Apr 16 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

From the North Delridge Neighborhood Council:

Come help at the Brandon St Greenspace the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10 am–2 pm. We have made a huge dent in the ivy around the Legacy Trail. Thanks to all of you who have helped.

But wait! There is a lot more Ivy and Blackberry to remove. Come down and be part of the community that cares for Longfellow creek and the Legacytrail. We will have plenty of Mulch and Cardboard to go around.

Getting to the site is easy. Get on Delridge Way SW. Turn West on Brandon St. Go two blocks and park on 26th Ave SW. Walk down Brandon 1/2 block and look for the gateways on the south.

Duwamish Alive! Restoration and Cleanup event @ T-107 Park
Apr 16 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm


On April 16, 10am to 2pm, join Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/TAG, EarthCorps Sound Stewards, and Puget Soundkeeper as we keep important habitat and public access space along the Duwamish River safe and beautiful!

Volunteer work will be happening on land and on the water! And as a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to do both! Terminal 107 or T-107 Park, managed by the Port of Seattle, is an important historical site originally built as a construction site for a marine terminal that overlooks the original bends of the Duwamish River and serves as a place where salmon and other wildlife can rest, feed, and escape from predators. On land, volunteers will work with Sound Stewards and DRCC/TAG to weed, mulch, pick up litter and keep this site healthy and vital! On the water, join Puget Soundkeeper and Alki Kayak Tours in a kayak to help remove litter from the banks of our river. The kayaks will launch from the T-107 boat launch. (*Minimum age for kayaks is 13 years old)

We usually get between 75 and 115 people. I give out cash prizes to the top 3 teams and bottles of champagne for the bottom three teams.

The Whale Trail Speaker Series: Bruce Mate ‘How We Save Whales from Space’ @ The Hall at Fauntleroy
Apr 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The 2016 Spring Orca Talk hosted by The Whale Trail:

“How We Save Whales from Space”
Presentation by Bruce Mate
When: Thursday April 21, 7 PM – 8:30
–Doors open 6:15
Where: Hall at Fauntleroy
Cost: $10, $5 Kids under 12
Advance tickets: brownpapertickets.com

Join us for this rare Seattle appearance by renowned whale researcher Bruce Mate. Bruce will demonstrate how his teams use satellite-monitored radio tags to identify critical habitats and migration routes of endangered whales to protect them. His talk will focus on western and ENP gray whales, right whales, and contemporary issues for blue whales during the last few years of warm water as examples.

Bruce Mate is the Director and Endowed Chair of the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State University, and founder of Oregon’s Whale Watching Spoken Here program.

Bruce’s talk is hosted by The Whale Trail, and co-sponsored by Seal Sitters and the American Cetacean Society, Puget Sound Chapter. Celebrate Earth Day by learning about whales!

About the Speaker
Bruce Mate is a leader in the development of satellite-monitored radio telemetry for marine mammals. Using this technique, he has tagged and tracked manatees, pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins, white-sided dolphins, gray whales, right whales, bowhead whales, humpback whales, sperm whales, fin whales and blue whales. This work has led to the discovery of previously unknown migration routes and seasonal distributions (wintering and summering areas), as well as descriptions of diving behavior to better understand feeding effort.

His research primarily focuses on endangered whale species whose distributions, movements, and critical habitats (for feeding, breeding, and migration) are unknown for much of the year. Decision makers use this valuable information to manage human activities that may jeopardize the recovery of endangered whale populations, such as moving shipping lanes for North Atlantic right whales.

In 2010 and 2011, Bruce Mate’s team used satellite telemetry to track three critically endangered western gray whales from their feeding grounds in Russia to join the eastern Pacific gray whale migration to Baja California. The findings shed new light on the interactions of these populations, and have profound implications for their long-term management and conservation.

About The Whale Trail
The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites along the west coast where the public can 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 conserve, protect and recover the southern resident orcas – J, K and L pods.

From 16 inaugural sites in Washington state, there are now more than 60, from California to British Columbia. Through our sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 30 million people each year.

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. We’re working with planning teams in BC led by the BC Cetacean Sighting Network, and in Oregon led by the Oregon Marine Reserves Partnership. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State. Join us!

Rethink Reuse Art Installation @ Alki Beach
Apr 22 @ 8:00 am – 7:00 pm

Value Village wants you, your family, kids and friends to join them at Alki Beach for an installation that encourages everyone to take action to prevent landfills from becoming laundry piles.

What: An interactive installation using thousands of pieces of used clothing to represent the amount of clothing that ends up in the landfill, instead of being reused and recycled.

When: Friday, April 22
8:00 am–7:00 pm

Where: Alki Beach, 59th Ave SW & Alki Ave (across from Spud’s)

On April 22, Earth Day, Savers/Value Village, the global thrift store chain, is hosting an interactive art installation at Alki Beach that asks people to consider their clothing footprint and rethink reuse.

Every year, North Americans send 10.5 million tons of clothing to landfills, 95 percent of which could have been recycled or reused. This installation is made from thousands of pieces of used clothing and represents the impact your decisions about how to dispose of used clothing have on the environment. This visually arresting wake-up call asks people to rethink reuse—spare landfills and resources by donating your used goods/ buying stuff that lasts/ buying used clothing.

As a purpose-driven thrift store chain focused on reuse, Savers/ValueVillage kept nearly 650 million pounds of reusable items out of landfills last year—including more than 45 million pounds of clothing, textiles and other items from local landfills in Washington state. https://www.savers.com/rethinkreuse

BELIEVE IT: Many of our WS neighbors are experiencing crisis- homelessness, hunger, gentrification, drug addiction, crime and more. How will we support our most vulnerable populations?

We’ll host a public discussion at the Admiral Bird on Saturday April 23rd, 6-8 pm to hear those living through real struggle and how they deal with crisis.

Join Sustainable West Seattle in listening to stories of coming together, and pooling resources to survive economic crisis.. Learn about the resource and time sharing projects West Seattle is using to build resilience in our community.

GUESTS:

* Spanish performer, playwright and activist ANTONIO DELGADO shares his experiences as part of the 15 million-strong Spanish movement known as Podemos.
* We’ll also hear the struggles faced by the local West Seattle homeless population directly from those living it.
* West Seattle Time Bank
* West Seattle Tool Library
* Community Orchard of West Seattle

Please come by and join the discussion!

MORE INFO:
Since 2008, working people in Spain have been experiencing an impoverishment of the middle class. A slow elimination of safety nets and social services, lay-offs of public employees, wide-scale evictions, homelessness while homes stand empty, and a rising cost of living without a rise in wage. Despite media propaganda, armed forces at public protests and failed reforms, popular resistance movements in Spain have endured and adapted from the 15 Million people movement called Indignados to form a third party, Podemos, to challenge the Spanish two-party system.

Community Parent Education Night @ Explorer West Middle School
Apr 25 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Coming up at Explorer West Middle School (WSB sponsor):

Join us on Monday, April 25, 2016 for our Community Parent Education Night where we will be discussing teen anxiety and its affect on the daily lives of middle school students and their families.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns for children and adults, affecting upwards of 20% of children and adolescents over the lifespan. Sadly, untreated anxiety can lead to depression, missed opportunities in career and relationships, increased substance use, and a decreased quality of life.

Parents play an essential role in helping their child or teen manage anxiety. Do you have questions about your child’s level of anxiety when it comes to school, homework, or family and social situations? Do you need new strategies to help with these challenges at home or school?

Anxiety can be managed and our two experts on teen anxiety help us understand how anxiety works, what’s normal and what’s not, and what you need to know.

Our speakers, Peter Weiss and Carolyn Carlson, are licensed mental health practitioners. This presentation and discussion will cover trends and types of teen anxiety, normal anxiety vs. clinically problematic, when to consider therapy, dealing with resistance to therapy, and supporting parents and families of teens experiencing anxiety.

This event is free and open to all families!

Adults only please, no children.

About the Murray CSO Control Project
King County is building the Murray facility to keep polluted water out of the Puget Sound. During big storms, King County’s sewer pipes can fill up. When this happens, sewage and stormwater must be released directly into the Puget Sound. The Murray tank will store the sewage and water until it can be cleaned at the treatment plant in Magnolia.

Crews are now conducting mechanical and electrical work inside the facility and have started to backfill soil behind the building.

Healthy Kids Day 2016 at the West Seattle Y @ West Seattle YMCA
Apr 30 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Healthy Kids Day at the West Seattle YMCA!

The West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) is inviting all kids and parents to for a free community open house on Saturday, April 30 – Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids and families. This year marks the 25th annual Healthy Kids Day®, and the goal is to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active.

The first 100 kids receive a free t-shirt and from 10:00 am–1:00 pm the event will feature fun family activities like: a climbing wall, a family ZUMBA® class, free bicycle helmets and fittings for the first 200 kids, healthy drinks from Chaco Canyon and Smith Brothers Farms, gaga ball, pool relays and water safety fun.

New for this year is a branch-wide scavenger hunt with the chance to win great prizes. Learn more and sign up here >> http://ymcahkd.org/

YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at over 1,300 Ys across the country by over 1.2 million participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits that they continue all year long. During out-of-school time, kids can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during down time than the school year. The Y hopes to focus on wowing them with their potential and make this their best year ever by staying active and learning.

DRAWTASTIC Festival @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 30 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

DRAWTASTIC Organizer Tony White has joined the WSB sponsor team to get the word out – here’s his announcement:

Pencil April 30th into your diary for Seattle’s most ‘drawsome’ festival of Drawing & Animation, at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle! Entry is FREE to the festival, although there is a small charge for the speaker presentations to cover basic costs. The event runs from 11:30 am until 5 pm on Saturday, April 30th.

DRAWTASTIC (WSB sponsor) is the brainchild of British award-winning animator, author and educator, Tony White. With the unceasing rush to modern technology in this digital world it is easy to devalue the most wonderful hardware we have ~ the humble pencil!

Although the creative world fully embraces every technological resource available to it these days, it is almost certain that every idea either begins with pencil sketch, or as a result of years of drawing practice, or even through a full-time application of this most wonderful piece of hardware ~ which even comes with its own rubber ‘undo’ button at the other end!

White therefore is seeking to put the pencil back on its pedestal where it belongs. DRAWTASTIC is a ‘Pencil-fest’ that embraces all the artistic worlds that the pencil touches. Speakers include a top Simpsons animator from LA, an Australian living in New York who has made his own drawn movie and who is flying in to present it for its Seattle premiere, a caricaturist who is acknowledged as the very best the industry offers, and a respected game industry professional who acknowledges like everyone else how the pencil is so fundamentally important to their work.

Additional DRAWTASTIC events include the screening of 62 animated shorts from around the world ~ all vying for a prestigious ‘Golden Pencil Award’ ~ together with a vendor hall where indie work is shown and sold. Other drawing-based events will take place, including a ‘how to caricature’ session and ‘how to draw an animated flipbook.’ White himself will reflect the huge interest in drawing that he’s found through his online ‘Animator’s Sketchclub’ ~ currently possessing over 6,000 worldwide members ~ by hosting his own drawing for animation ‘Happy Hour.’

Entry is FREE to the festival, although there is a small charge for the speaker presentations to cover basic costs. The event runs from 11:30 am until 5 pm on Saturday, April 30th, with a ‘Meet ‘n Greet’ get-together afterward ~ where speakers, vendors and visitors can all meet and chat (presumably about the pencil) in a friendly and relaxed manner. White hopes that the event will once and for all prove the maxim that… ‘Pencils are Drawsome’!

Local Author Jack Lewis Reads ‘Head Check’ @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Apr 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Author Jack Lewis Reads at Westwood Village Barnes & Noble Saturday, April 30 at 4 pm.

Local author Jack Lewis will be reading from his book ‘Head Check, What it Feels Like to Ride Motorcycles’ at the Westwood Village Barnes & Noble on Saturday, April 30 at 4 pm.

Head Check invites readers to take in the color and detail of a rider’s life vividly realized, richly observed, and transcendently described.

During his tenure at Motorcyclist magazine, Jack Lewis has touched readers around the world not only through his incandescent prose riffs and self-effacing humor, but also through a consistent and deeply felt humanity.

This collection of magazine features and columns alongside personally published web pieces and new material may be populated by motorcycles, but it centers around the varied experiences of riders (and their tolerant keepers) in a world where risk is a bet you make with yourself for purposes that must always transcend mere recreation.

More Information available at http://litsam.com/jack-lewis-returns-to-seattle/.

Ronny Cox and friends perform @ Kenyon Hall
May 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We’re delighted to welcome back the remarkable artist Ronny Cox to Kenyon Hall. Ronny has been featured in countless movies and television shows. Remembered best as the moral-minded and ill-fated Drew who instigates the legendary “Dueling Banjos” sequence with a mountain boy in Deliverance (1972), he was Captain Jellico in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the bad guy in Robocop.

We can all name popular actors who play music as a sideline. Ronny Cox is not one of those actors. When you hear him sing the songs he’s written—deeply personal songs—you don’t think, “There’s an actor who also sings.” You forget that familiar face and focus on the poetry that lays his life bare, that draws his audience inexorably in, so that you feel what he’s feeling.

Ronny will be accompanied by Chip Dolan on piano and vocals, and T. Bruce Bowers on fiddle, mandolin and vocals. They’re exquisite ensemble players, and as a result, the trio has the feel of old friends who happen to be world-class musicians, playing the music they love.

Tickets for Ronny Cox and Friends are $20 general and $18 seniors and students. No table seats for this performance. For more information, please visit ronnycox.com.

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

Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him.

Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller

April 28 – May 29, 2016

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.
