With the holiday weekend in view, things are getting quieter. Almost quiet enough to hear the birds sing in the middle of a busy day (some of them start before dawn – 4:15 am, today!). But we’re still seeing gems on the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar, including:

TOUR THE LONGHOUSE WITH THE DUWAMISH TRIBE’S LEADER: 1-2 pm, with discounted admission as part of Museum Week, you’re invited to tour the Duwamish Longhouse with Cecile Hansen, longtime elected chair of the Duwamish Tribe and great-great-great-great-grandniece of Chief Seattle. More info in our listing. (4705 W. Marginal Way SW)

NATURE, AFTER SCHOOL: Explore Camp Long with naturalist Stewart Wechsler, 3:30-4:30 pm, reservations suggested – details on his website. (5200 35th SW)

PITCH IN AT THE COMMUNITY ORCHARD: 5-7 pm Thursdays, you’re invited to tour and help out at the Community Orchard of West Seattle on the north side of the South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) campus, as explained here. (6000 16th SW)

GOOD EVENING, STARSHINE: Checked out the acclaimed production of “Hair” at ArtsWest (WSB sponsor) yet? 7:30 pm is your next chance; info here. (4711 California SW)

LIVE MUSIC: Tonight’s highlights include rockabilly at Salty’s (WSB sponsor), world/funk/acoustic/soul at Skylark Café and Club. (Are your entertainment venue’s listings in our calendar? No? Listings are free – just send the info to editor@westseattleblog.com at least a week in advance – thank you!)
