A momentous day for West Seattle’s highest-ranking politician, King County Executive Dow Constantine. As he would put it, this is the 12th time he is celebrating his 39th birthday. Do the math, and you’ll notice it’s one of those milestone things. Tonight, he partied at The Paramount downtown (check out the marquee); this morning, he celebrated in a quieter way, with volunteers from the West Seattle-based Nature Consortium, whose volunteers mark his birthday and half-birthday every year with a work party at College Street Ravine, a greenspace not far from his west Admiral neighborhood. (Helping save it is what got him into politics in the first place, the story goes.) Above, the birthday guy with the NC’s restoration director, who was also celebrating a milestone birthday today (let’s say her 13th eighteenth birthday!), Lili Alalla; below, some of the volunteers tackling invasives:
You can join a Nature Consortium work party at sites like this one just about any time – they’re usually out three times a week; find out more here.
