Tennant Lake boardwalk still closed

Tennant Lake’s boardwalk, which normally opens in late January after a closure during duck season, remains closed for several weeks as the state Department of Fish and Wildlife repairs part of the wooden walkway through marshland near the Nooksack River.

A Whatcom County parks official said the area is soggy and the boardwalk could be underwater even when repairs are finished by mid-February. The fragrance garden and 50-foot viewing tower remain open.
