You’ll pause to take in views of Alki, the Sound and the Olympics before heading down a final stairway to the waterfront. Eventually, you’ll turn back from the beach and back up the bluff, to find a set of tucked-away stairs that lead past a tiny pocket of charming homes and back toward Admiral Way. On the other side of Admiral, you can look down from a 1920s-vintage bridge into Schmitz Park Preserve before switch-backing down timber stairs into the Preserve itself. Schmitz Park Preserve is one of only two places in Seattle with remaining old-growth forest, and you will use its winding trails to get up-close views of its towering trees and lovely creek.

‘Reflections on A Restored Peat Fen’ @ Roxhill Park
Oct 12 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Reflections on A Restored Peat Fen, Seattle
Leader: Scott Blackstock, Roxhill Park Forest Steward
Saturday, October 12, 2:00 pm-4:00 pm

Join Roxhill Park’s steward, Scott Blackstock, in reflection on this urban natural area at the headwaters of Longfellow Creek years after a massive restoration project. In 1999 community volunteers began the conversion of a soggy park lawn to a restored ‘bog’. In an 8 year period hundreds of volunteers spent thousands of hours planting over 300 species of native plants creating a fen, meadow and woodland. At this natural area you can find some rare and interesting species. In autumn see the leaf and berry coloration of highbush cranberry, the leaf structure of scouler’s corydalis, seed heads of slough sedge, and smell the late season aroma of sweet gale. See if you can identify bog rosemary by remaining leaves and seeds, and bog birch by slow growth.See if the leaf’s orange underside changes on labrador tea, if the flat petiole of quaking aspen is loosening from the branch, if the needles of western larch are starting to fall, or if there are any remaining signs of camas. Check out Starflower Foundation’s report on what plants were originally planted, and which were still there in 2007: http://www.wnps.org/restoration/documents/RH/RH_Stewardship.pdf. Feel free to print out the plant lists to see how plant communities have evolved.

Longfellow Creek Watershed Walk
Nov 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Longfellow Creek Watershed Walk
When: Saturday, November 16th, 10 am to noon
Where: Meet at corner of 26th Ave SW and SW Yancy Street (1 block west of Delridge, 1 block south of Andover) – Bus stop at Delridge & Andover for Metro Routes 50, 120, and 125; nearby signs/trees for locking up bikes, parking available along 26th Ave SW and SW Andover Street.

What: Join Sustainable West Seattle for an urban hike through one of Seattle’s most beautiful watershed environments. You are invited on a hike through one of Seattle’s most beautiful watershed environments – Longfellow Creek. This walk will demonstrate how Seattle residents’ everyday activities can impact the natural environment in their own backyards, and what everyone can do to help preserve the health of our urban watersheds. Feet First Walking Ambassadors Bryan Fiedorczyk and Timothy Lowry will lead an urban hike through the Longfellow Creek Watershed. The creek drains almost 3000 acres of West Seattle and is one of only four waterways left in Seattle that flows freely year-round. This family-friendly walk is estimated to be between 2 to 3 miles at a slow to moderate pace.

While walking the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail, you will see wetlands, native meadows, conifer forests, a beaver dam and large-scale public art installations. Along the trail there will be examples of areas highly modified by development, the effects of runoff from rain and stormwater, restoration efforts, and sites featuring low impact development and green infrastructure techniques such as rain gardens.

We’ll start at trailhead northeast of Dragonfly Pavilion and follow the trail south across the Salmon Bone bridge, and down 26th Ave SW past Greg Davis Park and the Brandon Street Natural Area (King Conservation District highlights of restoration/volunteer efforts) towards the Delridge Natural Area (Delridge & Graham). We’ll turn around after about an hour of walking – at Juneau, we’ll follow 25th Ave SW north past a cluster of residential rain gardens near Brandon through Delridge Playfield and back along the trail to the starting point.

The Watershed Walk is co-sponsored by Sustainable West Seattle and the King Conservation District. More details here.

Join Stewart on an adventure with your family around Camp Long’s 68 acres of habitat.

Help the native community by learning an alien weed and pulling one. If you can see it, hear it or smell it Stewart can probably tell you what it is and some of its fascinating story!

Nature Walk: History of Friends of Schmitz Preserve Park
Sep 11 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

History of Friends of Schmitz Preserve Park, Seattle
Leader: Ken Shaw
Date: Thursday September 11th, 6:00 pm– 8:00 pm

This stream corridor of rare old growth forest has been stewarded by a community of volunteers for decades. At a time when Seattle is at risk of losing 70% of its canopy in the next 20 years, groups like these are vital to reversing this trend. Steward Ken Shaw will discuss his holistic restoration approach.

In addition to the common old growth trees, there are plenty of mature western yews (Taxus brevifolia). You can find a 2003 plant list here.

Interesting history of the park here.

Trail description: Irregular terrain, some brief steep trails, mostly flat loop trail.
Elevation gain 150 feet.

Where to meet: Admiral Way & SW Stevens at the kiosk.
What to bring: Dress suitable for weather, it will be darker and colder under the canopy. Flashlight optional.
Contact:Ken Shaw, 206-937-2718

Nature Consortium invites you to a community picnic and field day in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. This is a special event for all of our West Seattle neighbors to come together and celebrate our beautiful local forest. We will have live music, a scavenger hunt, art activities, and guided hikes through the forest. Bring a picnic, snacks will be provided.

Picnic in the Park
Saturday, September 27, 11 am–2 pm
West Duwamish Greenbelt
(accessible via the south parking lot at South Seattle College, or at the trail head at 14th Ave SW & SW Holly St)

Did You Know?

Located in the Delridge area of West Seattle, The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest remaining forest in the city of Seattle at over 500 acres. That means you don’t have to travel outside of the city to enjoy the great outdoors.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt provides many benefits for the environment and the community. Bald eagles, hawks, foxes, salamander, and other local wildlife rely on the habitat this greenbelt provides.

The plants in the forest help to reduce storm water runoff, filter pollutants in the water, and reduce erosion. As these plants absorb carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air, they also improve air quality and help reduce the effects of global warming.

And the best part? You don’t have to travel out of the city to experience the great outdoors. Urban forests like the West Duwamish Greenbelt are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Feet First 3rd Annual Stairway Walks Day @ West Seattle
Feb 7 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

On Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, join Feet First for Stairway Walks Day. Urban explorers are invited to join one of free, guided neighborhood walks featuring outdoor stairways in West Seattle. Space is limited to 35 people per walk. Please RSVP in advance at www.feetfirst.org or http://stairwaywalksday2015.bpt.me/ (when the signup period opens).

On these stairway routes you’ll discover gems you wouldn’t see otherwise. Colorful mosaics, serene pocket parks, restored creeks and gorgeous home are quietly hidden amid these stairway passages. Come see the sights and learn the stories that only Seattle stairways can tell… and only your feet can take you!

All proceeds for this event help support Feet First’s mission to ensure all communities across Washington are walkable.

Suggested donations start at $10, with free admission for children under 18.
Pay what you wish – no one will be turned away from joining in the fun.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT TODAY:
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?FeetFirst/8720108786/cd831fc4da/d580c38f0f

The stairs, many of them more than 100 years old, form a network of “scenic byways” for neighborhood discovery – a priceless asset for outdoor fun, fitness and health. The stairway routes featured on Stairway Walks Day are from Cathy and Jake Jaramillo’s book Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods. The book is intended to help urban adventurers discover and appreciate the beautiful greenspaces, history, art and architecture that make up the vivid fabric of our neighborhoods.

According to author and Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Cathy Jaramillo, “Stairways are truly the scenic byways to neighborhoods, and we’re always curious about what’s at the top – or the bottom. They get you to, and between, places you’d probably never know about otherwise. We’re excited about celebrating them with so many people on Stairway Walks Day!”

More about Feet First: Since 2001, Feet First has worked to ensure that all communities in Washington are walkable. Walking is a vital transportation mode that connects communities, reduces pollution, improves health and physical fitness, and allows people to explore their natural environment.

Soundway Trailhead (14th Ave SW & SW Holly St, Seattle)
The Green Seattle Partnership has a goal of restoring 2,500 acres of City-owned forested parkland, with a scale of 0-4 to classify each phase of restoration. Phase 0 indicates a site where restoration has yet to begin and Phase 4 indicates a restored forest that is in need only of periodic monitoring and maintenance. As of this Spring several of Nature Consortium’s work sites have reached the holy grail of “fully restored” status-Phase 4! Come take a walk in the greenbelt to experience and take a look at a variety of restoration sites, including our prized Phase 4 sites. This hike will be led by Restoration Director Lizzie Zemke.

‘Restoration Reunion’ and demonstration with David Rogers @ Log House Museum
Aug 9 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Two-part “Restoration Reunion” on Sunday, Aug. 9, to feature outdoor demonstration, dinner speech by log preservationist David Rogers:

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is thrilled to welcome back to West Seattle the log-home preservationist who was the contractor for restoration of its “Birthplace of Seattle” Log House Museum 18 years ago.

David Rogers will be the special guest of the historical society for two events on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2015. His appearances are supported by 4Culture.

~ The first event, free and open to the public, will run from 2 to 4 pm in the museum’s Circle Courtyard, 3003 61st Ave. S.W., where Rogers will conduct an interactive demonstration of log-restoration techniques and describe in detail the hands-on work he did on the museum.

~ The second event, at 6:30 pm is a fundraiser for the historical society, is a no-host dinner and speech at West 5 Lounge in the West Seattle Junction, at which Rogers will speak about the importance of preserving and restoring log structures. Admission is a $10 donation, payable at the door or online at http://www.loghousemuseum.info/events/welcome-back-david-rogers/. (Any food or drink ordered is in addition to the donation.)

Reservations are being taken for both events at
http://www.loghousemuseum.info/events/welcome-back-david-rogers/.

Rogers, who has operated his Logs & Timbers business from Rhododendron, Oregon, since 1983, has successfully helped scores of private organizations and public agencies to achieve their preservation goals.

He inspired countless thousands with his hands-on helming of the Log House Museum’s back (south) wall in 1996-1997. His craftsmanship on behalf of the museum is highlighted in a 6-minute video that is viewable at http://www.loghousemuseum.info/events/welcome-back-david-rogers/.

Wetlands 101: Guided hike @ Soundway Park
Aug 10 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

From Nature Consortium:

Join Nature Consortium for another guided hike in the West Duwamish Greenbelt! Wetlands are diverse and dynamic ecosystems, and we’re lucky to have many of them in West Seattle. They support a unique and important array of plants and animals, especially in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. On this hike we will look at wetland soils, talk about what constitutes a wetland, examine wetland plants, look at wetland indicators when water isn’t present, and discuss the functions of wetlands in the overall landscape. Free and open to the public. Four-legged friends welcome on leash.

Monday, August 10, 6:30-8 pm
Soundway Park (14th Ave SW & SW Holly St)

Hosted by Nature Consortium. Please RSVP at

Evening Walk with the Owls, Ravens and Other Life Forms @ Lincoln Park
Sep 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:15 pm

Explore nature at Lincoln Park with Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Saturday September 19, 2015 at 6:30 pm–8:15 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures offers:

Evening Walk with the Owls, Ravens and Other Life Forms at Lincoln Park:

Stewart shares his exceptional enthusiasm and knowledge of Lincoln’s natural community as we look for the Barred Owls and their signs, and listen and look for Seattle’s first successful nesting pair of Ravens, and their fledgelings, since urbanization pushed this species out many decades ago. The tour also includes any other plant or animal that anyone may want the story of. Adult level programming, but suitable for kids that don’t dominate. Meet at the north parking lot kiosk, across from Rose St. Call or e-mail to reserve a spot: 206 932-7225 (land ) orecostewart@gmail.com If rain is forecast check this website or my outgoing message on my answering machine (206 932-7225) for a possible cancellation due to excessively heavy rain (I won’t cancel for a light sprinkle.) Suggested donation $10 – $15.

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.

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.

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. If no one pre-registers I might not show up.

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

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.

National Trails Day: West Duwamish Greenbelt hikes @ West Duwamish Greenbelt
Jun 3 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Hike developed and undeveloped trails of the West Duwamish Greenbelt, the largest urban forest in Seattle on a ridge above the Duwamish RIver. Members of the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group and Nature Consortium will be on hand to guide hikers and provide information on the history and reforestation of the greenbelt. The first half of the trail is a constructed gravel trail. The second half is muddier and less developed. 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.

Guided hikes are at 10 am and noon – meet at 12th SW and SW Holly.

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.

Longfellow Creek celebration
Nov 5 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

From Seattle Parks:

Many community members, from organizations to individuals, work hard to keep Longfellow Creek healthy and accessible. Twenty-five years ago, two community plans laid out a vision for improved access to Longfellow creek. The Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail was developed by neighbors in partnership with government, businesses, non-profits, and schools. Formal tours and stewardship opportunities—like planting trees and monitoring water quality and salmon—provide hands-on connections to the Creek. Many schools in the area participate in arts, environmental education, and other programs along the Creek.

Longfellow Creek is a natural link among communities throughout Delridge, High Point, and Westwood neighborhoods. While many consider it a natural wonder, the Creek’s benefit to people, plants, and animals can be hidden from view. To bring light to Longfellow Creek’s contributions, the City of Seattle and community partners are hosting a celebration of the creek and we want you to join!

Celebrate 25+ years at the Creek

Bring your neighbors, friends, and family to celebrate over 25 years of community engagement with Longfellow Creek on November 5, 2017. The fun will kick off at the corner of 28th Ave SW and SW Dakota St* and run from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. All ages are encouraged to come participate in activities like exploring the Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge, caring for garden beds, creating a postcard inspired by Longfellow Creek, looking inside a salmon, and enjoying guided nature walks.

Please RSVP at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LongfellowCreek
Questions? Email Sheryl.Shapiro@Seattle.gov or call (206) 615-1443.
*In case of heavy rain, the celebration will be relocated to the Delridge Community Center (4501 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106).

Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge

Let your imagination soar when you see the giant salmon bones and 16-foot-tall dragonfly—two copper sculptures on the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail.

Postcards from the Creek

Meet your creek is an art project by Vaughn Bell, an artist who lives in the creek watershed. Create unique, hand-made postcards based on your observations and understanding of Longfellow Creek. You will get the chance to mail the postcard to a friend or loved one, or to donate it to the postcard archive which may be displayed in the community. Images of the postcards will be shared online at the Meet Your Creek blog.

Salmon: Look inside

You may know how a fish swims, but do you know how it eats, breathes, and reproduces? You’ll discover the swimming, eating, breathing, and reproducing systems—and you can touch them (if you want to)!

Nature Walk

Local naturalists will guide you through the park and open spaces on a flat, wide trail. See and learn about the creek, salmon, and the wide variety of plants and their historical uses.

Dine-out fundraiser benefiting refugees @ Mioposto
Nov 14 @ 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Admiral’s Mioposto is joining forces with World Relief Seattle on November 14 for a Dine Out event. From 4-10 pm, the open-flame pizzeria and Italian kitchen will donate a portion of the evening’s profits to the Kent-based organization that works to support and resettle immigrants and refugees from countries around the world.

As a part of their Pizza + Philanthropy initiative, Mioposto partners with local schools and non-profits for evenings of great food benefitting great causes. As the season of giving rolls around, Mioposto is inviting friends and neighbors to join them in support of a cause that means a lot to their team. Since 1979, World Relief Seattle has been providing immigrants and refugees from a variety of backgrounds with care and support through the first months and years of their transition. In addition to resettlement, World Relief Seattle provides English language training, immigration legal services, employment opportunities and training, as well as a loving community for the individuals and families that have left behind everything in their home country to begin again in the Northwest.

Stop by any of Mioposto’s four locations the evening of November 14 for what’s sure to be a special night. Happy hour runs from 4-6, and all delivery and pickup orders placed on Caviar will count towards the total donation. Mioposto West Seattle is located at 2139 California Ave SW.

Nighttime low-tide beach walks @ Constellation Park, Alki
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join trained volunteer Beach Naturalists at South Alki/Constellation Park on the following dates this year for a free guided exploration at very low tide.

Explore the beach during winter nighttime low tides with Beach Naturalist staff and volunteers. Discover what creatures we see on the beach at this time of year. Dress for the weather (bundle up!) and for tide pooling: boots, hats, gloves and a good flashlight are musts.

Sunday, January 28, 7 pm–9pm

Beach etiquette:
While on the beach, please remember:
~ Walk carefully; there’s life beneath your feet!
~ Touch gently with one wet finger.
~ Observe animals where they are and please avoid picking them up.
~ Please only move rocks that are small enough to be moved with one hand and return them to the position in which you found them.
~ Please only remove trash from the beach, nothing else. Many of our beaches are protected by law.

Leaders: Patty North, Anne Jacobs, and Dick Lazeres
Meeting Point: Southern-most Lincoln Park parking lot on Fauntleroy Way SW (8600 block of Fauntleroy Way SW)

Lincoln Park is in West Seattle near the Fauntleroy ferry dock. We will stroll the beach seeking good looks at waterfowl and wander the forest to discover winter residents. Great walk for beginners.

Arthur’s first anniversary
Mar 28 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 pm

The Admiral restaurant/bar will celebrate its first anniversary on March 28th!

We have been overwhelmed by the support of our neighbors, friends, and family and to celebrate we’ve organized a day of giving back. Please join us as we celebrate the exact date one year ago that we opened our doors — with $3.28 house red and white wines, $3.28 lamb and vegetarian sandwiches, and $3.28 Lagunitas beers. AND, Aussie meat pies! As we give back to the neighborhood and family that have been so kind to us over the past year, we would ask to extend that giving spirit to our neighbors who may need it more than us. Please bring a donation for the West Seattle Food Bank — food, diapers, clothes, etc. — and Arthur’s will match the donations in cash. Thank you so much for all the wonderful kindness and support over the past year—we are so happy to contribute to the amazing network of bars, restaurants, and retail spaces that make up the North Admiral district of West Seattle.
