First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Sep 7 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

Louisa Boren STEM K-8 playground project community meeting @ school cafeteria
Nov 14 @ 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

My name is Adrienne Ollerenshaw. I am a teacher and a mother to a six-year old first grader at Louisa Boren STEM K-8. I have noticed the school’s need for additional activities on the school’s blacktop. With the support from the PTA, I will be applying for Seattle’s Department of Neighborhood Community Partnership Funds to make improvements to our school playground. I will be asking for support from the school and local community in several ways. First, I will be holding a brief community meeting, before the PTA meeting at 5:45 in the school Cafeteria on 11-14-19, to gather ideas, gauge community interest, and create a playground committee. To be eligible for the City’s matching grants, I will have to hold three community meetings, and this will be the first.

An important part of receiving funding from the city for a project like ours is to recognize it as a benefit to the community. Where our school lies on Delridge, there is very little close by, safe space for neighborhood parents and families to use. Within a one-mile radius of STEM, there are no easy, accessible parks for families. With an additional play structure or other play equipment, our school can create a safe, welcoming space for children, daycares, and families to use.

If you know people or businesses in the community that would be willing to contribute their time, money, feedback to this project, please invite them to the brief community meeting . If you know a community member that would like to be on the playground committee, have them email me directly.

Thank you for your support.

Tinkergarten Free Trial @ Lincoln Park
Jan 14 @ 10:00 am – 10:50 am

At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Alison Arnote, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we share insight into your child’s development.

This trial class is:

  • Designed for children ages 18 months-8 years. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
  • Limited to the first 15 families who register.

Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.

We start the class at the specified location but may end within a reasonable walk from that location.

This trial class is free.
