Ancient Local Plant and Animal Community Recovery Workshop and Tour @ Orchard St Ravine
May 28 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join Naturalist Stewart Wechsler (of Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures) on Saturday, May 28th, 10:00 am–2:00 pm for an Ancient Local Plant and Animal Community Recovery Workshop and Tour:

Learn Stewart’s methods, developed over the last 20 years, how best to help the wealth of the ancient pre-European local ecological community grow back. Unlike much of what is called “restoration”, Stewart’s methods start with the principle that “mother knows best”, with the mother plants and mother nature knowing best when and where to grow their offspring, and letting them do most of the planting, while we give them a helping hand to re-spread over the land that, before European contact, they had completely covered in a great wealth of diversity. We will start in Stewart’s Orchard St Ravine mini-prairie, where Stewart has helped the local prairie community make a come-back, then head to Lincoln Park, where the ancient local plant community had already had Seattle’s greatest remaining natural diversity, and where Stewart has helped it maintain and regain some of its pre-European rich diversity and surface coverage.

$25 or any contribution.

Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach 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.”

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 and enjoy area beaches this summer. Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach 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.”

Arts in Nature Festival 2016 @ Camp Long
Aug 20 @ 11:00 am – 9:00 pm

The 2016 Arts in Nature Festival will return on August 20-21 at Camp Long. The festival is an eclectic experience of music, art, poetry and performance in the woods of Seattle’s only camp ground. The diverse lineup of artists includes music from indie rock to traditional Japanese folk, African dance, reggae, plus dance performance, poetry, and audio/visual art installations in the Museum of Sound.

Highlights of the artist lineup include Seattle’s favorite Clinton Fearon with Boogie Brown Band, Dixie Gypsy Project, Seattle Art Song Society, Etienne Cakpo with Gansango Music & Dance group and Seattle Art Song Society, with many others rounding out the weekend lineup.

The “arts in nature” concept encourages artists and audience members to engage in active participation both with each other and with the natural landscape of Camp Long. Performances will be intimate, ambient, and acoustic in three different venues throughout the park: in a forested grove by the Pond, on the climbing Glacier, and at the Mainstage in the Meadow.

Camp Long’s rustic cabins will house the MUSEUM OF SOUND where artists will take up residency for the weekend creating multidisciplinary installations blending sound, auditory arts, music and visual arts. The cabins meander through the forested perimeter of the park, and festival goers will have the opportunity to enter and
explore each cabin. Most of the cabins will have a hands-on component allowing attendees to interact with the artists’ work.

Installations include work by Markel Uriu, Shannon Noel, Amaranta Ibarra-Sandys and poetry and spoken word by Imani Sims.

In addition to viewing performances and installations, festival-goers can participate in poetry workshops, art activities, costumed hikes through the forest, and a beer garden sponsored by Fremont Brewing.

The Arts in Nature Festival is an annual event hosted by Nature Consortium, a West Seattle-based nonprofit that connects people, arts, and nature. The Festival is a longstanding tradition, made stronger this year with additional support from DNDA. Tickets for the festival are on sale for $10 per day or $16 for the weekend. To view the full artist lineup and purchase tickets today, visit http://fest.naturec.org.

The Arts in Nature Festival is made possible with support from The Boeing Company, Nucor, The Stranger, Fremont Brewing, KUOW, DNDA and Camp Long.

Longfellow Creek Watershed Walk & Salmon Watch @ Dragonfly Pavillion
Nov 5 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

From Puget Soundkeeper Alliance:

Join us as we walk a section of Longfellow Creek in West Seattle to investigate the health of one of our local salmon runs. Longfellow Creek, which flows from Roxhill Bog to Elliot Bay, provides spawning habitat for a population of coho salmon every year.

A group of dedicated volunteers is working with Soundkeeper to monitor whether the coho in Longfellow reproduce successfully or succumb to stormwater pollution in the river and die before spawning (a phenomenon known as pre-spawn mortality). Every day for the duration of the salmon run, teams are documenting their observations of live coho and dissecting the dead carcasses to check spawning condition. Come join our Saturday group of volunteers and see them in action!

Also at the event will be groups from the Nature Consortium, Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association, King County Conservation District, and the City of Seattle to talk about wetland recovery, native plants, rain gardens, and what Seattle is doing to reduce the effects of toxic stormwater runoff on salmon populations and other wildlife.

This is a great way to observe one of nature’s most amazing migrations, get a taste of scientific field work, and learn more about what you can do to restore the health of our local waterways.

Equipment: Be prepared to get dirty. Wear athletic clothing and shoes that can get wet. We will be walking along the creek through some muddy areas.

Date: Saturday, November 5th
Time: 11:30am to 1:00pm
Location: Dragonfly Garden, 4107 28th Avenue SW, Seattle 98126

Artful, Therapeutic, and Informed Weeding at Lincoln Park
Dec 14 @ 8:30 am – 11:00 am

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Wednesday, December 14th 8:30 am–11:00 am, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures offers: Artful, Therapeutic and Informed Weeding:

Help preserve our natural heritage for future generations. Learn the best strategies to help declining local, wild rarities grow back, as we protect them from weeds. The wealth of our ancient, unique, local natural community, has been in decline ever since the first global gold seekers brought with them seeds of weeds that our local natural community was not adapted to living with. Tinkering with plants as we sit in beautiful natural surroundings, goes back in our evolutionary roots to before agriculture, and there is an instinctive therapy in sitting on a bed of moss, plucking out plants, either for harvest, or to help valued surrounding plants, or both. As we sit in nature with our neighbors, wiggling out weeds, we can learn various strategic weeding methods, including learning the identification and root structure of each weed species we target, then when, how, and where, they would disperse if we let them. We can also learn which weeds we can nibble on. Then we learn the reason we are weeding, which is to help the re-spreading of the declining local, wild plants, and the wild animals that are adapted to the declining plants, those weeds were pushing out. Then on the way out we can learn the art of “weed walking”, where we pull the weeds away from the declining wild plants, while we walk, hardly losing a step.

This is a world that we could be moving back towards with each of our community gatherings in nature, where we are contributing to the natural community as a mutualistic member of that community, rather than a parasitic or predatory member of that community. Could this model go viral? Could it spread around the globe better and last longer than Pokeman Go? Why not?

I ask that people preregister to ensure that the group size is manageable both for me and the mosses. e-mail me at ecostewart@gmail.com or phone me at 206 932-7225 (currently only land line).

While the program is free, Stewart appreciates any useful support that the human community gives him that will help the growth of the success of his efforts to promote the protection and recovery our most precious and unique local natural communities that our misguided human culture has increasingly been degrading and diminishing.

WHAT: Preserving the Duwamish Cultural Landscape
WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016, 10am to 4pm. Free
WHERE: Duwamish Longhouse & Cultural Center, 4705 W Marginal Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106, 206-431-1582.

“Preserving the Duwamish Cultural Landscape” is a free public outreach event of the Duwamish Longhouse Urban Reforestation Project sponsored by a King Conservation District grant.

The Duwamish Tribe, Seattle Parks and other community partners are all working to restore native habitats that preserve the Duwamish cultural landscape for all to explore. The Duwamish Tribe is still here and its traditional stories provide a narrative for a deeper understanding of the indigenous land we all share and the bounty that awaits us as traditional habitats are restored.

Regarding the Duwamish Urban Reforestation Project, invasive plants have been removed and native plants reintroduced. One of them, the Western Red Cedar has been used by our people to make baskets, weave hats and traditional clothing. Duwamish tribal member, DeAnn Sackman Jacobson, will talk about how our ancestors harvested bark and other materials to make baskets and garments. She will demonstrate the process of preparing and weaving the bark.

Brooke Alford of the Duwamish Hill Preserve will speak about the restoration of Duwamish Hill in Tukwila, their native plant nursery and volunteer opportunities. Native storyteller Roger Fernandes will share the Duwamish epic North and South Wind story associated with the Duwamish Hill site. Duwamish tribal member Blake Shelafoe will also share his own story about the Duwamish River.

AGENDA–SCHEDULE

10-10:15 Opening. Duwamish Reforestation Project update. Presenter: Nancy Sackman (Duwamish Tribe).

10:15-11:00–Restoring Native Habitats. Insights into the native habitat restoration of Seattle’s green spaces by Seattle Park & Recreation–cedars, cattails and more. Presenters: Michael Yadrick and Lisa Ciecko, Seattle Parks. Explore More: http://www.seattle.gov/parks

11:15-12:00–Brunch (soup, fruit, cookies, coffee/tea)

11:15-12:00–Discovering Duwamish Hill Preserve

The Duwamish Hill Preserve is a 10.5 acre parcel of Duwamish tribal historical, cultural and ecological significance in Tukwila. Along the banks of the Duwamish River, the hill is a glacial remnant where many rarely seen species of flora and fauna can be found. It is the site of the Duwamish tribal oral tradition known as the “Epic of the North & South Winds.” Learn how to volunteer. Presenter: Brooke Alford, MLA, Urban Habitat Landscape Design.

Duwamish Hill Preserve http://forterra.org/subpage/duwamish-hill-preserve

12:00-1:00–Duwamish Basket & Mat Making Demonstration

Presenter: Deanne Jacobs (Duwamish Tribe).

1:00-2:00—Epic of the North & South Wind (Duwamish Oral Tradition)

Presenter: Roger Fernandes (Lower Elwha Band of the Klallam Indians) is a renowned storyteller and artist living in Seattle, WA. Storytelling is Healing and Teaching The true power of storytelling comes when the moisture of the teller’s breath gives life and power to the story.

At one time, all Duwamish people knew the same stories. We understood the world through those common stories. The stories taught and guided and healed us. Sent to us by our ancestors who knew we would need these stories so we could live in the world in a good way– those stories are still waiting to do their work for those who will listen.

2:00-3:00—Duwamish Cultural Sharing—We Are Still Here

Songs, stories & dance. Participatory. Bring your drum. Presenter: Blake Shelafoe (Duwamish Tribe).

This year, the Duwamish Longhouse is reforesting the hillside behind the Longhouse and Seattle Park’s Department is restoring 40 acres in the West Seattle Green Belt. Duwamish activities are funded in part by a grant from the King County Conservation District. http://www.kingcd.org/programs-grant.htm

Our project’s objectives are:

to restore the Longhouse’s property’s ecosystem by providing a place to sustain native food and medicine, habitat and wildlife in relation to the Duwamish culture,

to engage the public and raise educational awareness of the Duwamish native culture and its relationship to the restored ecosystem, and

to work with community partners to increase public awareness of urban reforestation stewardship.

Learning the Art and Practice of Healing Mother Nature Herself
Jan 8 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Sunday, January 8th, 11:00 am–1:30 pm, join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures to Learn the Art and Practice of Healing Mother Nature Herself from Mother Nature’s Medicine Man, who has spent most of his 60 years studying her local natural community, and how we might best help with the protection and recovery of her incredible wealth and beauty that has been in decline ever since the first human sought to control and exploit her. This will be an all generations program for all levels of knowledge. Learning and practicing the protection and healing of our natural community is not only fascinating, and feels like a good thing to be doing for the world, but doing it is therapeutic and a good activity to rebuild richer, and healthier, human community around.

This session is at one of Seattle’s greatest remaining urban oases of nature at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. The following session could be at your favorite remaining local oasis of nature, where you and your neighbors renew your spirits in nature. I don’t ask for any monetary contributions for this program, but I do ask for any help you can contribute towards my efforts to promote a paradigm shift for the human community to increasingly again appreciate and serve our Mother Nature, while again serving the health of our human communities in the process.

Preregistration is not required, but if you tell me you are coming it will help me estimate the size group to plan for. We might follow up by planning a “stewardship adventure” to a site where some species still thrives, that we estimate once thrived at our favorite local oasis of nature, but has since become rare or lost, as we build a growing community of stewards. We can learn about that species that has become rare or lost from that favorite nature spot, do enough stewardship of its habitat in that remaining stronghold that the mother plant would be happy to give us a few of her seeds to give good homes to, and bring them back to our favorite local nature oasis for her. If no one contacts me, and it’s weather is too rough, I may not show up. Call or e-mail: 206 932-7225; ecostewart@gmail.com

Sunday Community Service to Serve the God of Mother Nature @ Lincoln Park
Jan 22 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

January 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am–1:30 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures invites you to:

Sunday Community Service to Serve the God of Mother Nature
Attend a Sunday service of a different sort! In honor of the god of Mother Nature we will have a community gathering to serve her by strategically sacrificing weeds in her honor. Also, as part of the service there will be a sermon on strategies of how to make the most of sacrificing of the weeds to get the maximum mileage towards the preservation of the ancient art of the god of Mother Nature. These strategies will also apply to helping help her recover the maximum amount of her natural health, natural wealth, and natural beauty as she can. This is a health, wealth and beauty that has been in decline ever since the culture of the allegorical Able and Cain, the animal, and plant and land controllers, and the culture of the legendary King David the gold hoarder, started taking control of the planet and its populace.

We will meet at the kiosk at the northern of the 2 parking lots at Lincoln Park, across from Rose St. No pre-registration required.

And don’t worry about sitting in a stuffy temple, church or mosque, listening to a boring sermon, as the sermon will be delivered either while walking or sitting outdoors in a relatively beautiful natural area. As you will either be pleasantly plucking at the sacrificial weeds, wildly ripping them out by their roots, or just enjoying being in nature, if you prefer, you can ignore the sermon! And if you have had enough before 1:30 you can always peel off early!

While all weed sacrifice can be done bare handed, if you have a pair of work gloves, and maybe a Hori Hori weeding knife, you could bring them.

Gibbous Moon Walk with the Stars, Owls and Trees @ Lincoln Park
Feb 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures for Gibbous Moon Walk with the Stars, Owls and Others @ Lincoln Park With a bright, gibbous moon high in the sky, we’ll look and listen, and hoot for the owls. We’ll learn about the wealth of our local natural community at night. We might see the moon and some stars if the clouds cooperate. While the owls may be quiet and not showing themselves, the herbs, shrubs and trees can’t hide and we can always learn a bit about them or any member of the natural community we can see, hear, smell or taste, and a hike in nature at night is always an adventure!

I ask that people pre-register for me to manage the group size by e-mailing me: ecostewart@gmail.com or phoning me: 206 932-7225 (I still haven’t learned how to use my cell). We meet by the kiosk at the northern of Lincoln Park’s two parking lots, Across from SW Rose St., between SW Thistle St. at the south end, and SW Monroe St. at the north end.

No fee is required, but I ask that people offer any form of support they are comfortable with that would help me continue my efforts to inspire and teach people about the true wealth of nature, while teaching better stewardship of our natural community, building, in the process, a healthier human community.

Seeking Seattle’s Surviving Salamanders @ Camp Long
Feb 11 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures for Seeking Seattle’s Surviving Salamanders – How We Might Help Them. Let’s seek and celebrate Seattle’s surviving salamanders, at possibly their best remaining Seattle refugium at Camp Long. While we see if they are home in their habitat, we will discuss what constitutes healthy habitat for our different salamander species, and we might be able to do a small bit to improve that habitat. Of the six Seattle salamanders that may still occur in the city, there are 4 species that still occur at Camp Long. Two of these never go in the water, laying their eggs in hidden, moist places. They are the (extra cute) Ensatina (in the photo) and the Western Red-backed Salamander. If they are home we can hold and examine them, before letting them return. Two lay their eggs, in jelly-like masses in the pond,meeting their mates for their dates on or around Valentines’ night, so if we are lucky we might see some early eggs in the pond. Whether the salamanders are home or not, there is a whole community of plants, animals and fungi to enjoy and learn about and help.

Pre-registration requested: e-mail or phone to pre-register: ecostewart@gmail.com or 206 932-7225 While no cash is required, I ask that people support me and my efforts to promote a paradigm shift of re-building a human community that is increasingly again appreciating and serving the wealth of our natural community, while serving healthier human communities in the process.

Join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures for Natural Community Service and Admiration Stroll in Fauntleroy Park. We will meet at the entrance on SW Barton St by SW Henderson St, between 40th Av SW & 41st Av SW.

Why not join your local human community, as we take a stroll in our local natural community, and admire her beauty, her fascinating intricacy, and learn Stewart’s strategies, developed over the last 20 years, to get the most mileage in helping Mother Nature heal from the abuses incurred in a bad relationship with her children, Able, Cain and David? While we learn the strategies, we’ll control a few wily weeds that are encroaching on declining plant community members. This session will be at our local treasure of nature, Fauntleroy Park, where the first of over-controlling Able’s creature creations, the domesticated dog, is trampling the Trilliums, while salamanders, whose cover has been blown, struggle to safely sneak around. No fee is required, but I am building a community of support for me, my work, and for a growing movement. That support can take any helpful form.

Pre-registration is not required, but it would help me estimate the crowd to prepare for. If no one pre-registers I may not show up. To pre-register e-mail ecostewart@gmail.com or phone (land only right now) 206 932-7225

Seattle Warrior’s Call: Healing Through Service @ Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
Apr 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

VeteransRespond and Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center are proud to present, “Seattle Warrior’s Call: Healing Through Service”, where attendees will be informed, inspired, energized and empowered to join the fight to protect our water, environment, people, and future generations of all species.

The event will feature brave warriors who are veterans of both the US Armed Services and of the Standing Rock Movement. Joseph George, an Air Force Veteran; Brandee Paisano, a US Navy Veteran and Laguna Pueblo Native; and Mark Sanderson, a US Army Veteran and recipient of the Purple Heart, will be among the powerful speakers telling their stories.

Opening ceremony and prayer will be led by members of the Duwamish Tribe, including Ken Workman, and Paul Wagner, with speaking from Raymond Kingfisher as well.

As sworn defenders of our country, the veterans of VeteransRespond felt called to support environmental rights, and Native Lands. That call to action has become a movement, a journey to ongoing community activism and worldwide healing. They are proud to share their personal journeys at this very special event.

Join for an Inspiring and Unforgettable Evening
Friday, April 21, 2017
Doors open at 7:00 PM.

Admission is FREE and open to the public.

The space is wheelchair accessible.

About VeteransRespond:
VeteransRespond is a service organization founded in December 2016 by disabled Veterans who were part of the advance team at Standing Rock.  VeteransRespond works to organize and coordinate highly trained Veteran volunteers to provide relief and service work in environmental and man-made disaster sites all across the United States. The organization was born out of the Standing Rock movement, which saw more than 4,000 veterans mobilize to Camp Oceti in defense of the Water Protectors and those standing against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

DAPL, a 1,172-mile pipeline to transport crude oil across the Midwestern US, jeopardizes the drinking water of millions of Americans while simultaneously desecrating the sacred ground of the Lakota/Sioux nation. The veterans of VeteransRespond believe wholeheartedly that DAPL must be opposed in accordance with their oaths to protect America from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Seattle’s Urban Bird Treaty Signing and Birdwalk @ Lincoln Park North Playground
May 5 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

On Friday, May 5, Seattle will become an Urban Bird Treaty city.

Two events are scheduled:
Birdwalk: 10 – 10:40 am
Signing Ceremony: 11:00 am – Noon

Lincoln Park at the North Playground
8011 Fauntleroy Way SW
For more info, call (206) 523-4483

Please join us for the signing of Seattle’s Urban Bird Treaty!

After extensive outreach and advocacy by Seattle Audubon and partners, Seattle’s city council passed a resolution to enter into an Urban Bird Treaty with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The Treaty partnership will protect birds in the Seattle area by developing programs to reduce hazards to migrating birds that travel along the Pacific Flyway, restoring habitat, and connecting residents and youth to nature within our city.

On May 5, the city and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will officially sign the treaty, an important milestone that recognizes Seattle’s role in protecting the Pacific Flyway. Seattle Audubon volunteers will lead a free birdwalk, one hour prior to the ceremony.

This work is a collaboration between Seattle Audubon, Audubon Washington, Heron Habitat Helpers, City of Seattle, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.

Synopsis: As Ralph, a serial killer with a heart of ice, sits in prison contemplating crimes, two women cross the country to confront him – Agnetha, a psychologist who studies the minds of monsters, and Nancy, mother to one of his young victims. When their paths finally cross, they explore the dark side of human nature and our capacity for change.

Cast
The ArtsWest production of Frozen features a meeting of two Seattle acting powerhouses – Amy Thone (THE TRIAL, TITUS ANDRONICUS) as Nancy, and Peter Crook (Mozart in Broadway’s touring cast of AMADEUS, INTIMAN’s ANGELS IN AMERICA and more) as Ralph. Rounding out the cast is Jonelle Jordan as Agentha, making her ArtsWest debut.

Medieval Women’s Choir: ‘The White Lily’ concert preview @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
May 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

On Sunday, May 21, 2017, 2–3:30 pm, everyone is invited to the West Seattle (Admiral) Library’s preview of  “The White Lilly”.

Join Eric Mentzel and members of the Medieval Women’s Choir for a preview of their upcoming concert “The White Lily.” A perusal of medieval Marian texts yields a long list of honorific names for Mary, the mother of Jesus. She is the white lily, the shining star, the glorious mother of all. Songs and poems for Mary became so basic to medieval culture that they popped up everywhere: adopting the melodies of popular troubadour songs, inserted into preexisting liturgical music, and forming the basis of decidedly non-sacred love songs. This program of Marian music is a true cross-section of medieval music and a window into the medieval heart.

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Southwest Stories: Streetcar Suburbs – The Highland Park & Lake Burien Railroad on Sunday,
May 21, 2017, Seattle Public Library, Delridge Branch, 2 – 3 p.m in the Meeting Room.

The history of West Seattle, the Duwamish Peninsula, and the birthplace of Seattle comes alive in this series of monthly presentations with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Before paved roads and cars, rail was king! In 1912, the Highland Park and Lake Burien Railroad electric streetcar line opened large land tracks in southwest Seattle and King County. Mike Bergman (President, Tacoma Chapter, National Railway Historical Society) will share maps and historic photos that reveal the elevated structure approaching downtown Seattle, the “runaway track” from Highland Park to the Duwamish River, and the many freight spurs serving local businesses and industries.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

There are a few ups and downs and a bit of scrambling but only modest elevation changes, suitable for most ages with appropriate footwear. The trail makes a loop from the south end of the campus of South Seattle College, paralleling the campus in the greenbelt, to the Chinese Garden and Arboretum at the north end of campus, returning to the start along the campus and 16th Ave. SW.

More details can be found here.

Lincoln Park Nature Walk: Edible and Medicinal Plants @ Lincoln Park @ South Parking Lot
Jun 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Edible and Medicinal Plants of Lincoln Park
Sunday, June 11th, 3-5pm
Space is limited to 15.
From Jonathan Hover:

Edible and Medicinal Plants of Lincoln Park
Sunday, June 11th, 3-5pm
**We’ll meet at the parking lot at the south end of the park at 3pm**

Lincoln Park offers a fun variety of forest, shoreline, and metropolitan plants friends. Plants we’ll see include Huckleberries, Thimbleberries, False Solomon’s Seal, St. John’s Wort, Oregon Grape, Indian Plum, and many more!

We’ll talk about how to identify, ethically gather, prepare, and use the medicinal plants we’ll encounter. I provide handouts with the common and scientific names, preparations, and uses of the most of the plants we’ll see, as well as a glossary of herbal terms I’ll be using, and botanical illustrations describing leaf shapes and types, and flower parts and types for context.

Make sure to bring something to write with, comfortable shoes, and water!

I grew up in southeast Seattle, and have always had a passion for the natural world. I attended the Intro to Western Herbalism program at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in Boulder, Co. from 1999-2000, and received a certificate in Advanced Herbalism from the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, Co. in 2003. I’ve studied the uses of northwest native plants for the last 15 years, and have led plant walks professionally on Orcas Island, Seattle, and the Cascades. I have found that being able to identify and know the uses of the plants around me has changed the way I view the world, giving me a deeper sense of connection with this beautiful place we live, and I love to share that with others.

I want my walks to be accessible and affordable to all who are interested. $15 sliding scale, open to trades, nobody refused for lack of money, children 13 and under free. The event will be limited to 15 people. You can reserve a spot through my paypal. Pay any amount and comment on how many spots you’d like, or email me at evergreenplantwalks@gmail to request a spot or with any questions.
