Making the Mosses & Wildflowers Grow @ Lincoln Park
Oct 2 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Sunday October 2, 2016 at 10:00 am–1:00 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures offers: Making Mosses & Wildflowers Grow as We Sit on the Moss Bed – Lincoln Park:

Seattle’s rainy season is back, and the mosses have turned a brighter green! The moss layer is more important to our local natural communities than most people realize. Learn how the mosses, not only make a beautiful bottom layer of the plant community, but also help the other community members from the yellow Evergreen Violets to the Twinflowers, and likely even the Phantom Orchids. You can both help the mosses that grow on the ground, and the wildflowers that grow in those mosses. Stewart can teach you some of the story of almost any natural community member from the birds to the beetles, the mushrooms to the mosses, and the wildflowers to the weeds, that we see, hear or smell as we engage in the contemplative and calming task of helping the mosses grow while we sit on the moss bed. While you don’t need them, if you have them, you might bring a Hori Hori weeding tool, a maybe a good pair of leather gloves, and possibly a hand snippers, and maybe binoculars for the birds.

We will meet at Lincoln Park’s north parking lot (between SW Monroe St and SW Thistle St) by the kiosk at 10:00 am Sunday, October 2nd. You have the option to join us for coffee and pastries at Cafe Ladro (7011 California Ave SW) beforehand! Coffee hour starts at 8:30 am. I ask that people preregister to ensure that the group size is manageable both for me and the mosses. e-mail me at or phone me at 206 932-7225 (currently only land line).

No fee is required for this program, but Stewart appreciates any useful support that the human community gives him that will help the growth of the success of his efforts towards the protection and recovery of the natural wealth of our unique local natural community.

First Quarter Moon Walk with the Stars and Owls @ Lincoln Park

Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures
With the bright 1st quarter moon high in the sky, we’ll look, listen and hoot for the owls, learn about the natural community at night, and maybe see some stars if the clouds cooperate. Adult oriented program, but kids are welcome too! While the owls may be hiding and quiet, the trees can’t hide and we can always learn a bit about them or any other organism we can see, hear or smell.

$10 – $15 or best offer
