      “The Workshop”, with Dave Erickson on saxophone, Trevor Pelletier on bass, and Charlotte Dike at the piano, is named after Ev Stern’s Jazz Workshop, where this young and dynamic trio coalesced in Seattle. Each player brings a widely different background to the group’s sound, from Dave’s secret talent on vocals, to Trevor’s lifelong passion for Mingus, to Charlotte’s illustrious classical background. The blend of these players provides a fresh and eclectic interpretation of music rooted in jazz tradition.

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

    9. Dennis James performs at Silent Movie Sunday @ Kenyon Hall
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Theater Organist Dennis James accompanies silent comedy short films on The Mighty Wurlizter, with Hall favorites Connie Corrick and Hugh Hastings for Silent Movie Sunday at Kenyon Hall at 7:30 pm.

      Dennis, Connie Corrick, and Hugh Hastings return for their third program in the new series, 1915 in Sight and Sound – silent movies and popular music from 100 years ago. This time they celebrate the Ragtime era, and Dennis is bringing us some classic piano rags by some of the greatest composers of the genre—all works debuted in 1915—by Joseph Lamb, James Scott, Felix Arndt and others. 1915 was also the year of the Fox Trot, and one of the silent films in the show will be the that year’s hit, “Fox Trot Finesse,” featuring Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew mixing silliness with subtlety in their pleasant little two-step comedy.

      Reserved table seats are $14. Row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle, and high school students are $5. Preschool children are free.

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      The first in the 2015 series Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle takes place Thursday March 26th, 7:00–8:30 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). $5 suggested donation, kids free. Tickets are available online.

      “2015 Killer Whale Research Survey”
      Presentation by Brad Hanson, Northwest Fisheries Science Center

      Researchers recently spent 21 days aboard the NOAA ship Bell M. Shimada, tracking endangered Southern Resident killer whales (SRKWs) off the coasts of Washington and Oregon. Good weather and ocean conditions allowed researchers exceptional access to the whales, including the first sighting of new calf L121, during their winter foraging period.

      The winter survey addressed a high research priority to fill a major gap in our understanding of SRKWs life history – where these whales go during the winter, what they do, and what they eat.

      Join us for this special presentation by Dr. Brad Hanson, NWFSC lead killer
      whale researcher. Be the first to hear what researchers observed, and how
      data collected on this cruise will help recover J, K and L pods.

      This is the first in the 2015 series Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail
      in West Seattle. The event also features updates from Robin Lindsay (Seal Sitters), and Diver Laura James (tox-ick.org).

      Buy tickets early to reserve your seat. And hurry! This will likely sell
      out.

      About the Speaker
      Brad Hanson joined the Northwest Fisheries Science Center in April of 2003. Previously, Brad worked as a Wildlife Biologist at the National Marine Mammal Laboratory in Seattle, WA. Brad received a Ph.D. from the University of Washington where he worked on the development of improved tag attachment systems for small cetaceans. He also holds an M.S. in Fisheries from the University of Washington and a B.A. in Zoology also from the University of Washington. Brad is an ecologist and is currently studying foraging and habitat use of Southern Resident killer whales and health assessment of harbor and Dall’s porpoises.

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

    9. Free clinic: How to bike commute in Seattle @ Cycle University
      6:30 pm – 7:15 pm

      Craig Undem, owner and head coach at Cycle University is giving a free clinic this Wednesday night at Cycle U at 6:30 pm: How to bike commute in Seattle. Free tea and coffee as well, finshing at 7:15 pm, 3418 Harbor Ave SW, free parking as always across the street.

      I love riding my bike in traffic (this is Craig talking), today on my commute through downtown I felt like I was a motocycle in Hong Kong in rush hour traffic, but it was a Sunday, and I was just riding to the West Seattle store from the Sand Point store. I arrived at work feeling 20 times better than when I had started, energized, calm and flush with circulation and awake. I have been a bike commuter since I moved to Colorado to start racing in 1987, and there are few things in life that make more sense than riding your bike to work. Here are the key benefits:

      1. Get in better shape

      2. No waiting in traffic or long lines of cars

      3. No gas and the repair bills are 1/20th of a car

      4. Parking is always (or almost always) right in front of your destination

      5. You feel more connected because you feel, smell and really see the
      area, you are a participant in the dance of travel, not just a passenger
      (today a road worker gave me a head nod and “have a nice ride Bro”, you
      don’t get that in a car). I also stopped and chatted with a friend at the
      West Seattle bridge and felt the wind off the water.

      6. It is often faster or just as fast as driving

      In our commuting class we will go over the key elements of a good commute:

      route
      bike/tires/brakes
      gear
      clothing for riding and working
      dangers and things to avoid
      tricks and ways to get started on any length commute
      This is a lecture/dry land class without riding. We will be doing a ride
      from West Seattle to downtown Seattle on Saturday at noon, more details at
      the clinic.
      With traffic getting worse as the economy gets better, it makes more sense
      now than ever to ride your bike to work and on errands. Email Craig with
      any questions: Craig@cycleu.com

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

    6. Words, Writers & West Seattle: Cathy and Jake Jaramillo @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Authors & Urban Hikers Cathy and Jake Jaramillo present at “Words, Writers
      & West Seattle”

      April 3rd “Book Talk” event sponsored by SW Seattle Historical Society

      Cathy and Jake Jaramillo are retired executives who now enjoy spending more time doing wilderness and urban hikes with each other. Together they have written Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods, the city’s first guidebook to the best neighborhood walks in Seattle that feature public stairways.

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5-7 pm on Friday, April 3rd, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      As one of America’s hilliest cities, Seattle has dozens of little-known stairways offering intimate access to a fascinating variety of neighborhoods and Jaramillo’s Seattle Stairway Walks includes several in West Seattle: the “Fauntleroy and Morgan Junction Walk”, the “North Admiral Stairway Walk”, and the the “Alki From Above Walk”. In addition to presenting their book to the West Seattle audience, Cathy and Jake are offering to conduct a modified version of the Alki walk for the “Words, Writers & West Seattle” audience on Sunday, April 9th, beginning and ending at the Loghouse Museum, 3003 61st Ave SW, the home of the SW Seattle Historical Society.

      Jaramillo’s book gives curious urban hikers a handy guide to exploring the
      city’s neighborhoods from a whole new angle. It’s a “best of” compilation of 25 scenic walking byways all over town, each one including detailed directions, pictures and maps along with descriptions of local scenic and architectural highlights. Stopping points for lunch, coffee or a local craft brew are included too, not to mention key stats like stair counts, time required, and distance.

      Since moving to Seattle in 2000, Jaramillos discovered that Seattle’s many stairways are the perfect way to get wonderful views of the diverse neighborhoods. Jake and Cathy were inspired to write this book because of the memory of many happy hours spent exploring the stairways of L.A. with Cathy’s parents.

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next FIRST FRIDAY book-talk is scheduled
      for May 1st and will feature West Seattle author/illustrator and SSC instructor, Jan Koutsky with her book My Grandma, My Pen Pal. Additional
      information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye
      Hendricks, chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at
      206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net .

      Pajama Game
      April 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm
      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      Drop-off tax help is offered on a first come, first served basis.

      Required Documents
      To receive tax help, bring the following documents:
      - Photo identification (required)
      - Social Security cards for everyone listed on the tax return

      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Councilmember Tom Rasmussen is holding a series of public meetings to gather community input about a proposal to establish a Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) program in Seattle. This would be a voluntary program through which residents have a voice in the design of proposed developments.

      April 7, 6:00 pm
      High Point Community Center
      6920 34th Ave SW

      The purpose of a NCD program is to help neighborhoods keep their unique physical attributes through design guidelines and review. Under the proposed program the City’s Department of Neighborhoods would review requests of neighborhoods to become a Neighborhood Conservation District and would manage a Neighborhood Conservation District Board which would review development proposals to ensure that they are consistent with the distinctive physical character of a neighborhood.

      Qualifying neighborhoods would have strong design characteristics that the community would like to see preserved, but may not be eligible or appropriate for historic district status.

      Neighbors are invited to attend to learn more and share their perspective.

      Pajama Game
      April 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm
      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

      The Spinster and the Carpenter – Rebecca Rose

      April 9th – May 24th, 2015
      Opens Thursday April 9th, 6 to 9 pm
      With guest cellist Sarah McGrath

      Artist Talk: Saturday April 11th, 2015 6 to 8 pm

      Early on Rebecca Rose saw similarities between Sculpture Foundry and Metalsmithing Jewelry, and in both cases transformed an idea from concept to reality out of carved wax and burnable objects. Rose plaster coats the original, kiln fires it, melts metal, and pours it into the negative space. Discovering that jewelry and sculpture could be the same, interchangeable, and all that was missing was a way to bridge the two until she then came up with the current body of work: wearable art + small sculpture = Sculpturings.

      “My methods involve a process called kitbashing, where I assemble wax and burnable objects reminiscent of childhood toys, game pieces, organic materials, and imported miniatures to convey a narrative or story. Recycled objects and elements find their way into the mix as new life is breathed into discarded items that become precious metals, literally turning trash into treasure.

      Marlin Greene

      Artist’s Statement:
      The setting: Nature.
      The gear: Canon.
      The goal: a beautiful print.

      “I strive to create beautiful prints, not just take pictures.

      With every image I try to capture scenes and situations the viewer may not have ever experienced. On the best of days, these images will stir up unexpected realizations and emotions in me and the viewer. The process is a magical journey, from pressing the shutter to viewing the print for the first time.”

      Time seems to stop when you gaze at Greene’s stunningly beautiful works. Join us for a restorative and refreshing Art Walk. Light snacks and sippables to enjoy for the whole evening. Bring a pal.

      Our Daily Homage
      Eric Carson
      Mark Daughhetee
      Jenny Fillius

      M​ARCH 12 – MAY 2, 2015
      ​Reception & Artist Talks: Thursday, ​April 9th, 6-9pm

      With sculpture, drawing and painting, Eric Carson, Mark Daughhetee, and Jenny Fillius each work with found mythology to suggest themes of reclamation and devotion in our contemporary world.

      Eric Carson uses the format of the mandala [the Hindu/Buddhist ritualistic design that organizes a spiritual experience in visual terms] to symbolically connect the world’s religions to each other, and to comment on the intersection of those beliefs with political and cultural issues. The way these line-based drawings are made—as well as their content—suggests a hybrid of references, from Western cartoons to Hieronymus Bosch to Hindu devotional painting. Carson writes, “These pieces present insight traditions around the world as petals of the same flower, not creeds to divide by or kill for.”

      Mark Daughhetee’s Stations series of assemblage sculptures pay homage to old TV shows like Bonanza and The Lawrence Welk Show. Plastic cowboys stand stoically among clumps of hobby shop moss under a peaked roof. The format is reminiscent of compositions from the Renaissance and inspired by roadside memorials, as well as Thai spirit houses. Humor, child-like reverence for TV, and manhood (as defined by old Hollywood) are the main characters. Daughhetee writes, “Like one’s journey through life, each television program, in its turn, occupied center stage for a while and left when the curtain fell for the last time.”

      Describing her process, Jenny Fillius writes “Being observant, anything can trigger an idea—an overheard expression, something on the street, an experience, the metal, a broken tin toy; literally anything.” Fillius finds and repurposes decorative sheet metal in the form of broken toys and used tin food containers to make sculptures suggestive of the retablos of Mexican folk art. Since most of the metal Fillius uses appears to have come from one’s childhood, or one’s parent’s childhood, the narratives that ensue are partly-articulated hints that nostalgia has gone awry in some way that we in 2015 are privy to.

      West Seattle High School’s Drama Club and Music Department proudly presents:

      Pajama Game
      April 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm
      April 10 – special benefit performance at 8 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 TONY for Best Musical and over half a century later claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical – proving the story is truly timeless. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe
      Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7-1/2 cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

      Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” The Pajama Game is a perennial favorite, a sure-fire crowd-pleaser and a glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.

    14. Wildlife Friendly Gardening for Natural Pest Control @ Village Green Perennial Nursey
      11:00 am – 1:00 pm

      April 11th from 11 am to 1 pm Village Green Perennial Nursery:

      Join the Garden Hotline (Seattle Tilth) and Village Green Perennial Nursery for a workshop on Wildlife Friendly Gardening for Natural Pest Control! The beauty of songbirds, butterflies, and beneficial insects is ample reason to create a wildlife-friendly garden, but there’s so much more to the picture! When you provide good habitat for birds and beneficial insects, they will in turn provide you with natural pest and weed control, increasing your garden’s health while decreasing your maintenance time.

      This workshop will teach you about the plants and design techniques that attract these delightful creatures to visit and live in your garden. We will also cover problematic wildlife and how to manage them in the garden. A Village Green Perennial Nursery garden tour and a chance to pick up some great wildlife friendly plants to take home for your own garden is included. Informational brochures will be available. Dress for the weather, we will be outside. Street parking, walk down driveway to back of house. Village Green is a residence/business/permaculture farm and garden.

      The Spinster and the Carpenter – Rebecca Rose

      Artist Talk: Saturday April 11th, 2015 6 to 8 pm

      (Exhibit runs April 9th – May 24th, 2015)

      Early on Rebecca Rose saw similarities between Sculpture Foundry and Metalsmithing Jewelry, and in both cases transformed an idea from concept to reality out of carved wax and burnable objects. Rose plaster coats the original, kiln fires it, melts metal, and pours it into the negative space. Discovering that jewelry and sculpture could be the same, interchangeable, and all that was missing was a way to bridge the two until she then came up with the current body of work: wearable art + small sculpture = Sculpturings.

      “My methods involve a process called kitbashing, where I assemble wax and burnable objects reminiscent of childhood toys, game pieces, organic materials, and imported miniatures to convey a narrative or story. Recycled objects and elements find their way into the mix as new life is breathed into discarded items that become precious metals, literally turning trash into treasure.

    2. Birds and Habitats Hike @ Soundway Park
      8:00 am – 10:00 am

      From Nature Consortium:

      Starting in April, we’re introducing a new series of community events in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. On our guided forest hikes, you can explore our local parks and trails in a fun, educational, and family-friendly group. Each hike will center on a different theme or activity, including wildlife, scavenger hunts, plant systems, fitness, and more.

      Birds and Habitats: Learn how birds benefit from our restoration efforts and see or hear who is singing and who is nesting at Soundway and maybe who is stopping in West Seattle during migration. The bird walk will be led by Mike Witter of Audubon Neighborhood Bird Project, an experienced birder who is familiar with birding by ear as well as the habitats offered in the greenbelt. Come rain or shine. Bring appropriate outdoor clothing and binoculars if you have them. Sunday, April 12, 8-10 am at Soundway Park (14th Ave SW & SW Holly St, Seattle)

      There is no registration required for these Forest Hikes.
