The Northwest Straits Chapter's programs include Blue Water Task Force (water testing), a Native Garden Project, an Intertidal Beach Mapping Program, and their Snowrider Project. They are also currently supporting a proposed plastic bag ban in Bellingham, WA

In 2014, the Northwest Straits chapter was back at it again with their well regarded water quality project at Larabee State Park. Several summer interns took part in water quality testing and guiding park visitors on nature walks throughout this amazing Washington gem. Expanding on their work, the chapter received funding and worked with other groups on what is now the Whirlwind Beach Stewardship Project which seeks to establish a healthier beach by installing garbage cans and recycling, not to mention better access and parking at this popular kite-boarding location. Additionally, the Western WA club has grown substantially and received some press for their work on local beach cleanups.
