Thanks to David Hutchinson for sharing the photo of the first Canada goslings spotted off Harbor Avenue this year – earlier than usual. Be careful in the area – the families cross the road! Meantime, here are highlights for today/tonight from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

BE AN ORCHARD STEWARD: This is the second week of the Community Orchard of West Seattle‘s new season of weekly Thursday afternoon meetups, 3-5 pm, north side of the South Seattle Community College (6000 16th SW; WSB sponsor) campus. Details here.

THE WHALE TRAIL’S 2ND ORCA TALK: It’s been more than 7 years since our resident orcas were listed as endangered; are they recovering? NOAA’s Lynne Barre is tonight’s guest for the 2nd talk in The Whale Trail‘s series, 6:30 pm at C & P Coffee Company (5612 California SW; WSB sponsor), with Seal Sitters’ Robin Lindsey and tox-ick org’s “Diver Laura” James on hand too. Suggested donation $5.

SEATTLE POLICE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS: The Alki Community Council board will hear from Seattle Police about the cameras that were installed, unannounced, a month ago. Here’s our preview from last night, and our coverage archive. It’s a briefing, not a hearing, but the public is welcome, 7 pm at Alki UCC (62nd/Hinds).

SOUTHWEST TEEN LIFE CENTER ADVISORY COUNCIL: Get involved with the center and its activities as a community participant with the advisory council – or, just stop by the meeting to see what’s happening. 7 pm, 2801 SW Thistle.

NIGHTLIFE … comedy at The Benbow Room, live music at venues including Angelina’s, DJ at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), pub quiz at A Terrible Beauty … see all the listings on our calendar.
