Washington State’s Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups: Making a Real Difference for Salmon (and Orcas) @ C & P Coffee Company
Mar 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Washington State’s Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups: Making a Real Difference for Salmon (and Orcas)

Presentation by Jeanette Dorner
When: Thursday March 30, 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
Where: C&P Coffee Company, 5612 California Ave SW
Cost: $5 suggested donation; kids free!

Presented by The Whale Trail

Salmon, the primary food for our endangered orcas (J, K and L pods), are in trouble. Almost 20 years ago the state of Washington created a network of 14 non-profits to work with local communities on salmon habitat restoration projects in different watersheds.

These Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups have worked since then with private landowners and community partners to identify and implement valuable projects that can help increase the number of salmon returning to Washington state.

The latest report on the state of Washingtons salmon shows that overall the recovery of endangered salmon is mixed and salmon populations in Puget Sound are still declining. It is even more important to support and invest in these efforts to restore habitat.

Jeanette will share what the Regional Fishery Enhancement Groups across the state are doing to make a difference and also about the group in Seattles backyard: the Mid Sound Fishery Enhancement Group and how you can help.

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

About the Speaker

Jeanette Dorner has a long history working to recover salmon in Puget Sound. She worked for 11 years as the Salmon Recovery Program Manager with the Nisqually Tribe, coordinating the protection and restoration of salmon habitat in the Nisqually watershed. She played a lead role in helping facilitate with partners major salmon restoration projects including the 900 acre restoration of the Nisqually Estuary. She then worked as the Director of Ecosystem and Salmon Recovery at the Puget Sound Partnership, supporting the work of hundreds of partners around Puget Sound to protect, restore and clean up their rivers, streams and Puget Sound shorelines.

In January of this year Jeanette became the Executive Director of the Mid Sound Fishery Enhancement Group. In her new role she is focused on working to grow the organization to achieve a broader impact on restoring salmon habitat in the Mid Sound area which includes the Green – Duwamish watershed, the Cedar/Sammamish/Lake Washington watershed, the watersheds of Eastern Kitsap County which drain into Central Puget Sound, and all the Puget Sound shorelines in the Central Puget Sound area in King County and Kitsap County.

Jeanette is also the mother to two wonderful kids – a thirteen year old boy and a seven year old girl. Part of her passion to recover salmon habitat and to preserve and protect this beautiful place we call home is to try to pass on to her children a home where they can continue to enjoy the natural wonders of this place with their families – going to watch orcas swimming through Puget Sound, visiting salmon spawning in our local streams, and hiking in the majestic forests of the Pacific Northwest.

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. Our overarching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas recover from the threat of extinction.

Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 50 million people each year. The Whale Trail is currently adding new sites along the west coast, from California to British Columbia, throughout the southern resident orcas’ range and beyond.

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. Our BC team is led by the the BC Cetacean Sighting Network. Many members of the Whale Trail teams met when they worked together to return Springer, the orphaned orca, to her pod.

The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, headquartered in West Seattle. Join us!

Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula) is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual craving for excitement and fame immediately sets them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.

WSHS’s Drama Club “Bonnie & Clyde” @ West Seattle High School

Bonnie & Clyde

Mar 30, 31, April 1, 5, 6, 7. There will be a special performance on April 1st to raise funds for musical rights, costumes, props and building supplies.

Join us for a thrilling musical with a non-traditional score combining blues, gospel and rockabilly music. At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde, from the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula) is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. When Bonnie and Clyde meet, their mutual craving for excitement and fame immediately sets them on a mission to chase their dreams. Their bold and reckless behavior turns the young lovers’ thrilling adventure into a downward spiral, putting themselves and their loved ones in trouble with the law. Forced to stay on the run, the lovers resort to robbery and murder to survive. As the infamous duo’s fame grows bigger, their inevitable end draws nearer.

Tickets are $10 with reservation, $15 at the door.

Green Wall installation ceremony @ South Park Library
Apr 8 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Community, non-profits, and government are collaborating to take action on community and health priorities through an innovative green solution located at the South Park Branch of The Seattle Public Library (8604 8th Ave S, 98108).

To reduce the impact of air pollution, the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/Technical Advisory Group (DRCC/TAG), and Just Health Action (JHA) are partnering with the South Park Branch to install 7 artistic green wall panels, each 3 feet wide by 5 feet tall, creating a free standing vegetated trellis system.

When fully grown in, these panels of green leaves will filter the particulates passing through it and absorb air pollution. In addition, these climbing vines and native plants will provide habitat and beautify areas while simultaneously providing water quality benefits.

The historically industrial neighborhood in the South end of Seattle has long dealt with environmental hazards and health issues stemming from misuse by industry. Zip Code 98108, home to the Duwamish Valley, has the worst air pollution in the city of Seattle and the neighborhoods of South Park and Georgetown include the highest hospitalization rates for childhood asthma, as highlighted in the Cumulative Health Impacts Analysis published by JHA and DRCC/TAG in 2013.

The Duwamish Valley community continually identifies addressing air pollution as a top health priority. Based on this, DRCC/TAG, JHA, project partners, and the community worked together to gather information on the sources of air pollution and take action to reduce residents’ exposure to air pollution through the Duwamish Community Action for Clean Air project, funded by the U.S. EPA Environmental Justice Cooperative Problem Solving Agreement (EJCPSA).

Installation and Inauguration Day!

On Saturday, April 8th, at 11 am the community and others are invited to our installation ceremony. The Duwamish Valley Youth Corps will be on site planting climbing vines and spreading mulch. The Youth Corps have been learning about air pollution and taking action in the community to reduce it, including planting trees, building and distributing home air filters, and educating community members.

The landscape architect, project planner and project manager will provide information on the renovation project and gather community input on play features and amenities. The play area is south of the community center near the tennis courts. This is an all-ages event with light snacks and children’s activities. We encourage all to attend and participate by providing input on the best play area design option for the High Point neighborhood.

This project will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements, and improve safety and other features at the park. Please participate in a survey for the project.

The Seattle Park District provided the funding for this play area improvement project. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.

‘Why Art Matters’ Panel @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Councilmember Lisa Herbold (District 1, West Seattle & South Park) will participate in a discussion Wednesday evening about the role of public investments in the arts and the health of our community, plus the current landscape of dedicated arts funding. The panel, ‘Why Art Matters’ is co-sponsored by KUOW FM, the Office of Arts and Culture, and Councilmember Herbold and will include representatives from the Seattle Arts Commission, Seattle Symphony and Arts Corps.

WHAT:  ‘Why Art Matters’ panel with break-out sessions focusing on specific issues and action steps

WHEN: Wednesday, April 12
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

WHERE: Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
4408 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106

WHO:
Councilmember Lisa Herbold
Marcie Sillman, KUOW
Vivian Phillips, Seattle Arts Commission
Simon Woods, Seattle Symphony
James Miles, Executive Director of Arts Corps.

Now more than ever, the arts play an important role in defining our identity and leading the way for racial equity. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) are vital for our community’s well-being.

The 2018 federal budget released by Donald Trump proposes elimination of federal support for the NEA and CPB. A full federal budget proposal is expected in May, and will inspire a myriad questions about how to help numerous groups remain solvent continue this important work, as well as the larger question of what the elimination of government-sponsored cultural agencies communicates to Americans and the rest of the world.

Please NOTE: The event is FREE and guests are invited to RSVP online and in advance

Apr 15 @ 7:00 pm – 10:45 pm

Adults who loved or hated their high school proms have an opportunity to re-do them at Second Chance Prom on Saturday, April 15th, at 7 pm at the West Seattle Golf Club. The event benefits The Ruby Room, an organization that collects donated dresses and accessories for girls who otherwise can’t afford them to be able to attend their own prom.

Throughout the year, the Ruby Room collects donated dresses, jewelry and shoes to give to high school girls shopping for “prom season” in the spring. This organization provides its clients with a personal shopper to make sure their shopping experience is fun and successful. Founder Nyla Bitterman believes “everyone should be able attend their high school events, regardless of their ability to pay.” She has expressed this through the Ruby Room since its beginning in 2002.

Open to those 21 years and older, guests will travel “Back to the 90’s” through the music and bright décor. A raffle to win the crown of prom king or queen is held as one way to benefit the Ruby Room. The winners will receive a sash, crown and trophy. A DJ will be spinning throwback 90’s jams and will be taking requests. Photographers will have a booth to capture that fun prom pose to remember the night.

The Ruby Room will accept donations of dresses and accessories in good condition at the event. Tickets are $30 per person or $50 per couple, which will go to the Ruby Room to help pay for rent, utility costs and extra inventory as needed. Tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/second-chance-prom-tickets-31400026324?aff=es2.
