Celebration and Ceremony
in the North Cascade Foothills
Wandering Waters offers stunning mountain views, seclusion, and the distant sound of the North Fork
Nooksack flowing towards the Salish Sea. The venue sits at the base of a forested slope of tall cedar
and fir trees. The landscape to the south is defined by the broad shoulders of Slide Mountain while
Church and Bald Mountains tower in the east. Maple Creek, a tributary to the Nooksack, slowly meanders
through the property, and is home to abundant wildlife including all five species of Pacific salmon.
With the spirit of Stewardship, Wandering Waters began over twenty years ago inspired by a vision to
create an outdoor gathering space while preserving and enhancing the habitat for the wildlife whose
space we share and whose existence we cherish. The rustic-styled structures are crafted from trees grown
and hewn on the site and are thoughtfully arranged to enhance the connections between humans and nature.
The proximity of Wandering Waters to the North Cascades is appealing to those with a sense of adventure,
an appreciation of nature, conservation and of a night sky free of ambient light.
There are several ceremony sites and a gathering space featuring a timber framed party pavilion with a
capacity to shelter ninety guests, a food service kitchen and bar, a covered stage, a hook up for food
trucks, and more.
