BEtreat practice & research
August 25 - August 28
I'm ready to commit
Bellingham is a university town of 90,000 located on the beautiful Salish Sea, nearby the San Juan Islands and peaks of the Cascades. Vancouver, British Columbia is 60 miles to the north, and Seattle is 90 miles south. Downtown Bellingham is walkable and full of accessible meeting spaces, and we’ll use a variety of them during the BeTreat. A likely primary location will be the conference room in WWU City Center in the Herald Building (1155 N. State St). We will finalize the meeting locations once the group size is known. We will spend one evening having a homemade pizza party in Travis’s backyard, using his family’s earth oven.
The Bellingham International Airport (BLI) is small but convenient. It is served by Alaska Airline, Allegiant Air, and San Juan Air.
Visitors to Bellingham commonly fly into the Seattle/Tacoma Airport (SEA), a major airport 90 miles to the south, and then use the Bellair Shuttle to get to Bellingham.
Other options include Paine Field (PAE) in Everett, WA or Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in British Columbia.
Travis says he would be happy to do an AirBnb site visit for any of the participants, if desired.
Things to do around the region:
