Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 16 all-day

(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.

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 Pacific Northwest Mahonia Evaluation Project is hosting its next work party on Saturday, June 16, 10 am to 12 noon. To participate, meet at the Mahonia Research Plot, located at the south end of the South Seattle College campus.

This is a unique opportunity to participate in ‘citizen science,’ observe the growth of over 90 kinds of Mahonia, and work with some of the region’s top horticulturists. While most people know Mahonia as “Oregon Grape,” the genus includes about 100 species native to eastern Asia and western North America. We are evaluating species and cultivars that show tremendous landscape potential, many which are currently not available in PNW nurseries. This research is sponsored by South Seattle College and funded by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

For 2018, we will hold volunteer work parties on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month, from 10 am-noon. Activities vary with the season, but typically include weeding, mulching, and related plant stewardship. Snacks and refreshments are provided, and each session includes a tour of the research plot.

For more information about the Pacific Northwest Mahonia Evaluation Project, click here or send your questions to mahoniaseattle@gmail.com. To find our location and driving directions, click here. And when you’re ready, please sign up for any of our community work parties. It’s easy to sign up—just click here.

Our next work party is on Saturday, June 16, from 10 am to noon.

Looking forward to seeing you among the Mahonia.

Cheers!

DNDA’s Let’s Talk Race Series 2018‎: Nurturing the Environment and Food Access Workshop. Coming up on June 16th, 1–6 pm. Register in advance at tinyurl.com/RaceSeries5

What would it look like to have equitable access to food that nourishes our bodies and nourishes the land? Join us at Camp Long to talk about race in the context of Nurturing the Environment and Food Access. This outdoor workshop will create space for community members to engage in courageous conversations that rely on our vulnerability rather than on instant resolutions. This event will explore how our food systems are built upon the racial injustices of slavery, and how environmental protection is inseparable from indigenous sovereignty. By exposing histories of white supremacy and colonialism in the United States, we can reveal their impacts today. Through timelines, open dialogue, and circle practice, participants will share stories of food traditions and connections to land that build bridges across difference and promote healing.

With facilitators Nat Mengist and Lucia Santos

West Seattle Community Orchestra with Young People’s Symphony Orchestra @ Meany Hall
Jun 17 @ 7:00 pm

World Projects presents the Young People’s Symphony Orchestra (California) with special guests, the West Seattle Community Orchestra, at Meany Hall for the Performing Arts, University of Washington, Sunday, June 17, 2018. The concert begins at 7 pm and includes YPSO’s performance of Dvorak’s Carnival Overture,

Cavaterra’s The Peninsula: Overture and The Path of History from the Monterey Suite, and Stravinsky’s passionate The Firebird Suite. It’s exhilarating for young musicians to perform for an audience; you, too, can experience that exhilaration, and contribute to it as an appreciative audience member.

The current YPSO includes 90 accomplished musicians aged 12 to 20. The Seattle concert is part of a Pacific Northwest tour by the orchestra that includes performances in Victoria and Vancouver, BC.

Founded in 1936 in Berkeley, California, YPSO is the oldest independent youth orchestra in California, and the second oldest in the nation. For more than 80 years,

YPSO has developed the musical talents and skills of myriad students representing 28 cities and 6 counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

With a mission to guide young musicians to achieve excellence within an orchestral setting, YPSO provides an educational environment that fosters accomplishment,

serves as a cultural resource for the community, and builds future audiences by instilling a passion for music. Young people are encouraged to become exemplary musicians, and young musicians to become exemplary people. Today, many YPSO alumni are internationally distinguished musicians and prominent community members.

Mr. David Ramadanoff is currently in his 30th season as Music Director/Conductor with the orchestra. He leads a team of master teachers who provide weekly specialized sectional coaching. Because of YPSO’s intensive coaching and Mr. Ramadanoff’s background in orchestra building, the YPSO has a reputation as an outstanding youth ensemble throughout California and beyond: YPSO has performed in world-class venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and the Dvorak Hall of the Rudolfinum, in Prague, Czech Republic.

World Projects is delighted to welcome the West Seattle Community Orchestra to kick off the first half of the concert. Founded in 2003, WSCO welcomes musicians of all ages and abilities and is committed to community access and involvement in music making through mixed-age ensembles, instruction, mentoring, quality public performances, and the cultivation of a lifelong delight and participation in the power of music.

WordsWest Literary Series Presents
Kids’ Night – Summer Reading! with Suzanne Selfors & Dana Simpson
Favorite Poem & Summer Reading Table by Page 2 Books
6:00 pm, Wed., June 20, 2018, C & P Coffee Co., 5612 California Ave. SW

SPECIAL KIDS NIGHT 6 PM START TIME

Kick off school’s end and the start of summer reading season with acclaimed authors Suzanne Selfors and Dana Simpson in a magical evening for kids and the adults they bring with them.

Suzanne Selfors is a national best-selling author who writes for kids of all ages. She’s received five Junior Library Guild awards and earned starred reviews from Kirkus, School Library Journal, Library Media Connection and Publisher’s Weekly. The Sasquatch Escape won the WA State Book Award and was an Amazon Best Children’s Book. Suzanne’s most recent books are Wedgie and Gizmo vs. the Toof (2018) from Harper Collins/Katherine Tegan Publishers and Spirit Riding Free: Lucky and the Mustangs of Miradero (2017) from DreamWorks/Little Brown. The animated series, Spirit Riding Free, is on Netflix. Though her books can be found all over the world, Suzanne lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest where she hopes it is her destiny to write stories forever after.

Dana Claire Simpson, a native of Gig Harbor, Washington, first caught the eyes of devoted comics readers with the internet strip Ozy and Millie. After winning the 2009 Comic Strip Superstar contest, she developed the strip Phoebe and Her Unicorn (originally known as Heavenly Nostrils), which is now syndicated in over 200 newspapers worldwide. There are five book collections: Phoebe and Her Unicorn, Unicorn on a Roll, Unicorn vs. Goblins, Razzle Dazzle Unicorn, and Unicorn Crossing, and a graphic novel, The Magic Storm. Simpson’s books have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list, and have won the Washington State Book Award and the Pacific Northwest Book Award. She lives with her husband and her cat in Santa Barbara, California.

The Favorite Poem Project, a vital part of WordsWest’s monthly literary events, invites a community member to share a favorite poem and information about his or her organization. On June 20, we welcome the Summer Reading Table and a favorite poem read by Jenny Cole from indie bookstore Page 2 Books.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw, and this season’s intern/co-curator is Joannie Stangeland. Grant funding from Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and Poets & Writers, Inc. allows WordsWest to pay featured writers for their time and talent.

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body @ Admiral Church

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body
Thursdays in June (14, 21, 28)
6:30- 8:00pm at Admiral Church

— To Register, email officemgr@admiralchurch.org-

This workshop series is a basic primer on current theory about gender (distinct from sex assignment and
sexual orientation) and how it relates to everyone, whether trans*, gender fluid, cis-gender, non-binary, etc. 

We will focus on our own experiences of identifying with our gender, of having our gender expression
policed by others (and ourselves), and the church’s role in supporting human freedom around gender
identity and expression. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of
what it means to be an ally and co-conspirator with trans* and gender non-conforming folx, and the
gifts that progressive Christian theology can bring to this work.

Field Day 2018 @ South Seattle College
Jun 23 @ 12:00 pm – Jun 24 @ 10:00 am

Members of the West Seattle Amateur* Radio Club are building a temporary “radio city” at South Seattle College the weekend of June 23, 24. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.

The public is encouraged to visit us anytime between noon on Saturday and 10am on Sunday. Kids are welcome with their parents and are encouraged to try talking on our radios. Find us at South Seattle College, 6000 16th Ave SW, near Olympic Hall and near the south parking lot on campus. Look for the tents and antennas!

Again this year all our radios will be powered with solar panels. We would like to again thank Northwest Solar Rover for supporting us (http://www.nwsolarrover.com/). Joining with members of the Auxiliary Communications Service (amateurs who work with Seattle Department of Emergency Management) and the Puget Sound Repeater Group, West Seattle Amateur Radio Club members will operate radios and communicate with other hams around the world from West Seattle.

We encourage the public to think about how they will communicate, “when all else fails.” We will have information on emergency preparedness so you can be ready for major storms, pandemic disease or the major earthquake which is overdue for our region. Seattle is one of the most vulnerable places you could choose to live. It is also bursting with groups ready to help you prepare for the next event. Check out: The West Seattle Amateur Radio Club (www.westseattlearc.org), West Seattle BePrepared (http://westseattlebeprepared.org/), Seattle Emergency Management (www.seattle.gov/emergency/prepare/personal/). For general information on amateur radio visit American Radio Relay League – ARRL at www.arrl.org, the organizer of Field Day.

After superstorm Sandy on the East Coast or Harvey last year on the Gulf Coast, it became clear to many that self reliance, preparation and training should move to the top of our TO DO lists. Your local ham radio community exists to help in times of emergency. However, we probably won’t be feeding you, clothing you or helping you light your shelter at night. The West Seattle Amateur Radio Club teaches classes for amateur radio FCC licenses . The initial license is often earned after just a weekend of work with our instruction team. These licenses open up a lifetime of learning about communication and technology. Local hams also provide communication support for events like the West Seattle Grand Parade and many Seafair events.

The public is encouraged to visit our installation.

Just to move past some common misconceptions: There are more hams now than any time in history. This is not your grandfather’s amateur radio service. As a group, some of us build our own software defined radios. The only analog part of these radios is the antenna connection. We are deploying a wide area microwave network to offer services across our own internet. Knowledge like that will make hooking you printer up a snap next time. We routinely use digital modes that allow effective communication using 1/1000th the power needed just a decade ago. While some of us still employ large antenna arrays for daily worldwide communication, it is now possible to work the world with a very modest station.

Full Tilt Ice Cream’s 10th anniversary – DATE CHANGE
Jun 23 @ 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

JUNE 19TH UPDATE – DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED

A milestone is fast approaching for Full Tilt Ice Cream, as it celebrates its 10th anniversary on June 20th, 2018.

A celebration is planned for 6/20/2018 from 4 pm to 11 pm at the Rat City location. Live music by Rats in the Grass at 8 pm. A portion of the day’s proceeds will be going to the White Center Food Bank

On June 19th they will be celebrating the newest store with a day of free ice cream at the Capitol Hill location. From noon on, the first 200 people will receive a free kids scoop.

We have had a lot of amazing memories from the past 10 years. We have hosted some great bands, some had their first show at Full Tilt. Other nights we hosted bands and artists that we are grateful that they decided to actually play. Mudhoney, Spencer Moody, Damien Jurado, and Kimya Dawson come to mind.

There have been countless birthdays and celebrations hosted inside our walls, and we are overjoyed every day to see the faces of our community members that have supported us for an entire decade. Our first day we had no idea who would show up. We figured our friends would come see us, and maybe a few people in the neighborhood. We sold out of everything in a few hours, and the next day was even busier. White Center has changed so much in the past 10 years. Some of it good, and some of it a little sad, but we are happy to be a member of the community.

Full Tilt Ice Cream established in June 20th 2008 in Rat City was founded by Ann Magyar and Justin Cline and originally had one location, no employees, and no idea what they were doing. Now, with over 30 employees and 5 locations, over 200 wholesale clients and plans for massive future expansions, it seems the next 10 years will be even more fun.

GARDENS

Urban Stepped Garden
Levels of planters filled with hardy, natural northwest plants blur the hard edges of the building, while contrasting colors of burgundy, chartreuse and dark green repeat throughout the garden.

A Sidewalk Orchard
Explore a real working garden creatively designed within a small space. Edibles and ornamentals combine to provide beauty and joy for neighbors and passersby. This garden sparks conversation and invites everyone to slow down and smell the flowers.

An Oasis for Birds, Pollinators and People
A naturalist specializing in bird behavior and a permaculture educator and landscape designer have joined forces to create a richly diverse habitat in an urban environment and a peaceful, bountiful and safe home for native birds.

A Tale of Two Gardens
Just steps below street level lie two secret gardens. Enter the gardens between the two houses and step down into the north garden along a series of small waterfalls. Pause to take in expansive views of Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains.

An Inspired Sanctuary
Five tall and thoughtfully-placed Japanese maples, underplanted with hostas, Japanese blood grass and Japanese forest grass anchor the entry into this serenely modern garden.

A Dedicated Rock Gardener
Step down from a small rock terrace into a large and casual garden. Let your eyes follow the curving line of lawn punctuated by vine and Japanese maples, rhododendrons, grasses, blueberries, and flowers.

Creekside Retreat
Walk up a few steps from the city sidewalk and hear the sounds of water gently burbling from a natural stone fountain. As you move along the hand-cut flagstone path between lush plantings of Japanese maple, hydrangea, ferns, hosta, wild ginger, fuchsia, and golden grasses, a small patio emerges along with soothing sounds of moving water.

A Collector’s Garden
A pair of watchful gargoyles sit patiently at the corners of this formal and very eclectic garden. Follow the driveway toward the house and a formal garden courtyard is revealed with a pergola and water fountain on a stone patio.

Picture Perfect
A riot of color pulls you up the walk under an old and stately copper beech. A path to your left brings you around and through a colorful palette of ninebark, foxglove, salvia, roses, and sedum that surrounds a tall Japanese maple—the focal point of this patio garden and seating area.

Waterwise Oasis
Enter through the south gate and pass between potted bamboo and a large myrtle. The backyard opens up in a surprise view. Under the shade of the Rainier cherry tree that continues to bear copious fruit, a patio of stone pavers connects with a wood deck and hot tub to create a little oasis.

Pocket Paradise
A few steps down from the sidewalk lies a hidden gem of a garden. Massive stone steps lead to a hand-laid bluestone patio, softened by numerous maples and a large witch hazel all underplanted with lush hostas, ferns and oakleaf hydrangeas.

West Seattle Bee Garden
The West Seattle Bee Garden supports three hives in a special enclosure, easily viewed on three sides through large Plexiglas walls. Beautiful blooms of black-eyed Susan, bee balm, echinacea, and annual cosmos attract bees and human visitors, who come to sit and enjoy the blooms and the humming of the bees.

BENEFICIARIES
West Seattle Garden Tour has selected seven local non-profits as beneficiaries of the 24th annual tour. Proceeds from the 2018 garden tour will support improvements to four public gardens, a summer theater program for youth, the Urban Forest Symposium, and a mural restoration project in West Seattle. The garden tour’s designated beneficiaries for 2018 are: ArtsWest, the Arboretum at South Seattle College, Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden, Little Red Hen Project, PlantAmnesty, Seattle Chinese Garden, and West Seattle Junction Association.

West Seattle Garden Tour intends to raise $26,750 for the seven local projects from the sale of garden tour tickets, a raffle on tour day, an art auction, and sponsorship revenue. Information about the selected beneficiaries and the projects WSGT expects to fund can be found at westseattlegardentour.org/beneficiaries.

Garden Fantasia is featured on the 2018 Garden Tour’s official poster and ticket book. West Seattle Garden Tour will auction the artwork on the day of the tour; bids will be taken in one of the gardens from 9 am to 5 pm on Sunday, June 24. Proceeds will benefit the year’s designated beneficiaries.

This workshop series is a basic primer on current theory about gender (distinct from sex assignment and
sexual orientation) and how it relates to everyone, whether trans*, gender fluid, cis-gender, non-binary, etc. 

We will focus on our own experiences of identifying with our gender, of having our gender expression
policed by others (and ourselves), and the church’s role in supporting human freedom around gender
identity and expression. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of
what it means to be an ally and co-conspirator with trans* and gender non-conforming folx, and the
gifts that progressive Christian theology can bring to this work.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 29 all-day

(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.”

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 30 all-day

(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.”
