NO SCHOOL TOMORROW – SO STROLL THE WEST DUWAMISH GREENBELT! Just so happens that tomorrow’s day off for Seattle Public Schools students coincides with the Nature Consortium‘s monthly free guided eco-hike through the West Duwamish Greenbelt, the largest contiguous stretch of forest left in Seattle city limits. 1 pm tomorrow, meet at 14th and Holly (map), it’s a fairly easy “hike” – RSVP to Lisa at NC, lisa@naturec.org.

WEST SEATTLE GARDEN TOUR ANNOUNCES BENEFICIARIES: Speaking of the Nature Consortium – they’re among this year’s West Seattle Garden Tour beneficiaries! Jane Watson with the WSGT committee sends word that they’ve just decided who will get the proceeds from this year’s tour (set for July 17th):

Each year, the WSGT donates the net proceeds from the Tour to Seattle-based non-profit organizations that promote horticultural, educational, or artistic endeavors. This year, we are pleased to announce that proceeds from the 2011 Garden Tour will benefit ArtsWest Theatre, the Seattle Chinese Garden, the Duwamish Longhouse, Lincoln Park P-Patch, Nantes Park, the Nature Consortium, Walking on Logs Landscape Restoration Group and the West Seattle Tool Library.

Jane also notes that if you’d like to be a sponsor (business OR individual) for this year’s West Seattle Garden Tour (WSB is signing on again this year), this is the last month to do it – sponsorships make up more than half the nonprofit tour’s proceeds, which go to those beneficiaries. You can find out more about sponsoring WSGT by going to westseattlegardentour.com.
