A group opposed to coal exports off the West Coast plans to host “Coal Trains: A Coming Coal Export Workshop” on Tuesday at Totem Middle School in Marysville.
The coalition called Power Past Coal includes groups such as the Sierra Club and Climate Solutions. The event is planned from 7 to 9 p.m. in the school’s cafeteria and is to help people become involved in discussions of a proposed coal-export terminal at Cherry Point, near Bellingham.
Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring is expected to speak at the workshop. The school is located at 1605 Seventh St.
