The College Street Ravine near King County Executive Dow Constantine‘s home got him into politics – and every year, the West Seattle-based Nature Consortium organizes a work party there to mark his birthday. Today was the day, and he was there before noon (right about the same time that, back in downtown Seattle, his office was sending word King County would start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples at 12:01 am December 6th). Later in the evening, he was scheduled for his traditional “39th birthday anniversary.” Back at the ravine, West Seattle musician Dan Pearson serenaded volunteers:

The Nature Consortium focuses on restoring forests/greenspace, and has a work party in the College Street Ravine every month (among other places) – sign up to join in, here.

  2. We had such a great time! In the photo above, Dow is pointing out the trees he planted years ago in the ravine that are now tall and healthy.
