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

To RSVP: Email Kerry at kerry@pugetsoundkeeper.org or call (206) 297-7002.

Free class: Introduction to Digital Photography @ Southwest Library
Nov 5 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

3D Printing Basics – Part 2: Rhino 5 Lab @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Nov 13 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At the Delridge Library Sunday, November 13, 2016, 1–5 pm:

Learn how to design 3D models suitable for 3D printing using Rhino 5, a 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) software. This is day 2 of a 2-part class and you must attend both parts. Registration is required.

3D printing is becoming an essential tool in design and digital fabrication. Rhino 5 is one of the most powerful platforms for just about anything from industrial modeling and architecture to custom design, and prototype development and more.

This beginner’s class is a two-part series that will uncover the core processes behind 3D printing and introduce you to the basic concepts behind the 3D modeling tools of the Rhino software. You will learn computer-aided design (CAD) concepts, including NURBS curves, point clouds and polygon meshes. We’ll help you navigate the pitfalls of 3D design. You will be armed with approaches to 3D modeling to help you make your own small creation and turn your idea into reality. You will finish designing your 3D model and upload it to Intentional3D for printing.

Registration is required. You are registering for a two-part class that occurs August 8 and 9.

Upon completion of both parts, the library will provide a coupon that covers up to $25 for the cost of printing your 3D model. 3D print jobs will be sent to Intentional3D for printing and will be mailed to participants.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required. Register in person or call 206-733-9125.

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.

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.

Seeking Seattle’s Surviving Salamanders @ Camp Long
Feb 18 @ 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 we will probably now be able to see their 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 $0 – $20 per person, whatever is comfortable. While no cash is required, I ask that people support 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.

Natural Community Service and Admiration Stroll @ Fauntleroy Park
Feb 25 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

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

3D Printing Basics – Part 1 & 2: Intro to Rhino 5 @ High Point Library
Mar 4 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At the High Point Library Saturday, March 4 & 5th, 2017, 1–5 pm: Learn how to design 3D models suitable for 3D printing using Rhino 5, a 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) software. This is day 1 of a 2-part class and you must attend both parts. Registration is required.

3D printing is becoming an essential tool in design and digital fabrication. Rhino 5 is one of the most powerful platforms for just about anything from industrial modeling and architecture to custom design, and prototype development and more.

This beginner’s class is a two-part series that will uncover the core processes behind 3D printing and introduce you to the basic concepts behind the 3D modeling tools of the Rhino software. You will learn computer-aided design (CAD) concepts, including NURBS curves, point clouds and polygon meshes. We’ll help you navigate the pitfalls of 3D design. You will be armed with approaches to 3D modeling to help you make your own small creation and turn your idea into reality. You will finish designing your 3D model and upload it to Intentional3D for printing.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required. Please call the High Point Library (206-684-7454) to reserve your seat.

Upon completion of both parts, the library will provide a coupon that covers up to $25 for the cost of printing your 3D model. 3D print jobs will be sent to Intentional3D for printing and will be mailed to participants.

Class size is limited to 16 participants.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required. Register in person or call 206-733-9125.

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.

White Center Crab Feed fundraiser for Evergreen High School @ White Center Fraternal Order of the Eagles
Mar 4 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Are you a White Center resident? Are you an Evergreen High School alum or supporter? Here is a chance to make a tangible difference for students at Evergreen High School–for the price of a fresh crab dinner.

White Center community leaders are recharging the Evergreen Wolverine Booster Club. This is a crab feed by the community, for the community, to eat delicious food together, listen to live music by Island Soul, and–don’t miss this part–raise money to benefit the students of Evergreen High School.

White Center Crab Feed
Saturday, March 4, from 5–9 pm
White Center Fraternal Order of the Eagles

Music by Island Soul.

Tickets: $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
Contact Pat Thompson at (206) 349-8106 or email pvthompson206@hotmail.com

The three small schools on the Evergreen campus are unifying as Evergreen High School starting next fall. The Evergreen Wolverine Booster Club is a partnership of parents, teachers, coaches, and alumni coming together to support students. The club has been dormant for a number of years. “The Evergreen community and school staff are making a valiant attempt to revive a once active and proud booster club,” said Terri McMahan, director of athletics for Highline Public Schools.

Two of the organizers behind the effort to rebuild the booster club are longtime White Center residents Pat Thompson and Tyrone Curry.

“We are rallying this community to come together to support the students who attend Evergreen,” said Curry. “Let’s establish a consistent network of supporters, volunteers, and fundraisers to lift our own boat and pull together for the good of these young people and this neighborhood.”

It’s simple really. It starts with a crab feed. It isn’t cheap, but then fresh crab isn’t cheap either. “And what price do you put on helping to even the playing field–maybe literally–for the young people of our community?” asks Thompson. “We are White Center. We have strength and community power and alumni that have barely been tapped.” Make plans for a fun, local evening out with live music, succulent crab, and the vibrant White Center community that describes itself as “not so white and not so centered!” A longtime schools supporter, the White Center Eagles are donating the venue and have secured a donation of crab from Alaska.

Evergreen High School is reuniting as a community hub with increased opportunities, a personalized experience, dual language, strong extra-curricular programs, and a world-class education. It’s a perfect time to send a powerful message to the students and staff of this local high school: “We ALL belong, and we believe in you!”

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.

Deans from South Seattle College’s  professional and technical career training programs and 13th Year Promise Scholarship staff will attend the showcase to talk with students about their career aspirations and provide details on the scholarship.

South’s 13th Year Promise Scholarship, which provides one year of tuition-free college and college success support services to graduating seniors from area high schools, is expanding to include WSHS starting with their Class of 2018. South offers numerous professional and technical career training programs (in addition to academic transfer programs) that match up well with WSHS’s Career Tech Education Department.

“WSHS has an extensive Career Tech Education Department that approaches teaching and learning from hands-on, project-based instruction,” said Helen Maynard, Career Center Specialist at WSHS. “We are unique in the (Seattle Public Schools) District because we offer a variety of opportunities for students to identify and launch careers in the professional and technical fields such as CAD design, woodworking, culinary, IT, auto mechanics, photography, music, health and human services, and business.”

With the 13th Year Promise Scholarship becoming available to WSHS graduates in 2018 and beyond, students interested in professional and technical fields will have the opportunity to continue their training at South with their first year of tuition covered by the scholarship.

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.

Low-cost Life Jacket Sale @ Southwest Pool

From Seattle Parks and Recreation:

The sun is emerging from behind the clouds, the weather is getting warmer, and summer is just around the corner.

According to the Center for Disease Control, over 4,000 people drown each year in the United States, and among children between the ages of 1 and 14, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death.

Life jackets save lives, and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is partnering with Seattle Children’s Hospital, the National Safe Boating Council, and Mustang Survival to host low-cost life jacket sales at pool locations across Seattle. Attend one of six life jacket sales to buy discounted life jackets for you and your family. Infant and youth size life jackets are $20, adult sizes are $30, and families who qualify for SPR scholarships pay $10 for any life jacket size.

World’s Slowest Computer @ High Point Library
Jul 20 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

At the High Point library: Build a computer that processes information at “human speed,” using sponges and sticky notes. This exercise helps you understand the basic principles of computing through a fun, competitive activity.

Get ready to build a computer and compete against time! These computers use pen and paper for memory cells, a grid of kitchen sponges for a screen, participants’ minds and bodies as processing units, and a simple programming language as their instructions. In teams, learners build their computers by arranging their sponges and memory cells correctly. Each team will receive the same program to execute – in the form of stacks of printed code – with the goal of running the program correctly before the other team.

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