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

Author Readings @ C & P Coffee Company
Dec 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

At C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) on Saturday December 3rd, 7 pm–9 pm. More from C & P:

Join us for a two-part event! First, author Anna Redsand will read from To Drink From the Silver Cup: From Faith Through Exile and Beyond. Second, Ann Przyzycki, editor of Isthmus, a literary journal published in Seattle, will join Anna (a former contributor to the journal) in a dialog on publishing: what are the challenges of starting a publication or of finding a publisher for your book; what does an editor want in a publishable piece; what does an author want in a publisher? The audience will be invited to ask questions and share their comments and experiences.

To Drink from the Silver Cup: From Faith Through Exile and Beyond is about the author’s journey from a devout childhood and adolescence as the daughter of fundamentalist missionaries in the Navajo Nation, through leaving the church after discovering there would be no place for her there as a young lesbian. She spent the next forty years learning from other spiritual traditions, always longing for home. Eventually she embarked upon a deliberate experiment to see if she could find kinship in a faith community when she no longer believed much of what she had been taught. (www.annaredsand.com)

Isthmus is a print journal of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, published biannually in Seattle. Our goal is to produce a thoughtful, memorable reading experience that showcases a range of styles and perspectives. We hope to bring a little of Seattle to the world and a little of the rest of the world to Seattle. Founded in 2014, Isthmus has received three listings for Notable Essays and one listing for a Recognized Story in the Best American Series. (www.isthmusreview.com)

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.

Free Community Event: Young Storytellers Project @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Feb 3 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Chief Sealth International High School students will take the stage at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center to share their stories with the community. Come hear, connect, interact and support young people you might never otherwise meet! Stories, music, time to mingle. Bring a potluck dish to share if you can. Potluck at 6:30, stories begin at 7:00.

Friday February 3rd, 6:30-9:30 pm
Free Community Event: Young Storytellers Project

More:
Teachers at Chief Sealth International High School is working to support our students to hone their storytelling craft and bring it to the Youngstown Stage. We’re also getting help from Danielle K.L. Grégoire – pro story teller, educator and former program manager for The Moth (https://www.facebook.com/TheMoth/) for this event.

One thing that has always been important, perhaps even more now is to reach out and connect. What we know is that while so many communities share the same geography, we rarely actually connect. The lack of connections allows people to believe things about each other that is not true. It makes us vulnerable to fear, to implicit bias and to stereotypes. One of the most beautiful things about our Chief Sealth community is that we actually do connect – across race, across gender, across gender identity, across socioeconomic status, across age, across national origin and citizenship status. We want to share that with the wider community.

This event is different! Our young people will tell their personal stories – about 5 minutes each. Rather than this being a “story slam” we are working with Danielle Gregoire to pilot “messages of support.” Rather than being judged or scored, audience members will have a chance to write small notes about how they connected with the stories. These little love letters will be collected and given to the story tellers! What? Love, support connection between teenagers and adults in their community who might never have had the chance to connect? Isn’t that the world you want?

It’s also at the Youngtown Cultural Arts Center! The place was designed to create connection. If you’ve been there, you know what that feels like. If you haven’t, you’ll love it. And did you know that the “Thelma DeWitty” theater – where this event will be held, was named for the first African American School Teacher in the Seattle Public School District who, you guessed it, taught at the “Old Cooper School.” (okay, longer story but the Youngstown School was renamed “Cooper” for a while before we turned it back into “Youngstown” for its new life as a Cultural Arts Center). Come, bring some food, spend Friday night connecting with new and old friends, hearing stories, and supporting young people.

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.

All families and community members are invited to attend the 16th annual Book-It Page to Stage Residency at Chief Sealth International High School at 7pm on Thursday, February 9th. Freshmen in Mr. Azinger’s 9th grade classes will have spent 4 and a half weeks working with a teaching artist to stage and adapt student written poems.

After a week of on-your-feet, skills-based instruction, students work in groups to stage and adapt poems written by 9th graders from Ms. Griffin’s classes. Our students have truly grown as collaborators and thinkers as the initial reticence to work in groups was quickly replaced by a thoughtful exchange of ideas. The empathy and compassion that students show is delightful, even more so in that they are so focused on successfully presenting their adaptation of the poem. Please come enjoy the result of their hard work and growth on February 9th at 7 pm in the Auditorium at Chief Sealth International High School.

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.

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

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Enduring Conviction – Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Mar 3 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Professor Lorraine Bannai presents her new book, “Enduring Conviction – Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice” Friday, March 3rd at Barnes & Noble/Westwood for “Words, Writers & West Seattle”

Knowing that the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II was a fundamental denial of basic human rights, a young attorney, Lori Bannai, helped vindicate a Japanese American man who resisted F.D.R.’s Executive Order. She has now written a book about him, his wartime case, and how, decades later, he won a measure of justice for himself and the Japanese American community – Enduring Conviction: Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice (published by University of Washington Press (2015)).

Bannai combines insider knowledge of the case with extensive archival research, personal letters, and interviews with Korematsu, his family, and close friends. She uncovered the inspiring story of a humble, soft-spoken man who fought tirelessly against human rights abuses long after he was exonerated.

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society sponsors this free book-talk series on the ‘First Friday’ of each month. Lori’s presentation will take place at 5 pm, on Friday, March 3rd, 2017, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

After refusing to leave for incarceration when ordered, Korematsu was eventually arrested and convicted of a federal crime before being sent to the internment camp at Topaz, Utah. He appealed his conviction to the Supreme Court, which, in one of the most infamous cases in American legal history, upheld the wartime orders. Forty years later, Bannai was part of a team of young attorneys who reopened Korematsu’s case and cleared his conviction based on proof that the government suppressed, altered, and destroyed material evidence while prosecuting Korematsu during WWII. In 1998, President Bill Clinton awarded Korematsu the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Lori Bannai now the Director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality and a Professor of Lawyering Skills at Seattle University School of Law. Her parents and their families were incarcerated in a camp in World War II. She has lived in West Seattle for 24 years and has raised her two children there.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next book-talk is scheduled for April 7th and will feature Judy Bentley and her book, “Hiking Washington’s History”, focusing on areas around the Duwamish River. For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at 206-280-9983 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

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.

Seattle Reads: Meet Author Angela Flournoy @ Southwest Library
May 10 @ 12:30 pm – 1:40 pm

Come meet Angela Flournoy and join in a discussion about Flournoy’s novel, “The Turner House”with the writer and other readers .

Flournoy will also discuss “The Turner House,” take audience questions and sign books : From 12:30 p.m. to 1:40 p.m. Wednesday, May 10 at the Southwest Branch, 9010 35th Ave. S.W.

Note: The Library will open at its regular Sunday time of 1 p.m. The West Seattle Branch Meeting Room only will open at 11:30 a.m. for this event.

ABOUT ‘THE TURNER HOUSE’

“The Turner House” is a compelling consideration of the price we pay for our dreams and the ways in which our families bring us home. Growing up in California, author Angela Flournoy often visited Detroit where her father grew up. The fiction she read never depicted the experiences of people like her family – working class African-Americans who made up the majority of the city. “The Turner House” explores this American story. “The Turner House” was a finalist for the National Book Award, was shortlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction, nominated for an NAACP Image Award and named a New York Times Notable Book of 2015.

ABOUT ANGELA FLOURNOY

Flournoy is the author of “The Turner House” and a 5 Under 35 honoree by the National Book Foundation. Her fiction has appeared in The Paris Review and she has written for The New York Times, the New Republic and the Los Angeles Times. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Flournoy has taught at the University of Iowa and The Writer’s Foundry at St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn.

ABOUT SEATTLE READS

Seattle Reads was the first citywide reading program of its kind in the country and is designed to deepen engagement in literature through reading and discussion. This year’s 2017 Seattle Reads program is made possible by The Seattle Public Library Foundation and The Wallace Foundation, with additional support from media sponsors The Seattle Times and KUOW 94.9 Public Radio and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

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.

Her books have been nominated for twelve state children’s choice awards and been recognized by the Children’s Book Council, Oprah’s Book Club, and Kirkus Reviews (Best Children’s Books of the Year). Her latest is Cleo Edison Oliver in Persuasion Power about an irresistible 10-year-old entrepreneur. Cleo is one of ten books in Seattle Public Library’s 2017 Global Reading Challenge. Sundee lives in Renton.

Kazu Kibuishi is the writer and artist of the New York Times bestselling AMULET graphic novel series, published by Scholastic. He is also the editor/art director/cover artist of the EXPLORER and FLIGHT Comic Anthologies, and is the cover illustrator of the Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Edition paperbacks from Scholastic. His debut graphic novel, Daisy Kutter: The Last Train, won a YALSA Best Books for Young Adults Award. Born in Tokyo, Japan, Kazu moved to the U.S. with his mother and brother when he was a child. He graduated from Film Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2000, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. He currently works as a full-time graphic novelist. Kazu lives near Seattle, Washington with his wife and two children.

Saturday, October 28th, 9:00-10:30 am

Learn about lesser-known West Seattle trails in the West Duwamish greenbelt, the largest urban forest in Seattle! Everyone and all ages are welcome. Parts of the trails are graveled and well-constructed; other parts are not formally maintained, so come prepared for possible muddy patches. This interesting hike is an approximately 3 mile loop that will take about 90 minutes to complete. The trailhead is across from Pioneer Industries on the north side of Highland Park Way SW, just 100 feet west (uphill) from its junction with West Marginal Way SW.

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.

A reading by Steve Adelson ‘Apocalypse at Little Bighorn-The Demise of a Culture’ @ C&P Coffee Co.
Nov 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Veteran Park Ranger, author and documentary producer Steve Adelson presents a reading: “Apocalypse At Little Bighorn -The Demise Of A Culture”.

This coffee house presentation will examine the erosion of the native Sioux and Cheyenne culture that culminated at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, later to become legendarily know as “Custer’s Last Stand”. In reality, it was not only his last stand, but the last gasp of Indian resistance against Euro-American encroachment on the northern plains.

Adelson will be examining this epic confrontation and the characters and events that shaped this story. A story that still haunts the American consciousness even today.

The lives of Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Gall, Major Marcus Reno and Captain Frederick Benteen are some of the individuals highlighted in the discussion.

Adelson, a West Seattle graduate, is a prolific writer and his book “Little Bighorn; Voices From A Distant Wind” will be available for purchase. In addition, his documentary, “Contested Ground” is included with an autographed copy of the book.

Adelson has presented to thousands of visitors at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in southeast Montana. He has been a lecturer on the History Channel, C-Span, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel and other media productions.
You can examine his work at his website.

Martial arts tournament to benefit Puerto Rico @ Evergreen Tang Soo Do Academy
Nov 11 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

On behalf of Evergreen Tang Soo Do Academy, I would like to invite you to a fundraiser we are having on November 11th, 2017.

Every year, Evergreen Tang Soo Do Academy hosts a martial arts tournament and donates proceeds to a charity. In years past we have donated to Susan G Komen foundation for breast cancer research. Evergreen Tang Soo Do is a member of the World Tang Soo Do Association, which has over 150,000 members in 38 countries worldwide. Our organization has several schools in Puerto Rico with 100s of students and families. I am personal friends with many of the instructors there. Many of these students and instructors in Puerto Rico lost their homes and studios. We are dedicating our tournament this year to helping them by donating 100% of the proceeds directly to them. The event details are below. Any exposure/support you can provide would be greatly appreciated. There is a $5 charge at the door for spectators to come and watch the competitions.

Alizah Olivas trunk show @ CAPERS
Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Dec 16-17, Alizah Olivas Trunk Show. Meet this local jewelry artist in person and select from fine silver and semi-precious stone necklaces and earrings.

Local jewelry artisan Alizah Olivas will be at CAPERS Dec 16, 10 am-6 pm and Dec 17, 9:30am-5pm, selling her beautiful silver and gemstone pieces – perfect for a special lady on your holiday list!

“Alizah’s pieces speak to so many of our customers,” said CAPERS owner Lisa Myers. “In fact, one of our clients snapped a photo of a beautiful silver necklace she wanted and sent her husband back to buy it for Christmas!”

A West Seattleite born and reared in White Center, Olivas began creating jewelry about 10 years ago. With support from her husband, family and friends, she has been learning and crafting jewelry ever since, attracting many collectors in the area.

“Whether it's a new gemstone I’ve found, a new shape I want to create, or a combination of the two, making each new piece is simply fun. If I’m smiling when I’m done with a piece, I’m hoping you’ll be smiling while wearing it,” said the proud lab owner of George and Gracie, who keep her company while she works.

Silver has always been Olivas’ favorite metal to wear and work with.

“The bright reflectiveness makes me happy and adding semi-precious stones only makes it better. Hopefully, my jewelry brings a brightness to your day,” shared Olivas.

For more, stop by CAPERS in-store at 4525 California Avenue Southwest in West Seattle, see our December calendar of events or visit www.alizahsjewelry.com.

Kerri Kokias reading during Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool Bookfair @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Jan 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

My picture book, Snow Sisters! came out with Knopf/Random House earlier this month. I have several West Seattle events/story times scheduled that I’m hoping you might help share with our community.

The first is at Barnes and Noble this Sunday, January 21st at 11:00am. It’s part of a book fair/fundraiser for Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool, where my children both attended school before moving on to elementary school at West Seattle Montessori. I will lead a winter themed story time and craft, and a portion of every game, book, or treat purchase will be donated to the school. Community members are encouraged to shop and support Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool through the weekend, even if they can’t make the story time. As long as we are promoting the book fair, and bringing in business to Barnes and Noble, it is not necessary for community members to be part of the school to help with this fundraiser. Simply share the book fair ID number 12310967 at checkout. And of course, everyone is welcome at the story time! https://stores.barnesandnoble.com/event/9780061910635-0

I will also be doing a story time at West Seattle Library on Wednesday, January 24th at 10:30 am and at Southwest Library on Thursday, February 15th at 10:30 am.

Snow Sisters! By Kerri Kokias and Teagan White
ISBN 97811019388836
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 2, 2018

Just like snowflakes, no two sisters are alike, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work together to make the perfect snow day! A heartwarming sibling story.

When snowflakes fall, two sisters react very differently. One is excited and the other is wary. The first sister spends the morning outdoors, playing until she’s all tuckered out. Meanwhile, the second sister stays indoors, becoming ever more curious about the drifts outside. Soon, they switch places, and spend the second half of the day retracing each other’s footsteps. But each sister puts her own unique spin on activities like sledding, baking and building.

The simple mirrored text is spare and lovely, and each spread is split to show what each sister is doing independently–until at last they come together in the sweet, satisfying conclusion. LeUyen Pham’s Big Sister, Little Sister meets Kate Messner’s Over and Under the Snow.

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.

WordsWest Literary Series presents Elizabeth Bradfield and Lyanda Lynn Haupt @ C & P Coffee Company
Feb 21 @ 7:00 pm

“Loving the World from Starlings to Shorelines”
with Elizabeth Bradfield and Lyanda Lynn Haupt
Favorite Poem by Reading Partners Seattle
7:00 pm, Wednesday, February 21, 2018, C & P Coffee Company, 5612 California Ave. SW

Better than candy hearts, this February WordsWest Literary Series welcomes naturalists Elizabeth Bradfield and Lyanda Lynn Haupt for “Loving the World from Starlings to Shorelines,” an evening of crucial writing about our inner impulses and our relationships with the environment at large.

WordsWest Literary Series is grateful for grant funding from Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and Poets & Writers, Inc. that allows us to pay our writers for their time and talent.

Elizabeth Bradfield is the author of the poetry collections Once Removed, Approaching Ice, and Interpretive Work. Her poems and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, West Branch, Orion and many anthologies. She has been awarded a Stegner Fellowship, the Audre Lorde Prize, and was a finalist for the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. Founder and editor-in- chief of Broadsided Press, she lives on Cape Cod, works as a naturalist locally as well as on expedition ships in the high latitudes, and teaches creative writing at Brandeis University.

Lyanda Lynn Haupt is a naturalist, eco-philosopher and speaker whose writing connects people with nature in their everyday lives. Her newest book is Mozart’s Starling. Lyanda’s previous books include Crow Planet: Essential Wisdom from the Urban Wilderness, winner of the 2010 Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award, and Rare Encounters with Ordinary Birds, winner of the 2002 Washington State Book Award. Her writing has also appeared in Utne, LA Times, Image, and other publications. Lyanda has created educational programs for Seattle Audubon and researched seabirds in the remote tropical Pacific. She lives in Seattle with her husband, daughter, and Carmen the starling.

Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On February 21st, we welcome a favorite poem from Reading Partners Seattle, which mobilizes volunteers to provide students at under-resourced schools with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw, and this season’s intern/co-curator is Joannie Stangeland.

‘The Fabrications’

SAT 5.19.18 C & P COFFEE 4 pm

WHEN BLOCH, a popular London novelist, starts writing a fictionalized story featuring his unremarkablr friend Oscar, the invented details from the story start to come true. Gradually, Oscar embarks on a surreal odyssey into fame, while Bloch descends into the dark places of his soul. Oscar falls in love with
Najette, a bewitching painter, but their relationship hangs in the balance as his myth balloons out of all proportion. At the centre of the hype and spin stands the demon-like publicist Ryan Rees, whose power enables him to manufacture the truth, and the story builds to an unforgettable, startling climax…

Low-cost Life Jacket Sale @ Southwest Pool
Jun 9 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

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. Soon, many community members will be drawn to pools, beaches, and water sports across the region. And as water recreation increases, water safety becomes especially important. 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.

Favorite Poem & Summer Reading Table by Page 2 Books

SPECIAL KIDS NIGHT 6 PM START TIME

Kick off school’s end and the start of summer reading season with acclaimed authors Suzanne Selfors and Dana Simpson in a magical evening for kids and the adults they bring with them.

Suzanne Selfors is a national best-selling author who writes for kids of all ages. She’s received five Junior Library Guild awards and earned starred reviews from Kirkus, School Library Journal, Library Media Connection and Publisher’s Weekly. The Sasquatch Escape won the WA State Book Award and was an Amazon Best Children’s Book. Suzanne’s most recent books are Wedgie and Gizmo vs. the Toof (2018) from Harper Collins/Katherine Tegan Publishers and Spirit Riding Free: Lucky and the Mustangs of Miradero (2017) from DreamWorks/Little Brown. The animated series, Spirit Riding Free, is on Netflix. Though her books can be found all over the world, Suzanne lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest where she hopes it is her destiny to write stories forever after.

Dana Claire Simpson, a native of Gig Harbor, Washington, first caught the eyes of devoted comics readers with the internet strip Ozy and Millie. After winning the 2009 Comic Strip Superstar contest, she developed the strip Phoebe and Her Unicorn (originally known as Heavenly Nostrils), which is now syndicated in over 200 newspapers worldwide. There are five book collections: Phoebe and Her Unicorn, Unicorn on a Roll, Unicorn vs. Goblins, Razzle Dazzle Unicorn, and Unicorn Crossing, and a graphic novel, The Magic Storm. Simpson’s books have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list, and have won the Washington State Book Award and the Pacific Northwest Book Award. She lives with her husband and her cat in Santa Barbara, California.

The Favorite Poem Project, a vital part of WordsWest’s monthly literary events, invites a community member to share a favorite poem and information about his or her organization. On June 20, we welcome the Summer Reading Table and a favorite poem read by Jenny Cole from indie bookstore Page 2 Books.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw, and this season’s intern/co-curator is Joannie Stangeland. Grant funding from Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and Poets & Writers, Inc. allows WordsWest to pay featured writers for their time and talent.

‘Waiting to Derail’ Book Reading and Signing with Thomas O’Keefe – Free & All-Ages @ Easy Street Records
Aug 3 @ 7:00 pm

At Easy Street Records in The Junction:

Long before the Grammy nominations, sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall, and Hollywood friends and lovers, Ryan Adams fronted a Raleigh, North Carolina, outfit called Whiskeytown. Lumped into the burgeoning alt-country movement, the band soon landed a major label deal and recorded an instant classic: Strangers Almanac. That’s when tour manager Thomas O’Keefe met the young musician. For the next three years, Thomas was at Ryan’s side: on the tour bus, in the hotels, backstage at the venues. Packed with behind-the-scenes road stories, and, yes, tales of rock star debauchery, Thomas O’Keefe’s new book, “Waiting to Derail: Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown, Alt Country’s Brilliant Wreck” provides a firsthand glimpse into Ryan Adams at the most meaningful and mythical stage of his career. Join us for a special author reading & signing event on 8/3. Free & all ages!

25th anniversary of The Boot @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Aug 9 @ 6:00 pm

Each summer, a new group of young writers hones their craft through Southwest Youth & Family Services’ innovative program called Young Writers Workshop or “The Boot.” The program is designed for youth who may be low income or immigrants to express themselves and share their experiences of family, loss, hardship and love through poetry and verse.

“Poetry is my alliance. Not only speaking but creating, together penetrating that blank spot in your mind, the doubt…”
– Poetry by Puao Savusa, The Boot – 2011

But The Boot, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is much more than a poetry workshop. The ten-week intensive writing program allows students to earn high school credit for their participation and to receive a stipend for their work. This is made possible with funding from the City of Seattle Summer Youth Employment Program and the Department of Education and Early Learning.

The poems and short stories they write are then published and presented to their family, friends, and community. When The Boot began in 1993 it established that, “The Boot [magazine] is for, by and about youth. Featuring poetry, essays and short stories, the writers and editorial staff, most of whom are high school dropouts, focus their work around personal experiences and life on the ‘streets.’ ” The name was originally chosen by participants since they felt they had been “booted” out of school. The classroom where the workshop still take place has held moments of laughter and moments of silence to honor students who were lost.

On August 9th, 2018, Southwest Youth & Family Services will host a night of poetry and storytelling by the 2018 Boot writers and honor the history of the program as presented by the founding facilitator, Andrew Epstein and past participants. Doors open at 6pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW). Although the event is free, SWYFS asks guests to register at https://bit.ly/2m4R51I

Haunted Hike @ Kiwanis Schoenwald Park
Oct 13 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

Southwest Stories: Washington At War – The Evergreen State In World War I @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Nov 18 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Presented by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society:

Public historian Lorraine McConaghy offers a “Readers’ Theater,” where audience members participate in reading a script out aloud on “Washington at War: The Evergreen State in World War I.”

Lorraine McConaghy begins the program with an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes before offering a “Readers’ Theater,” a script that is read aloud together, allowing participants to speak the history they are discovering. The script includes excerpts from newspapers, diaries, writings, speeches and correspondence, and is based on extensive research in primary source material focused on the war’s impact on Washington – and how Washington impacted the war. The reading covers the period 1914-1919. Lorraine will tailor her remarks to West Seattle, on the Great War home front.

Lorraine McConaghy is a public historian. At the Museum of History & Industry and Washington State History Museum, her work as historian and curator has dealt with Washington at war during the Treaty War of 1855-56, the Civil War, World War I, and World War II.

This talk is presented by Humanities Washington, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, and The Seattle Public Library. It is part of Southwest Stories, a series offering monthly presentations on the history of West Seattle and the Duwamish Peninsula on the third Sundays at the five branches in West Seattle.

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