Deathsploration Resource and Art Fair @ Camp Long
Nov 2 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

Discover cool art, organizations, local businesses, and how the death and dying community is living in Western Washington. Local organizations, artists, businesses post up at camp long for the day, creating space for you to discover, engage, learn and play. This event will feature prizes, freebies, and amazing humans.

Come for the raffle, stay for the Dance Party!!

Let us know you’re coming.

Let us know if you want to host a table at the fair.


This event is part of Deathsploration month in western Washington.
We’re all gonna die, let’s talk about it, a little.

Deathsploration is a month-long effort to increase conversation about death and dying in Washington. Beginning on October 1 and running through November 2, community organizations and businesses in western Washington will work in partnership to create opportunities for engagement through education, art, dance, movement, death cafés, community outreach, workshops, and more.

In the United States, the topic of death and dying is not commonly paired with living. Deathsploration is an opportunity to reestablish the normalcy of death, a subtle reminder that talking about and preparing for death will not cause one’s death. Similarly, not talking about death will not keep it away. It is our hope that the exploration of death–through all the senses and on our own terms–will help people on the way to a good death.

Tinkergarten Lantern Walk @ Lincoln Park
Nov 3 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Tinkergarten‘s Lantern Walk is designed to help kids big and small welcome and see the beauty in the darkness at the end of Daylight Saving time (aka “Fall back”). For our family and yours, we hope it becomes a magical, annual tradition. At the very least, it’s a chance to be out in the wild at night!

On the evening of the event, families will gather before dusk, sing songs, light lanterns, and enjoy an outdoor walk in the park. Simple and lovely. This event is free and open to all who register.

Fall nature outings are open for registration now!  Sign up for the popular nighttime walks, bird tours, mushroom walks, and so much more…

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek at Camp Long.

Longfellow Creek is a major waterway in West Seattle. It is also a little piece of the wild in the middle of the city. Coho salmon migrate up this waterway; beavers build dams and lodges on this creek; owls hunt for food along this artery. Explore a portion of this urban wilderness with a Seattle Urban Nature Guide. Look for seasonal changes and get to know some of your wild neighbors.

Be prepared to do some hiking over uneven terrain on this program.

Ages 6 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Everyone attending the program must be registered.

Meet the leader at the Camp Long Lodge.
