Lowman Beach seawall open house @ The Hall at Fauntleroy
May 31 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

We Need to Hear from You!

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to learn about the future of the Lowman Beach Park seawall. Please join us at the upcoming Open House. Lowman Beach Park is located at 7017 Beach Dr. SW, just north of Lincoln Park.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall is failing and needs to be removed or replaced. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over towards the water. It is Seattle Parks and Recreation’s goal to remove the remaining seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s.

We hired Environmental Science Associates (ESA) as a design consultant to undertake a feasibility study to look at options for removing the seawall, taking into consideration both the habitat benefits of the seawall removal and the coastal engineering ramifications of that seawall removal. Given the design constraints of the project, it is likely that the existing tennis court will remain in place. At this meeting we will present our background, analysis of the coastal processes (wind, waves, tides, sediment transport/littoral drift) and design options to gather community input.

Wed, May 31, 2017
Location: Hall at Fauntleroy
9131 California Ave SW
6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m.

For questions about the project or if you need an interpreter or accommodations please contact:

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.

Book talk: Author Claudia Rowe and ‘The Spider and the Fly’ @ Barnes & Noble
Jun 2 @ 5:00 pm

Words, Writers & West Seattle’ presents a talk by local author Claudia Rowe on her book,The Spider and the Fly: a Reporter, a Serial Killer and the Meaning of Murder” at Barnes & Noble bookstore.

West Seattle author and Seattle Times’ staff writer, Claudia Rowe shares her work of literary true crime in a combination of memoir and psychological suspense. The Spider and the Fly focuses on Rowe as a young journalist navigating her unusual connection with a convicted serial killer and exploring the community from which he emerged, including the reasons that the disappearances of his female victims went ignored for so long

“The Spider and the Fly” encompasses Rowe’s search to understand cruelty and the compromises inherent to journalism.   A print journalist for more than two decades, Rowe looks at the correspondence she initiated as a much younger reporter with a multiple murderer and the ways relationships forever change our lives.

This free book-talk will be the 43rd 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, June 2nd, 2017, at Barnes & Noble/ Westwood Village.

A New York City native, Claudia discovered she was happier living in the country after attending college in Vermont. The story at the heart of The Spider and the Fly landed in her lap while she was living in New York’s Hudson Valley region. She had been stringing for The New York Times, covering everything from cult-esque religious settlements to new restaurants, when she learned about women who’d been “missing” — some of them for two years. The winner of numerous national journalism awards, Rowe lives in West Seattle and currently covers education for The Seattle Times.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next First Friday book-talk is scheduled for July 7th and will feature Sonja and Jeff Anderson and their book, Mount Rainier’s Historic Inns and Lodges (May, 2017). 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.

We will also explore some benefits of food forests (ex. less maintenance, beneficial wildlife habitat). We will wrap up with some hands-on plant guild design and planting time.

Helpful resources will be shared with you to aid you in successfully growing your own urban/suburban food forest!

Light snacks and refreshments provided. Feel free to bring some to share!

Suggested Donation: $10 – $25. Please choose an amount to pay on the sliding scale that you feel is equitable. This rate helps cover costs while offering a discount for those that need it. No one turned away who are unable to pay.

Notebook, Pencil/Pen

Jackie Cramer is a permaculture designer, landscaper and educator. She has worked the land for over twenty years as farmer, planner, and community organizer.

National Trails Day: West Duwamish Greenbelt hikes @ West Duwamish Greenbelt
Jun 3 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Hike developed and undeveloped trails of the West Duwamish Greenbelt, the largest urban forest in Seattle on a ridge above the Duwamish RIver. Members of the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group and Nature Consortium will be on hand to guide hikers and provide information on the history and reforestation of the greenbelt. The first half of the trail is a constructed gravel trail. The second half is muddier and less developed. There are a few ups and downs and a bit of scrambling but only modest elevation changes, suitable for most ages with appropriate footwear. The trail makes a loop from the south end of the campus of South Seattle College, paralleling the campus in the greenbelt, to the Chinese Garden and Arboretum at the north end of campus, returning to the start along the campus and 16th Ave. SW.

More details can be found here.

Guided hikes are at 10 am and noon – meet at 12th SW and SW Holly.

Workshop on Supporting Local Immigrants and Refugees @ Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation
Jun 3 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Pathways and Networks for Justice Workshop on Supporting Local Immigrants and Refugees

Please join us! Presentations will be provided by the following workshop partners: ACLU, Casa Latina, OneAmerica, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Southwest Youth and Family Services

When: Saturday June 3rd from 10:00-1:00PM
Where: 7141 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98136 (Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation, in the basement meeting hall)
Free registration at Brown Paper Tickets (please register for accurate participant count).

Summary of workshop:
The Trump Administration has taken multiple steps to target the immigrant and refugee members of our community, including: attempts to institute a Muslim Ban, denying federal funds to Sanctuary Cities, racist speech resulting in large increases in hate crimes, unjust deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to name a few. Many in our Greater Seattle community want to take action to help local immigrants and refugees; this workshop is designed to provide specifics on how to help.

This two-part workshop will: 1) provide a basic foundation for the current state of affairs for immigrants in the United States today, broken into four key areas, and 2) provide opportunities for community members and activists to learn about various organizations that are already mobilized to serve our immigrant neighbors within these four key areas (listed below).

Four key pathways to help local immigrants and refugees:
Path 1: Current Legislative Framework – the ACLU will provide an update on Trump’s attacks, including specifics as to how these proposed new laws and policies impact local immigrants, as well as ways we can fight back and advocate for policies reflecting a freedom/sanctuary community.

Path 2: Encountering Law Enforcement – it’s likely not a matter of “if” but “when” Federal law enforcement will amplify their actions against local immigrants. Casa Latina will discuss actions, strategies and tactics that are being developed to counter.

Path 3: Responding to Prejudice – Trump has unleashed much more free expression of prejudice, hatred and resentment through tactics of creating fear and encouraging blame against minorities. New laws and policies are being crafted that are rooted in racism and prejudice. OneAmerica will provide an overview of this dynamic and its impact on our communities. In addition, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will provide a talk on the rise of Islamophobia.

Path 4: Meeting Basic Needs – Southwest Youth and Family Services will provide a talk on the most pressing needs for newly arrived immigrant families and their work around immigrant and refugee youth.

Additional immigrant/refugee support organizations invited to attend:Americans for Refugees and Immigrants; East African Community Services; El Centro de la Raza; Jewish Family Service; Northwest Immigrant Rights Project; Northwest Justice Project; Horn of Africa Services (HOAS); Open Doors for Multicultural Families; Refugee Woman’s Alliance; St. James Immigrant Assistance; Washington Community Action Network (CAN); White Center Community Development Association; World Relief Seattle.

Partnering organizations to date include:
ACLU
Admiral Congregational Church
Casa Latina
Communities Rising!
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
Hate Free Delridge

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.

It’s an informal setting for folks to discuss and learn from their peers while hanging out in a casual environment. Here you can meet elected officials, candidates and other like-minded folks to share the bond of common ground.

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.”

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.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 10 @ 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.”

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

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.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 11 @ 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.”

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.

Favorite Poem and Summer Reading Table by Jenny Cole, Co-Owner of Page 2 Books

Join WordsWest on June 14, 2017, 6pm, for a Kids’ Night of Invention and Adventure with nationally renowned Scholastic authors Sundee T. Frazier (Cleo Edison Oliver) and Kazu Kibuishi (AMULET graphic novel series). Jenny Cole of Burien’s Page 2 Books will share a Favorite Poem and host a Summer Reading Table. Yummy treats will be served! This evening is partially funded by Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.

Sundee T. Frazier is an ALA Coretta Scott King Award winner for Brendan Buckley’s Universe and Everything in It. Her heartfelt, entertaining stories address subjects close to her heart: ethnic identity, growing up in interracial families, and multi-generational dynamics. 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.
