, if you would like to bring a lunch!
