Children’s Academy of Seattle open house
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Children’s Academy of Seattle, a Spanish-immersion preschool, is having an open house at their second West Seattle location on October 1st and October 8th, 10:00 am to noon:

Children’s Academy of Seattle
Spanish Immersion Program
Ages: 2 months to 5 years old

Date: Saturday October 1st and
Saturday October 8th

Hours: 10:00 am- Noon

Address: 9635 17th Ave SW, Seattle WA 98106.

The program at Children’s Academy of Seattle supports optimal Spanish-language learning by tying language to a broad range of day-to-day activities. Children learn language best by experiencing it naturally, by being immersed in it.

The benefits go beyond being bilingual. Exposure to another language, through immersion, provides cultural competency and sensitivity to others. Language immersion takes advantage of a child’s natural ability to rapidly acquire another language. At no time in life is this task easier than in early childhood.

Children’s Academy of Seattle believes that young children develop to their fullest potential when they are allowed to enjoy life at an unhurried pace. Our program focuses on imagination and creative work and play. Our center offers a rich curriculum and hands-on learning, science, and social skills.

Our staff has a minimum of five years teaching child development experience. Our high-quality program with experienced teachers ensures success in learning a second language.

White Crane Wellness open house (new ownership)
Oct 1 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

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.

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.

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

Duwamish Longhouse

It is the 8th Anniversary of the building of the first Duwamish Longhouse since the last one was burned down in West Seattle in 1894 to push the Duwamish off their land. In 1851, there were over 90 Duwamish Longhouses. Opened in 2009, the Longhouse is a traditional cedar post and beam structure designed in the Puget Salish Longhouse style. It houses a Native Art Gallery, Duwamish History Museum, Gift Shop, Duwamish Tribal Offices, and traditional Longhouse. As in ancient times, Longhouse is the site where tribal business is conducted and cultural & educational events are held.

Promised Land — Longhouse premiere of new Duwamish documentary.

This new documentary “Promised Land” revisits Chief Seattle’s Duwamish Tribe’s continuing struggle for justice in its own land. The filmmakers & Duwamish tribal leaders will be present for a brief discussion after the film to be followed by a reception.

PROMISED LAND is a social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they’ve long been denied. The film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty. Produced and directed by Vasant and Sarah Samudre Salcedo, and sponsored by 4Culture and San Francisco Film Society.

Promised Land debuted in select theaters fall 2016. It received an award for Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at the 10th Annual LA Skins Fest, and was an official selection for the 41st Annual American Indian Film Festival, Northwest Film Forum’s 19th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival, the 12th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, and the 5th Annual Social Justice Film Festival, among others.

More information about the film can be found at promisedlanddoc.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.

OPEN HOUSE: Little Pilgrim School, a program for children 2-5 years old

Sunday, February 12, 2017
11:00 am–1:30 pm

Celebrating more than 60 years of providing quality education in this community! Established in 1952, Little Pilgrim Preschool is nestled at the base of Fauntleroy Park in West Seattle. Our philosophy and purpose is to encourage the whole child – to help each to grow intellectually, spiritually, physically, creatively, socially and emotionally. Children enjoy a rich, play-based curriculum that not only prepares them for kindergarten, but also instills in them a lifelong love of learning. Whether we are finger painting, building with blocks, running on the playground or on a field trip to the neighborhood grocery, every experience is seen as a learning opportunity.

Bring the whole family to play, tour school spaces, meet the teachers, ask questions and pick up enrollment information for fall classes. For more information, please contact the Little Pilgrim School Director at (206) 932-5600, Lorrie@fauntleroyucc.org. www.littlepilgrim.org

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. 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

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.

Apr 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

WSHS ’13th Year Promise Scholarship’ Student Showcase @ West Seattle High School
May 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

West Seattle High School (WSHS) invites parents and community members to attend “Career Connections: A Student Showcase,” on Thursday May 25, from 6-8pm at WSHS’s The Commons.

Over 100 students from WSHS’s Career Tech Education Department will share their creations with parents, Seattle Public Schools administrators, South Seattle College (SSC) , (WSB Spsonsor) faculty and staff, and community members.

The WSHS Jazz Band will provide music and culinary students will provide food.

At 6:20 pm, WSHS Principal Ruth Medsker will address students and SSC’s Julius Moss, 13th Year Promise Scholarship assistant director, will share information on the college scholarship and how WSHS tech students can prepare to take part in the program.

West Seattle High School (WSHS) will hold their “Career Connections: A Student Showcase” event on Thursday, May 25, where students in the Career Tech Education Department will showcase their creations in professional and technical fields, ranging from IT to culinary arts and automotive technology. 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.

Lowman Beach seawall open house @ The Hall at Fauntleroy
May 31 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

We Need to Hear from You!

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to learn about the future of the Lowman Beach Park seawall. Please join us at the upcoming Open House. Lowman Beach Park is located at 7017 Beach Dr. SW, just north of Lincoln Park.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall is failing and needs to be removed or replaced. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over towards the water. It is Seattle Parks and Recreation’s goal to remove the remaining seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s.

We hired Environmental Science Associates (ESA) as a design consultant to undertake a feasibility study to look at options for removing the seawall, taking into consideration both the habitat benefits of the seawall removal and the coastal engineering ramifications of that seawall removal. Given the design constraints of the project, it is likely that the existing tennis court will remain in place. At this meeting we will present our background, analysis of the coastal processes (wind, waves, tides, sediment transport/littoral drift) and design options to gather community input.

Wed, May 31, 2017
Location: Hall at Fauntleroy
9131 California Ave SW
6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m.

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.

New Fire Station 32 open house
Nov 4 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Come see the new fire station! Public open house. Info added Oct. 31st:

The Seattle Fire Department and Seattle Fire Fighters Union, Local 27, invite the community to attend an Open House and Dedication at Fire Station 32 in West Seattle. The event will take place on Saturday, November 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 3715 SW Alaska Street. Community members will have the opportunity to tour the new station, meet their local firefighters, explore children’s activities, and enjoy refreshments.

Station 32 Background

Located in the center of West Seattle, the new Station 32 houses a battalion chief (Battalion 7), engine company (Engine 32), ladder truck (Ladder 11), and medic unit (Medic 32).

Fire Station 32 is one of 32 neighborhood fire stations undergoing upgrades, renovation or replacement through the Fire Facilities and Emergency Response Program which was approved by Seattle voters in 2003.

The old Station 32 (located in the same location), was approximately 40 years old and needed replacement. The building systems were old, and the station offered inadequate space for modern apparatus and staffing levels. The station was also out of regulatory compliance in many areas, and was structurally substandard for seismic survivability.

Given the old station’s condition and the capacity of the station to play a more central role in West Seattle, the Station was completely rebuilt at the existing location. As part of the rebuild, Station 32 received major improvements and became the lead station for Battalion 7, which covers all of West Seattle, southwest Seattle, Harbor Island and the industrial areas lining both sides of the Duwamish River.

The Fire Station 32 project was developed by the City of Seattle’s Department of Finance and Administrative Services, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and built by Howard S. Wright. Construction began in February 2016 and was completed in August 2017.

The artwork in front of the station, “Engine 32 1/2”, was designed and created by Sean Orlando. The artwork is a fabricated steel site-integrated sculpture, designed to inspire and reflect the surrounding community. “Engine 32 1/2” is a nod to West Seattle firefighters of the past, and an inspiration to the future firefighters of tomorrow.

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.

Highway 99 tunnel toll feedback meeting in West Seattle @ High Point Community Center
Jun 5 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The public process of setting toll rates for the State Route 99 tunnel is starting and the Washington State Transportation Commission is seeking public comment on toll rate options under consideration. Interested persons can provide comments to the commission at upcoming public meetings in Seattle or they can provide comments electronically …

The commission has spent more than a year studying and assessing all aspects of tolling the SR 99 tunnel, including various toll rate levels, possible toll exemptions, estimated traffic diversion to city streets, and effects of tolling on freight movement. Based upon this analysis, the commission has developed three possible toll rate options, on which it now wants the public to weigh in.

The Legislature made the decision to toll the tunnel in 2012 (RCW 47.56.862). The commission is charged with making sure tolls generate enough revenue to cover specific costs as required under the law, including toll operations, maintenance, and debt payments associated with the construction of the tunnel. In 2018, the Legislature directed that initial toll rates will not cover future repair and replacement costs, such as for the roadway and ventilation systems for the SR 99 tunnel. Proposed future toll rate increases would need to be re-evaluated if the Legislature determines these costs should be covered by toll revenue.

Toll Rate Options

The three toll rate options currently under consideration would be in effect from when tolling begins in 2019 through at least June 2020:

Option A:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.25.
There are four different toll rates over six time periods on weekdays.
Beginning in July 2022, toll rates increase 3 percent, every three years for all days of the week.

Option B:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.
There are four different toll rates over eight time periods on weekdays.
Beginning in July 2020, there will be annual toll rate increases of 3.5 percent for five years that will apply to the weekday rates only.

Option C:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.25.
There are five different toll rates over seven time periods on weekdays.
There are no toll rate increases during first five years of tolling. Then there are three toll rate increases of five percent each, taking place in July of 2024, 2029, and 2034, for all days of the week.

Public Comment Opportunities

The commission will hold public input meetings in early June in Seattle to gather comments on the three toll-rate options under consideration. The meetings are as follows:

(one in West Seattle)

· Tuesday, June 5

5:30 – 6:30 p.m.: Open house on tunnel project and tolling

6:30 – 8 p.m.: Public input meeting on tolling options

High Point Community Center, Multipurpose Room
6920 34th Ave. SW, Seattle

More information on the tolling options under consideration, and additional ways the public can comment, can be found on the commission’s web site under “pending actions” at: http://wstc.wa.gov/ The Transportation Commission is taking public comment on these tolling options until July 17. An official proposal will be announced in mid-July 2018, followed by an additional public comment period before toll rates are finalized in fall 2018.
