West Seattle Wildlife calendar created with Mark Wangerin’s photos, to benefit Chief Sealth IHS

Ever think the wildlife photos featured on WSB might make a nice calendar? Turns out that one of the photographers who kindly shares his work here, Mark Wangerin, is making one! He has donated thirteen of his West Seattle wildlife photos, some of which you might have seen here, to be published in a 13-month calendar for 2015, with proceeds benefit environmental programs at Chief Sealth International High School, where Wangerin used to teach. Though 2015 seems far away, advance orders are welcome right now to jump-start the printing process. The calendar is 14″ x 14″, on heavy stock, wire-bound, shrink-wrapped, $14.99 from Mark House Publishing online (no relation, says photographer Mark). Above is the back page showing the photos featured in the calendar (which also is available at bulk rates, the publisher says).

  3. It’s a great idea, but I hope they will not include non-native, invasive species.

  4. Beautiful pictures of our local animals. We should embrace all life: perhaps even ugly animals should have a calendar. There is no need to be against non-native species as it isn’t their fault they are in the “wrong” place. While some are invasive, many are not and who is to say that what is happening is not “natural” given that humans exist in nature?
    Humans should quit being so anthropocentric as if we can win over Mother Nature. If we are lucky, modern humans will be around for a few more millennia and then **poof** out go the lights. One million years from now, nothing we do now will matter much anyway. And even if it did, you won’t care.
    Buy a callendar and enjoy the pictures.
