Want to know more about our local orcas? Here’s your chance. Jeff Hogan from West Seattle-headquartered Killer Whale Tales – who is often the first to share the word when orcas are visiting – has an invitation for you:
West Seattle residents – you’re invited to a special night out with Killer Whale Tales, a grassroots nonprofit that’s been hard at work for 12 years right here in our neighborhood of West Seattle.
Killer Whale Tales is empowering youth to protect Puget Sound by educating them about our beloved orca population. Our program brings environmental science directly into the classroom, at no cost to schools. In the past 10 years we’ve reached 100,000 students!
Join us Saturday, February 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. at C & P Coffee for a unique opportunity as an adult to immerse yourself in the same experience our kids have in the program! Founder Jeff Hogan will deliver his interactive presentation and guests are invited to learn about and identify the Southern Resident killer whales that call Puget Sound home. It’s an exciting time to talk about our orcas – as our local pod has welcomed eight babies this year!
Come relax, have a drink and connect with your neighbors! Event is free but donations are welcomed. RSVP at this link.
