Can you imagine Puget Sound without that amazing sight? We can’t. So, in case you haven’t already seen this on the WSB West Seattle Events calendar, here’s a reminder: Two weeks from today, if you can spare a few hours to help make sure our area’s threatened orcas (fewer than 100 left!) get a better chance of survival, you can join an Orca Steward training session. 10 am-2:30 pm on Saturday, June 11th, at Alki Community Center, as announced by Donna Sandstrom of The Whale Trail:

Topics/presenters include:

Orca ABCs – Cindy Hansen, Whale Museum
Killer Whale Management and Recovery – Lynne Barre, NOAA Fisheries
West Seattle Orca Sightings – Mark Sears, Orca Researcher
What We Can Do To Help the Orcas – Franziska McKay, People for Puget Sound.

The event is free, and open to all ages. … Lunch will be provided.

Though there’s no charge – thanks in part to a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods matching-fund grant – you need to SIGN UP NOW – since space is limited. And you can do it online, right this very moment – just go here. Need to know more first? Check out The Whale Trail’s website and/or Facebook page. Or – e-mail

SUNDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE: Donna sends word the session is now full! But e-mail that same address to get on the waiting list for the next one (date etc. TBA).
