The additional performances are scheduled for 7:30pm each evening, Tickets for the added performances can be purchased immediately at artswest.org.

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.

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.”

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.

(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.)

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.”

Neighborhood Preschool’s 10th anniversary
Jun 10 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

ON Saturday, June 10, Neighborhood Preschool will be celebrating 10 years of nurturing and educating 3-5 year olds in West Seattle. In 2007, after years of working in many other child education capacities, Stephanie Thiele realized her dream of creating a small, intimate space that fostered creative learning. Her goal since then has been to help both children and parents gently transition from the early years at home to the larger world of elementary school, while at the same time cultivating curiosity and imagination.

Trained in early childhood and elementary education, Stephanie also sits on the board of Directors for the West Seattle Preschool Association and is involved throughout the community. Known for her creative, engaging, and nurturing approach, she’s seen whole sibling groups come through her doors over the years. She remains committed to offering a smaller more personal option for preschoolers, with no more than an 8 to 1 teacher-student ratio.

All those who love and appreciate Miss Stephanie and the work she does with West Seattle kids, are invited to drop by the Neighborhood Preschool June 10th between 1-4 pm.
The address is: 6902 35th Ave SW, Seattle
or if you have further questions feel free to call: 206-852-1542.

Northwest Firelight Chorale concert @ Fauntleroy Church
Jun 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The Northwest Firelight Chorale brings a soulful performance to West Seattle for the first time

They sing, they dance (a special brand of “choralography”), and they have a meaningful mission — to invite the opening of people’s hearts to love and healing through inspired rehearsals and performances of soul-stirring music. The Northwest Firelight Chorale, directed by professional opera singer Deeji Killian, is bringing their newest program “Africa, a Legacy of Song” to the Fauntleroy Church on Saturday, June 10, at 7:30 pm. This is a wide-ranging repertoire — enticing rhythms of songs sung in native African languages, infectious melodies, haunting spirituals, joyful gospel, jazz and hip-hop. It’s designed to lift up and transport their audiences — something the group feels is much needed in these contentious times.

The Northwest Firelight Chorale got its start 12 years ago as a small, mostly a cappella Northend group. Known for their excellent vocal technique and expressive, joyous singing, the group has steadily gained local recognition, members and audience, becoming an anchor group for the bi-annual Greater Seattle Choral Consortium showcase “Seattle Sings,” performing at Folklife 2016, and opening for and performing with Irish tenor Emmet Cahill on the Seattle stop of his 2017 U.S. tour. Their most meaningful concerts, however, are the ones at senior residences like the Hearthstone, Skyline, Aljoya and Ida Culver at least twice for each of their three season programs. The group loves sharing the positive energy of song and storytelling with the residents, since they can see first-hand the memorable impact it can have. The 50-person group is now comprised of singers from Tacoma, Bellevue, and throughout Seattle – but the most vocal are the six West Seattle residents who lobbied hard to have a concert in their own neighborhood! They hope the WSB audience will join them on June 10th.

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.

Lincoln Park Nature Walk: Edible and Medicinal Plants @ Lincoln Park @ South Parking Lot
Jun 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Edible and Medicinal Plants of Lincoln Park
Sunday, June 11th, 3-5pm
Space is limited to 15.
From Jonathan Hover:

Edible and Medicinal Plants of Lincoln Park
Sunday, June 11th, 3-5pm
**We’ll meet at the parking lot at the south end of the park at 3pm**

Lincoln Park offers a fun variety of forest, shoreline, and metropolitan plants friends. Plants we’ll see include Huckleberries, Thimbleberries, False Solomon’s Seal, St. John’s Wort, Oregon Grape, Indian Plum, and many more!

We’ll talk about how to identify, ethically gather, prepare, and use the medicinal plants we’ll encounter. I provide handouts with the common and scientific names, preparations, and uses of the most of the plants we’ll see, as well as a glossary of herbal terms I’ll be using, and botanical illustrations describing leaf shapes and types, and flower parts and types for context.

Make sure to bring something to write with, comfortable shoes, and water!

I grew up in southeast Seattle, and have always had a passion for the natural world. I attended the Intro to Western Herbalism program at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in Boulder, Co. from 1999-2000, and received a certificate in Advanced Herbalism from the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, Co. in 2003. I’ve studied the uses of northwest native plants for the last 15 years, and have led plant walks professionally on Orcas Island, Seattle, and the Cascades. I have found that being able to identify and know the uses of the plants around me has changed the way I view the world, giving me a deeper sense of connection with this beautiful place we live, and I love to share that with others.

I want my walks to be accessible and affordable to all who are interested. $15 sliding scale, open to trades, nobody refused for lack of money, children 13 and under free. The event will be limited to 15 people. You can reserve a spot through my paypal. Pay any amount and comment on how many spots you’d like, or email me at evergreenplantwalks@gmail to request a spot or with any questions.

Her books have been nominated for twelve state children’s choice awards and been recognized by the Children’s Book Council, Oprah’s Book Club, and Kirkus Reviews (Best Children’s Books of the Year). Her latest is Cleo Edison Oliver in Persuasion Power about an irresistible 10-year-old entrepreneur. Cleo is one of ten books in Seattle Public Library’s 2017 Global Reading Challenge. Sundee lives in Renton.

Kazu Kibuishi is the writer and artist of the New York Times bestselling AMULET graphic novel series, published by Scholastic. He is also the editor/art director/cover artist of the EXPLORER and FLIGHT Comic Anthologies, and is the cover illustrator of the Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Edition paperbacks from Scholastic. His debut graphic novel, Daisy Kutter: The Last Train, won a YALSA Best Books for Young Adults Award. Born in Tokyo, Japan, Kazu moved to the U.S. with his mother and brother when he was a child. He graduated from Film Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2000, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. He currently works as a full-time graphic novelist. Kazu lives near Seattle, Washington with his wife and two children.

Every third Wednesday at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to guided writing explorations. Each month we also host a community member to share his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E.

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.

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.

Summer Solstice Sunset Watch 2017 @ Solstice Park
Jun 20 @ 8:45 pm

It’s time for the 33rd seasonal sunset watch!
This is also my last currently-scheduled event before the solar eclipse in August! Come and I’ll give tips and resources on safely observing the eclipse from Seattle, as well as a sites in Oregon. I’ve got more resources than anyone (practically) on safe observing for kids aged 18-months to 6 years, so bring the kiddos.
Tuesday, June 20 at 9:00pm (so come at 8:45pm)
Actual sunset is supposed to be at 9:11pm, but we have noticed that the Sun sets about 10 minutes earlier than the USNO says, because of the horizon altitude.
When: The solstice moment is Tuesday, June 20 at 9:24pm so maybe we’ll stick around and celebrate that too, for once!
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. (Please do leash your dogs as we usually have a good number of people, kids, and other dogs around.)
Come watch the sunset at Solstice Park in West Seattle. I’ll be there even if it is cloudy because sometimes the Sun peeks through just as it begins to set.
Everyone is welcome, see you there!

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 22 @ 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.”

The Enhancing Cetacean Habitat and Observation (ECHO) Program is a Vancouver Fraser Port Authority-led initiative aimed at better understanding and managing the impact of shipping activities on at-risk whales throughout the Salish Sea.

Krista Trounce, the ECHO Program Project Manager, will present how the ECHO Program is working with national and international collaborators to develop mitigation measures that will lead to a quantifiable reduction in potential threats to whales as a result of shipping activities.

Learn about the projects the ECHO Program has completed and is currently working on: Strait of Georgia Underwater Listening Station to measure vessel noise levels, regional monitoring of ambient noise in the Salish Sea, a Mariner’s Guide to Whales in the Pacific Northwest, large whale strike risk assessment, a trial slowdown of commercial vessels, and others.

Krista will speak to the ECHO Program long term goals, and how the Salish Sea will benefit from their research and initiatives.

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.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 23 @ 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.”
