      KEXP Hood-to-Hood Challenge victory party

      Every year, fundraising drive, KEXP offers the party as a prize to the neighborhood that yields the most money during its summer fundraising drive, and last time West Seattle came out on top – a narrow victory, 100 dollars or so, but a win it was, so KEXP is planning the big bash here for Friday, May 29th.

      Per KEXP’s Jeff Vetting, one block of California SW will be closed to motorized vehicles that day, between Alaska and Oregon. The fun will include KEXP DJs broadcasting live, including West Seattleite Kevin Cole in the afternoon. Live music is planned on a stage that’ll be set up at SW Alaska – the full lineup isn’t public yet, except for Australia’s Miami Horror, which will be here as part of its U.S. tour. Then 6-9 pm, more KEXP DJ action at venues around West Seattle, followed by band showcases around town starting at 9 pm. Full announcement during Kevin’s show on KEXP next Tuesday (2-6 pm) – the bands, the venues, the extras.

    7. Alki “scouting expeditions” @ Log House Museum
      10:30 am – 12:00 pm

      From Clay Eals, executive director of Southwest Seattle Historical Society:

      The history of Alki Beach awaits a rich, multi-layered walking tour to be developed this spring by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, and you can help make it happen:

      The historical society plans three “scouting expeditions” on foot from 10:30 am to noon on three Saturdays this month. The walks will start and end at the historical society’s “Birthplace of Seattle” Log House Museum, 3003 61st Ave. S.W.

      People can sign up for one, two or all three sessions. They will cover these sections of the beach:

      ~ The promenade, Saturday, May 9

      ~ The sandy beach, Saturday, May 16

      ~ The rocky beach north to the former Luna Park (often called Anchor Park), Saturday, May 30

      Leading the sessions is Dave Hrachovina, who grew up in West Seattle and is the museum’s regular docent/greeter on Fridays and Saturdays. He is looking forward to putting together the beach walks.

      “You never get tired of Alki,” he says. “It is like an inexhaustible spring of pleasure for young and old. It is Seattle’s headwater, and it is contagious. The more you learn, the more it grows on you.”

      The purpose of the sessions is to identify points of interest to be included on a beach walk, everything from the Duwamish tribal story and the Landing Party saga to the times of shacks, tents and the “Coney Island of the West.” Icons present and past will be part of the mix, including the “Birthplace of Seattle” monument, the Statue of Liberty replica, the Alki Bathhouse, the Alki Natatorium and Luna Park.

      If you are interested in taking part in these “scouting expeditions,” please call 206-938-5293 or e-mail clay.eals@loghousemuseum.info to reserve your spot.

      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      “Book Talk” event sponsored by SW Seattle Historical Society

      Sarah Fox talks of “Downwind: A People’s History of the Nuclear West”

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

      The next presenter in the “Words, Writers & West Seattle” First Friday series is West Seattle’s Sarah Alizabeth Fox, author of Downwind: A People’s History of the Nuclear West (Bison Books, 2014, genre: history and energy).

      Her FREE talk will run from 5 to 7 pm Friday, June 5, 2015, at Barnes & Noble Westwood Village. It will be the 21st installment since the SW Seattle Historical Society’s “First Friday” monthly series began in October 2013. All purchases made by those attending the talk that afternoon and for the next five days will result in a contribution of 10 percent of proceeds to the Southwest Seattle Historical Society under the Barnes and Noble Bookfair program.

      Downwind is an unflinching tale of the atomic West that reveals the intentional disregard for human and animal life through nuclear testing by the federal government and uranium extraction by mining corporations during and after the Cold War.

      Fox highlights the personal cost of nuclear testing and uranium extraction in the American West through extensive interviews with “downwinders,” the Native American and non-Native residents of the Great Basin region affected by nuclear environmental contamination and nuclear-testing fallout. These downwinders tell tales of communities ravaged by cancer epidemics, farmers and ranchers economically ruined by massive crop and animal deaths, and Native miners working in dangerous conditions without proper safety equipment so that the government could surreptitiously study the effects of radiation on humans.

      In chilling detail Downwind brings to light the stories and concerns of these groups whose voices have been silenced and marginalized for decades in the name of “patriotism” and “national security.”

      Fox lives in West Seattle and is a freelance writer, editor, folk historian, mother and waitress. She holds a Master’s Degree in History and Folklore from Utah State University and a Bachelors Degree in American Studies from the Evergreen State College. Her work has appeared in Montana: The Magazine of Western History, the Western Historical Quarterly.

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next First Friday book-talk is scheduled for July 10th (a second Friday, owing to the 4th of July holiday) and will feature West Seattle author Joe Gustav and his book, In Deep: The Story of Global Diving and Salvage . 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:

      Dear neighbors,
      How can robotic technology help people and communities in ways it has not yet? How might a mobile app help solve a common problem? What goes into building the speediest drag racer? Can you build a robot sumo wrestler? What does STEM mean to our youth today? All these questions and more will be answered by elementary and middle school students at the TAF Expo this Saturday.

      The TAF Expo is an annual end-of-school-year exhibition event celebrating the accomplishments of TAF students. Kids and families who are curious about STEM learning opportunities in Southwest Seattle and want to see a sampling of what TAF and #STEMbyTAF are all about, are encouraged to attend. This year’s Expo is on Saturday, June 6, 10 am-1 pm, at TAF’s headquarters, Bethaday Community Learning Space, in White Center (605 SW 108th St., Seattle, WA 98146).

      Here’s what you can expect to see at the Expo on June 6th:
      ~ Youth Inventions: innovative STEM solutions developed by 6th-8th graders from the White Center region
      ~ STEM Project-Based Learning at Mount View Elementary exhibition with 3rd-6th graders
      ~ Youth robotics competitions by 4th-6th graders: robot drag race, a fancy robot “catwalk” revue, and TAF’s ever-popular Sumo Wrestling Robot tournament!
      ~ Peer youth coding workshops led by young women from Girls Who Code
      ~ Hands-on STEM workshops for young children, provided by Pop-Up Science, a Seattle-based nonprofit mobile science museum (www.pop-upscience.com/)
      ~ More information about TAF Programs in White Center and beyond
      ~ Food, prizes, FUN!

      Lunch will be provided. This is an all-ages family event; children who are not currently enrolled in TAF programs must be accompanied by an adult. White Center area youth who are currently in 5th and 6th grade, who may be interested in our middle school STEMbyTAF Labs program, and their families are especially encouraged to attend.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      Art Walk June 11th, 6 to 9pm

      Artist Talk: Artist Talk and Reception with the artist, July 9th, 6 to 9 pm

      With Feral Women Katrina del Mar continues to explore the theme of wild women who break with convention, an obsession she’s had since childhood. The wildness in women, sometimes overt, sometimes subtle is, for del Mar, a manifestation of innate inestimable power and therefore a source of the divine. Large scale, hi octane, full color, super-saturated photographs could be scenes from forgotten, fantastic films. The high hard femme, the bad girl, the rocker, the biker, the surfer-selkie, are icons of a new feminist pantheon.

      Where: Alki Beach, West Seattle (assemble at Alki’s Statue of Liberty plaza, 61st Ave SW and Alki Ave SW)
      *Note: RSVP on SS website)
      (please bring a pair of gloves if you can – while we will try to have enough materials on hand, we are expecting a large turnout)


      Tying in with our theme of marine debris for Flipper Fest, we are having a beach cleanup at Alki on Saturday morning, June 13th, from 9-11:30 am. It will be a very low tide that day and we expect to find a lot of trash and most certainly at least 1,000 cigarette butts – of the estimated 360 billion that are discarded every year in the U.S. alone, all the while leaching toxic chemicals into the soil and waterways. Since most marine debris originates from land, we will be scouring the streets and sidewalks along the beach as well.

      We hope to have a big turnout of passionate people who want to help keep wildlife safe. For more details, you can visit our website events page. There you will find info on West Seattle seal pup Sandy and the Arroyos gray whale, in whose honor we hold these annual beach cleanups.

      We’re requesting that folks RSVP on the link included on the events page so that we can ensure we have enough buckets and other materials on hand. NOAA’s Peggy Foreman will give a short talk about the human trash found in the Arroyos whale before we disperse. PAWS Wildlife will have a representative there to discuss seal pup rehab. We’ll assemble at the Statue of Liberty plaza.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

Unlike most marine mammal stranding networks, we encourage children to participate in Seal Sitters – supervised at all times, of course, by a parent or guardian. We are so proud of our amazing and dedicated volunteers who are on duty rain or shine – we hope you will join us!

      A multi-media presentation will illustrate Seal Sitters MMSN’s educational work in the community and the unique challenges of protecting seals and other marine mammals in an urban environment. Included in the training is an overview of NOAA’s Western Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network and biology and behavior of seals and other pinnipeds (due to time frame, supplementary sessions will include more marine mammals of Puget Sound).

      FOR MORE DETAILS AND RSVP, visit Seal Sitters’ event page. RSVP is required to assure seating. (Please include full name and name/ages of children)

      7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      At Kenyon Hall on Sunday, June 14th at 7:30 pm:

      Roy Zimmerman in “The Faucet’s on Fire!”
      Roy Zimmerman sings satirical songs: original songs about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans (a lot of songs about Republicans), ignorance, war, and greed. The Los Angeles Times says, “Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society’s foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer.” Tom Lehrer himself says, “I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually rhyme, they don’t just ‘rhyne.’”

      In twelve albums over twenty years, and on stages, screens, and airwaves across America, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for peace and social justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records, and he’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. His videos have garnered nearly seven million views on YouTube. Please visit www.royzimmerman.com for more information.

      Tickets for “The Faucet’s on Fire!” are $18 general and $16 seniors/students. No table seats for this performance.

      To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.

      Categories: Music

      Musicians of West Seattle Community Orchestras will present a chamber recital Tuesday, June 16, 7:00 pm, in the Chapel at Providence Mount Saint Vincent.

      The public is invited and it’s totally free!

      The program, the first of its kind for WSCO, will include two brass soloists, Toni Reineke, on baritone horn, playing long-time favorites, and Steve Twitchell, tuba, playing Suite for—you guessed it—Tuba!

      A very special part of the performance will be students in WSCO’s beginning strings for adults, coached by Kelly Moore. They’ll play a selection of traditional tunes. (Note that though this is called a “beginning” class, their sound is far more advanced!)

      Ending the program will be WSCO’s Brass Sextet, playing a selection of Broadway hits.

      For more information, visit www.WSCOrchestras.org

      About WSCO:

      The West Seattle Community Orchestras (WSCO) was founded in 2003 as a community outlet for local musicians all of ages to engage in music-making through this unique intergenerational group of three orchestras. The Debut Orchestra is for beginning players; the Intermediate Orchestra, and Symphony, for community members and more experienced students. In total 190 musicians take part in the making of music, 100 of them from third grade through high school. Each week, professional coaching is provided for string students by Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) through a generous grant from the Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      You are invited to gather with the larger Catholic community of the region, ecumenical faith leaders, our neighbors, and those who have worked tirelessly in the Northwest to protect God’s creation.

In this kairos moment in the world, let us come together in hope and go out in action as we live into Pope Francis’ call to care for the Earth. Please join us!

      Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

      Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

      Summer Solstice Maintenance Work Party and Tour at the Seattle Chinese Garden Saturday, June 20th, 10 am to 3 pm. Come at any time, for any length of time.

      The Seattle Chinese Garden is one of the most unusual gardens in the Northwest and is largely maintained by volunteers. At this time of year with warm weather and “plants and weeds gone wild,” we need extra help to ensure the Garden looks its best for upcoming weddings, special events, regular visitors, and for you —our West Seattle neighbors. The work party begins at 10 am with a quick tour of our five-acre site, led by head gardener Bob Seely. See our authentic Sichuan-style grounds and architecture and our bamboo groves at the peak of shooting season. Enjoy learning about many other plants from China. Any level of gardening experience is welcome, and we love to answer gardening questions!

      Saturday’s work will include:
      • watering plants
      • moving soft soil to create new peony beds
      • weeding
      • pruning and thinning bamboo groves
      • raking and tidying beds
      • hauling debris to our composting areas

      If you have gardening tools, please bring them, along with gloves. And bring a lunch and drink, plus sunscreen and a hat. Anyone who aspires to prune should bring pruning shears, saws, loppers, and safety glasses. Long-handled hoes would be good to bring if you don’t want to get down on hands and knees.

      LOCATION: The Garden is at the north end of the South Seattle College campus, adjacent to the college arboretum. Check out our website at seattlechinesegarden.org for directions. Parking is free on 16th Avenue SW and is available on campus (North Entrance) for a nominal charge.

Included in the presentations will be books of memoirs, Greek mythology and mystery novels, grief guidance, adult fantasy, poetry, prose, fiction, “true life (archery) adventures” and inspirational/motivational literature.

      The purpose of this particular activity within the Festival is to promote the books of local authors of all genres, and the writers themselves, as individuals and as a group of cooperating West Seattle authors. Presentations will be scheduled every 15 min. and might include readings, book signing, questions/answers, a musical performance, or whatever the author wants to do. Some audience seating will be provided in booths behind Zeek’s Pizza, on the corner of Morgan and California.

      Morgan Festival 2015 – Local Authors and their Books:

      Christine Brantwww.christinebrant.com

      Red and Grey is a recreation of the folktale “Little Red Riding Hood”, appearing to be heavily influenced by other stories from the collection of the Brothers Grimm but is so much more than a simple retelling of the original. “Extensive world-building is used in this story to construct a mystical universe that contains a rich history and many layers of detail.”

      Christine Brant is a West Seattle author who lives with her husband, children, and pets. She won the Surrey International Storytellers Award in 2007 with her short story “A Decade of Scottsdale”. She’s worked at West Seattle High School and in her spare time, when not herding cats and kids, she loves to read and gaze out her window at the Puget Sound.

      Jeanette Chaplin – wordsareforever@gmail.com
      The Flowers of the Field mystery novels: Fireweed Glow, Sunflower Dungeon, and Bluebonnet Meltdown – The Hammer in the Stone (self-published).

      After 20 years of teaching college composition classes, Chaplin, author/educator/ editor/mentor, is making her experience and expertise available to other aspiring authors and has been giving writers’ workshops and helping individual authors with their writing projects. Her writing includes mystery novels, articles, short stories, poetry, and a one-act play. She has been published in inspirational publications, writers newsletters, and online “how-to” sites.

      Nicole Hardy – nicole.hardygirl@gmail.com
      Confessions of a Latter-day Virgin (Hachette Books, August 20, 2013) In this achingly candid memoir, Hardy delves more deeply into the dilemmas faced as she aged out of the church’s “single ward” and into her thirties. At a time when her mind should have been on the Mormon tenets of marriage and motherhood, Hardy found herself more interested in writing. Chronicles the extraordinary lengths the author went to in an attempt to reconcile her human needs with her spiritual life. Neither secular pursuits nor church guidance could help Hardy prepare for the dilemma she would eventually face: a crisis of faith that caused her to question everything she’d grown up believing.

      Hardy is a writer of memoir, poetry, and essays. She’s also a waitress, teacher, and would-be tambourine virtuoso. She lives in West Seattle, in her opinion, the best city for writers and readers.

      Michael G. Hickey – Mike.Hickey@seattlecolleges.edu
      A Dress Walked by with a Woman Inside – contemporary poetry and prose featuring material previously published by The Atlanta Review, The Seattle Review, and numerous other literary publications. http://tinyurl.com/oujr5xl

      Counterclockwise – a novel set in 1980 in which a world famous rock ‘n’ roll singer meets a grocery store clerk, and they inspire one another to face unresolved conflicts in their respective pasts. Sometimes one has to go backward in order to go forward. http://tinyurl.com/ouzuw4k

      Hickey was born in southern Illinois and is the oldest of eleven children. He received a BA in creative writing from the University of Arizona, 1987, and an MFA from the University of Washington, 1992. He has written a novel, two books of poetry, and is a tenured writing professor at South Seattle College. In 2008, he was elected as Seattle’s eighth “Poet Populist” for 2009. His life goal is to take over the world 25 students at a time.

      Alice Ann Kuderwww.SinceILastSawYou.com
      Since I Last Saw You (The Telltale Scribe, Seattle, WA, December 12, 2013) is the story of one woman’s personal road trip from tragedy to gratitude. It is an uplifting tale of love, loss and discovery with a Pacific Northwest backdrop. The narrative will warm your heart and perhaps inspire a new Thanksgiving tradition or two for you and your family.

      Like her protagonist, Alice Ann Kuder is an ardent, card-carrying native of Washington State. Having spent her formative years in Centralia, WA, Alice earned a BA in Business Administration at Western Washington University. Afterward, she reluctantly left the state for a few years of in-country travel and self-discovery. With her love of the Pacific Northwest reaffirmed, she moved to Seattle in 1988, working for the University of Washington for several years before choosing a new “day job” selling residential real estate. Ms. Kuder now resides in West Seattle with her canine companion and muse, Tess.

      Kuder says, “In my heart-of-hearts, I am a teacher. Unfortunately, I don’t possess the temperament to be happy or successful teaching in a traditional classroom setting, so I have always found other ways to fulfill my perceived vocation. For many years, I developed and presented workshops on topics as varied as personal budgeting, leadership development and catechism. Someone once pointed out to me that storytelling is the most powerful and well-received form of teaching. That’s one reason that Jesus, among other great teachers, used it so liberally and to such effect.

      Since that time, I have dreamed of coming up with an entertaining and inspiring story that would allow me to share some of the life lessons I’ve learned. In particular, I wanted to tell a story that would elucidate the role of gratitude in creating and living a joyful life. Since I Last Saw You is the result of that desire.

      Thanksgiving—the most underappreciated holiday on the American calendar, in my opinion—seemed like a perfect backdrop for such a tale, and is featured prominently in my novel. It’s my hope and my dream that Since I Last Saw You becomes a holiday tradition— a story that readers will want to revisit year after year and share with their families—much in the way that watching It’s a Wonderful Life is for me.”

      Theresa Mickey McCormick – theresamcco@comcast.net
      A Far Cry From Here – Growing Up and Out of Fundamentalism (UBS Press, 2014) Overlapping threads about the impact of racism and sexism and fundamentalism weave throughout this memoir making it a timely and compelling book laced with humor and love of family. Features adding to the feeling and tone of intimacy of the memoir include letters, diary entries, newspaper articles, family photos, and the essence of a few personal interviews.

      This memoir tells the story of author, Theresa Mickey McCormick, Ed.D., Professor Emeritus, Iowa State University, growing up in rural Texas in a fundamentalist Christian family.

      Molly Ringlewww.mollyringle.com/persephones-orchard.html
      Persephone’s Orchard and Underworld’s Daughter (Central Avenue Publishing, 2012)
      The love story of Persephone and Hades is retold and revived when memories of ancient Greek gods are awakened in modern youth. The adventure begins with Persephone’s Orchard and continues in Underworld’s Daughter.

      Ringle has been writing fiction for over twenty years. She grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and lives in West Seattle with her husband and children. Her studies include a bachelor of arts in anthropology and a master of arts in linguistics. She also loves folklore and mythology, and has recently completed three novels about the Greek myths. ‘Persephone’s Orchard’ is the first in the series. When not writing, she can often be found experimenting with fragrances, chocolate, and gardening.

      Morgan Sontag – morgan@breakfreetherapy.com
      “Never settle for less than what you truly desire.” writes Sontag, a co-author of the anthology, Women Living Consciously Book II – the perfect guide for your own journey of self-discovery and conscious living.

      The book features stories to enable living in a space of consciousness requiring intention, attention, and openness, asking that you explore and reveal parts of yourself previously hidden and perhaps parts you didn’t know existed. Living consciously takes true strength, practice, and devotion, and courage.

      Besides writing, Sontag, M.S., is the “Break Free” to an extraordinary life relation-ship coach, psychotherapist, educator, trainer, catalyst, and Hendricks Institute Transformational Leaders Program graduate. Morgan specializes in employing cutting-edge approaches that help dissolve negative mental patterns–criticizing, defending, denying, withholding, etc.– which prevent full self-expression. Weaving quickwitted humor with fun, Morgan guides clients to expand their capacity for joy by opening “stuck” places to unleash freedom and hidden potential. Daily doses of tear-streaming laughter, surprises, theater, writing, traveling, meeting people, and learning as much as possible keep life fresh and enlivening for Morgan.

      Watson has had a long career in education and includes a BA in Sociology from Augsburg College, certification in Early Childhood Education from the University of Minnesota, and American Montessori certification. She has had forty-five years of teaching experience in community colleges in Washington and Minnesota and worked at the Island County Health Department in Washington, developing parent education programs.

    22. Summer solstice sunset viewing at Solstice Park @ Solstice Park
      8:45 pm – 9:45 pm

      From Alice Enevoldsen of Alice’s Astro Info and NASA Solar System Ambassador fame:

      It’s time for the 25th seasonal sunset watch! Wow. That’s a lot. We should probably have some kind quadrans-quarter-ennial, or icosipenta-seasonal-versary, or quasqui-quadmensiversary celebration, don’t you think?

      When: Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 9:00 pm (so come at 8:45 pm)
      Actual sunset is supposed to be at 9:11 pm, but we have noticed that the Sun sets about 10 minutes earlier than the USNO says, because of the horizon altitude.

      The equinox moment is at Sunday, June 21, 2015 at 9:38 am, but we’re watching the sunset the night before not the sunrise because of how the park lines up.

      Where: Solstice Park — all the way up the hill from the tennis courts (or, if you’re not in Seattle, wherever you have a view of the western horizon!)

      Who: Everyone welcome, as usual.

      Come watch the sunset at Solstice Park in West Seattle. The stone markers have been removed for upkeep, so if they aren’t back yet, we’ll mark the location of the sunset ourselves. The earthworks are still in place, so we can definitely still see the alignment. It’ll be there even if it is cloudy because sometimes the Sun peeks through just as it begins to set, but if it is driving rain or sleet I’m staying home.

      This event is my part of the NASA’ss Solar System Ambassador program, and thanks to West Seattle Blog for publicizing all of them!

      Everyone is welcome, see you there!

      The Green Seattle Partnership has a goal of restoring 2,500 acres of City-owned forested parkland, with a scale of 0-4 to classify each phase of restoration. Phase 0 indicates a site where restoration has yet to begin and Phase 4 indicates a restored forest that is in need only of periodic monitoring and maintenance. As of this Spring several of Nature Consortium’s work sites have reached the holy grail of “fully restored” status-Phase 4! Come take a walk in the greenbelt to experience and take a look at a variety of restoration sites, including our prized Phase 4 sites. This hike will be led by Restoration Director Lizzie Zemke.
