There he forms an unlikely partnership with the woman downstairs, the pie baker Mrs. Lovett, herself an outcast with an axe to grind against the ruling powers. When the two hatch a gutsy plan for revenge, the powerful elite – who have for years swept the powerless under the rug – are soon swallowed up by the same hungry masses they worked to oppress.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 24 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

West Seattle Garden Tour 2017 @ Various West Seattle locations
Jun 25 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

From the West Seattle Garden Tour:

The 23rd annual West Seattle Garden Tour will take place on Sunday, June 25, 2017, from 9 AM to 5 PM. This year’s tour will feature 10 stunning private gardens, and shine a spotlight on one of West Seattle’s beautiful P-Patches. From waterside gardens with sweeping views of Puget Sound to pocket-sized tribute gardens rich with emotion and personal history, the variety of gardens on this year’s tour will offer something special for every gardener looking for a little inspiration.

GARDENS

Full garden descriptions can be found here.

A Garden for All Seasons

With a treehouse spanning the branches of two cedar trees, a rope swing swaying in the breeze, and a dog and kid-friendly lawn curving around the front and side of the house, it’s easy to assume this garden was designed and created to be a child’s paradise. But the rocky fire pit, a cedar table with seating for 18, and a working office tucked away among cedars, make it clear this garden is not only kid-friendly but adult-functional as well.

Plant Lover’s Garden

Four years ago, the house and garden at this location were demolished to make way for a more contemporary and accessible house. The former garden—on the tour in 1999—was a thirsty, high-maintenance English cottage garden. The new garden, like the new house, focuses on sustainability, ease of care and accessibility.

Conifers and Color

With the abundance of pines, junipers and cedars, it’s clear this gardener appreciates that evergreen trees make for a lush garden all year long. This is a garden for lingering, surrounded by the cool beauty and serenity of green.

Northwest Terraced Hillside

Forests that have lined the beaches of Puget Sound for centuries have been swiftly disappearing in favor of development. For 37 years, the gardeners at this hillside home have been fulfilling their labor of love: bringing the forest back to the beach.

Corner Paradise

A small front yard and parking strip that stretches around the corner have been carefully planned to contain every northwest-friendly plant on the gardener’s wish list. What was once just grass and a fir tree has become the showy green oasis of the neighborhood

Labyrinth Garden

A passion for life is in full display in this remarkable and nearly indescribable 3-layer garden of love and dedication.

Spring Hill Villa

The joy of gardening is abundantly apparent at Spring Hill Villa where the family has been actively gardening for 40 years. Cast an eye toward the brilliant blue of the sky and the vibrant green of the lawn as a backdrop and observe the rich proliferation of colors, textures, varieties, and a profusion of plants and trees native to the Pacific Northwest.

Birch Dream by the Sea

The front and back gardens of this lovely home on Puget Sound directly contrast with each other. A woodland garden of refuge and calm is welcoming in front, whereas a Mediterranean-style entertaining garden on the waterside adapts well to the harsh demands of the hot, western exposure and salty air.

Beach Cottage

Three micro-climates call for three distinct styles of gardens at this 103-year-old cottage near the beach. The drought-tolerant garden, stretching along the parking strip and sidewalks, sits in direct line of the summer’s full sun. To the east is the Zen garden, with a light and dark theme achieved with leaf color intended to mimic shadows and sunlight. The tribute garden, protected by buildings and fences, is a reminder of times spent in Trinidad and Tobago.

Sound View Garden

As with many mid-century homes and gardens, remodels have upgraded this property, but changes didn’t come for this 1951 charmer until the current owners bought it in 2003. Some original trees remain strong to this day: two 60-year-old Japanese maples still flourish in the courtyard and southwest corner of the house, and a majestic 80-year-old magnolia is central to the backyard.

Solstice P-Patch

This beautiful hillside community garden was built on fill from the Mt. Baker Tunnel. The 34 plots, built and terraced by the gardeners with stack blocks, contain herbs, vegetables, fruit trees, berries, and perennials.

BENEFICIARIES

West Seattle Garden Tour has selected six local non-profits as beneficiaries of the 2017 tour. This year proceeds from the WSGT will support two summer arts education programs, two public garden renovations, a wetlands restoration project, and resources to double the fruit harvest yield in West Seattle for the local emergency food system. The beneficiaries are: ArtsWest, City Fruit, Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association, One Reel, Seattle Children’s PlayGarden, and West Seattle Bee Garden.

This year WSGT has increased its fundraising goal from $25,000 to $30,000, which, if reached, will be the largest annual gift in the 23-year-old organization’s history.

Information about the selected beneficiaries and the projects WSGT expects to fund can be found at here.

TOUR ARTWORK

In March West Seattle Garden Tour announced The Sower by artist Sarah Mottaghinejad as the winner of this year’s annual art competition. The Sower features cherry veneer, acrylic, watercolor, mica, and hollyhock seeds on a clay panel measuring 18” x 24”. The artwork is featured on the 2017 Garden Tour’s official poster and ticket book.

West Seattle Garden Tour will auction the original artwork on the day of the tour, Sunday, June 25, 2017. Bids will be taken in one of the gardens from 9 AM to 5 PM. Proceeds will benefit the year’s designated beneficiaries.

The artwork and a publicity photo of  Sarah Mottaghinejad can be found here.

Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Based on an adaptation by Christopher Bond
1979 Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book, Score, and Lyrics

Stephen Sondheim’s bloody masterpiece Sweeney Todd – a worldwide success since its Broadway premiere in 1979 – tells the tale of an unjustly exiled man who, after returning to the city that cast him out, finds refuge in an abandoned attic barbershop. There he forms an unlikely partnership with the woman downstairs, the pie baker Mrs. Lovett, herself an outcast with an axe to grind against the ruling powers. When the two hatch a gutsy plan for revenge, the powerful elite – who have for years swept the powerless under the rug – are soon swallowed up by the same hungry masses they worked to oppress.

Author Gillian G. Gaar will be signing copies of the new book she co-authored with Mike McInnerney and Bill DeMain, Sgt.

The 6:30 pm signing will be followed by an in-store performance by Beatles tribute band Creme Tangerine at 7:30 pm. Featuring contributions from leading authorities on the Beatles’ music, Sgt. Pepper at Fifty provides an in-depth critique of the album, by looking at the unique cultural circumstances that led to its creation; examining the rich assemblage of influences that informed its sound; exploring the landmark cover art, which continues to inspire debate and intrigue; and assessing the record’s enduring legacy as the pinnacle of British pop.

Gillian G. Gaar has written for numerous publications, including Mojo, Rolling Stone, and Goldmine. She was a senior editor at The Rocket, before, during, and after “grunge.” Her previous books include She’s A Rebel: The History of Women in Rock & Roll, Entertain Us: The Rise of Nirvana, Return of the King: Elvis Presley’s Great Comeback, Green Day: Rebels With a Cause, and The Doors: The Illustrated History.

Stephen Sondheim’s bloody masterpiece Sweeney Todd – a worldwide success since its Broadway premiere in 1979 – tells the tale of an unjustly exiled man who, after returning to the city that cast him out, finds refuge in an abandoned attic barbershop. There he forms an unlikely partnership with the woman downstairs, the pie baker Mrs. Lovett, herself an outcast with an axe to grind against the ruling powers. When the two hatch a gutsy plan for revenge, the powerful elite – who have for years swept the powerless under the rug – are soon swallowed up by the same hungry masses they worked to oppress.

Stephen Sondheim’s bloody masterpiece Sweeney Todd – a worldwide success since its Broadway premiere in 1979 – tells the tale of an unjustly exiled man who, after returning to the city that cast him out, finds refuge in an abandoned attic barbershop. There he forms an unlikely partnership with the woman downstairs, the pie baker Mrs. Lovett, herself an outcast with an axe to grind against the ruling powers. When the two hatch a gutsy plan for revenge, the powerful elite – who have for years swept the powerless under the rug – are soon swallowed up by the same hungry masses they worked to oppress.

Stephen Sondheim’s bloody masterpiece Sweeney Todd – a worldwide success since its Broadway premiere in 1979 – tells the tale of an unjustly exiled man who, after returning to the city that cast him out, finds refuge in an abandoned attic barbershop. There he forms an unlikely partnership with the woman downstairs, the pie baker Mrs. Lovett, herself an outcast with an axe to grind against the ruling powers. When the two hatch a gutsy plan for revenge, the powerful elite – who have for years swept the powerless under the rug – are soon swallowed up by the same hungry masses they worked to oppress.

‘Mount Rainier’s Historic Inns and Lodges’ book talk @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Jul 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

From the Log House Museum:

“Mount Rainier’s Historic Inns and Lodges” Presented by Local Authors Jeff and Sonja Anderson July 7th at Barnes & Noble

In time for the 100th Anniversary of Mt. Rainier’s Paradise Inn, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” hosts Jeff and Sonja Anderson in Mount Rainier’s Historic Inns and Lodges (Arcadia Publishing, May 2017), their detailed sharing of the oldest public buildings on the mountain.Visitors today might be surprised to know that many inns, rental cabins, bathhouses, and other buildings have come and gone, leaving some areas more pristine now than for much of the park’s history. The Inn sits against the panoramic backdrop of Mount Rainier, with views of the nearby Nisqually Glacier.

Sonja Anderson (the Sophie Topfeather books) teamed with her husband Jeff to produce this illustrated history of the accommodations on Mt. Rainier, from tent “hotels” to more elaborate inns for visitors to the national park. Many of those buildings are long gone, but they live again in this historical accounting. Early visitors rode pack horses or hiked miles to tent “hotels” at Theosophy Ridge, Indian Henry’s Hunting Ground, and Ohanapecosh.

This free book-talk will be the 44th installment of Words, Writers & West Seattle, the ‘First Friday’ series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. It will take place at 5 p.m. Friday, July 7th, 2017, at Barnes & Noble/ Westwood Village.

Jeff and Sonja Anderson discovered the interesting historical images of the park while on a family trip to Paradise Inn and wanted to know more. They culled the extensive collection of images at Mount Rainier National Park Archives to present their story of change and preservation. Jeff and Sonja live in Shorewood, where she teaches and they have two daughters.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next First Friday book-talk is scheduled for August 4th and will feature Jenny D. Williams and her novel The Atlas of Forgotten Places (St. Martin’s Press, May 2017), is part political thriller, part love story about two women from different worlds, Africa and Germany.

For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, Words, Writers & West Seattle by phone at 206-290-8315 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jul 8 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

There is a minimal fee of $5 for the use of the room. First-timers are free. We start with a critique and paint the rest of the time. Beginners and experienced artists are welcome. If you are a beginner we can get you started. We usually have an annual show in the Fall.
