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

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

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

Interesting history of the park here.

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

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

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

Did You Know?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Birds and Habitats Hike @ Soundway Park
Apr 12 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

From Nature Consortium:

Starting in April, we’re introducing a new series of community events in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. On our guided forest hikes, you can explore our local parks and trails in a fun, educational, and family-friendly group. Each hike will center on a different theme or activity, including wildlife, scavenger hunts, plant systems, fitness, and more.

Birds and Habitats: Learn how birds benefit from our restoration efforts and see or hear who is singing and who is nesting at Soundway and maybe who is stopping in West Seattle during migration. The bird walk will be led by Mike Witter of Audubon Neighborhood Bird Project, an experienced birder who is familiar with birding by ear as well as the habitats offered in the greenbelt. Come rain or shine. Bring appropriate outdoor clothing and binoculars if you have them. Sunday, April 12, 8-10 am at Soundway Park (14th Ave SW & SW Holly St, Seattle)

Apr 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Providence Mount St. Vincent invites the public to attend a mass to celebrate the naming of its chapel in honor of William Pigott’s visionary commitment, legacy of faith, service and sacrificial giving. The mass will begin at 11 am on April 26, 2015 in the chapel at Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave. SW, Seattle. The Very Reverend Paul Magnano will preside.

The event will honor William Pigott and Ann P. Wyckoff, long-time supporters of Providence Mount St. Vincent. “It’s an honor to continue my grandfather’s legacy,” Wyckoff said about naming the William Pigott Chapel in honor of her grandfather. In 1924, Pigott and five other lead donors partnered with the Sisters of Providence to raise the needed funds to build St. Vincent Home for the Aged, today called Providence Mount St. Vincent. Together they held the vision that a just society must plan for and provide care for its elders. The building was dedicated on April 26, 1924.

The mass will include a performance of an original score by Grammy-winning film, television and symphony composer Mateo Messina, who throughout his life has visited many Sisters of Providence and “The Mount” while his mother worked there, and where she receives care today. In gratitude, Messina joins in honoring William Pigott and Ann Wyckoff.

On that day in Rome, the Vatican will release the first comprehensive Catholic moral statement on creation care and climate change to the faithful around the world.

You are invited to gather with the larger Catholic community of the region, ecumenical faith leaders, our neighbors, and those who have worked tirelessly in the Northwest to protect God’s creation. We will honor the Holy Father’s call to protect Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, and the most vulnerable of God’s children.

7 pm Celebration of Praised Be in words and song

8 pm Closing and commissioning of all people to take action to protect the Earth

The words of Pope Francis are timely in the Northwest as glaciers melt, drought deepens, and fossil fuel projects threaten not only Native communities, the poor, and local ecosystems, but all of us. In this kairos moment in the world, let us come together in hope and go out in action as we live into Pope Francis’ call to care for the Earth. Please join us!

If These Walls Could Talk: tour of the ‘Daddy’ Standley home
Jun 28 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society presents:
“If These Walls Could Talk” tour on Sunday, June 28, featuring the home of “Daddy” Standley, founder of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop.

A century ago, the home at 1750 Palm Ave. S.W. probably was the most gawked-at, talked-about residence in West Seattle.

“Everybody wanted to see it,” says 90-year-old Joe James, whose grandfather “Ye Olde Curiosity Shop” founder Joseph Edward ‘Daddy’ Standley built the house in 1906. Sightseeing buses used to stop there on their tours and let people out to look at the yard. He had everything in there you could think of, from whale jawbones to whale vertebrae to totem poles to shell mounds.

On Sunday, June 28, 2015, the home will be the site of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society’s third annual “If These Walls Could Talk” home tour, to run from 3 to 5 pm. Tickets, available at the door, are $10 for members, $15 for non-members.

Attendees will have an opportunity to tour the residence (now owned by Katy and Erik Walum), view historical photographs of the house and property and learn about the remarkable life of Standley.

In addition, they will see a selection of curios and family keepsakes on loan from the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, including a variety of Indian baskets, a 3-foot totem that greeted shop visitors in the early 1900s, and an antique cradle that has rocked five generations of Standley children.

They also will be able to meet Joe James, his son Andy and other members of the Standley clan, who for 116 years have welcomed curiosity-seekers at their iconic Seattle waterfront store.

Those who would like an invitation-only VIP experience earlier in the day, including presentations by Joe James and King County Archives’ Greg Lange, plus hors d’oeuvres and wine, please call 206-938-5293 or e-mail clay.eals@loghousemuseum.info.

‘Meditation and Transforming the Mind’ class @ SoundYoga
Nov 8 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

At Sound Yoga (WSB sponsor):

“Meditation and Transforming the Mind” a talk by Buddhist Monk Gen Khedrub at Sound Yoga, on Sunday, November 8, 11:00 am–12:30 pm.

Meditation is not only a simple and healthy way to relax and deal with stress, but it can also be a powerful tool for deeply transforming our mind and our habits. Buddha taught that all our suffering arises from delusions in our mind – moments of anger, jealousy, desirous attachment and self-grasping ignorance. This special event with Gen Khedrub will focus on the basics of meditation and then on how we can develop our practice of meditation so that it becomes a tool for finding deep and lasting inner peace, real liberation from our delusions.

$10 ($5 for students/seniors). Registration is not required, please just drop in!

Celebration of First RainWise Mosque in Seattle @ Hope Academy and Alnoor Mosque
Nov 20 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

ECOSS, Hope Academy and Alnoor Mosque are celebrating the first rain garden and cistern project at a mosque in Seattle and raising awareness about water quality.

The completion of this community teaching tool will be celebrated on Friday, November 20th, 11 am–1:30 pm, with festivities open to the public – including a ribbon cutting, garden tours and refreshments. While the primary goals of the project are environmental stewardship and flood prevention, this demonstration project also serves to educate students and community members.

The two rain gardens and four cisterns will divert rainwater from the large roof of the mosque (over 5500 sq. feet), keeping that water out of the combined sewer, which helps water quality downstream. It also provides both the Somali and White Center communities the opportunity to learn about and be involved with water quality solutions. Community members were also interested in resolving basement flooding issues from old downspouts around the historic brick building, as well as beautifying the landscape with flowers. High resolution photos of the project are available upon request.

For two years, ECOSS guided the mosque through the project by coordinating logistics, interpretation, troubleshooting issues such as old plumbing and drainage, teaching the students and staff about water topics, and engaging the community members in planning, plant selection, and work parties. The project was completed in June 2015 and the community is now developing a maintenance plan with teachers and students for regular checking, weeding and watering of the rain gardens.

“It’s been especially rewarding to have the community so involved in the project,” said King County Wastewater Treatment Division Director Pam Elardo. “We hope it inspires more young people to think about environmental career opportunities in the operations, science and technology fields.”

ECOSS collaborated with Seattle Public Utilities and King County on technical support, grants and RainWise rebates, which were provided by the City of Seattle. Additional funding was provided by the Russell Family Foundation and Google.

Hope Academy and Alnoor Mosque are located at 9421 18th Ave SW in the White Center neighborhood. The private school and mosque serves primarily Somali and other East African populations, although the mosque is open to all Muslims.

RainWise is a partnership program of Seattle Public Utilities and King County that offers rebates to property owners for rain gardens and cisterns which help to reduce polluted runoff and combined sewer overflows. A rain garden is a bowl shaped garden filled with spongy soil and hearty plants, designed to capture rainwater and cleans it before it enters our waterways or groundwater, and reduces the amount of water flowing into combined sewers or storm drains. Cisterns are large barrels that collects roof water, also reduce runoff, and the harvested water can be used for watering in the summer. To learn more visit www.700milliongallons.org.

Since 1994, ECOSS has engaged businesses and diverse communities with sustainable solutions for all on key environmental issues. ECOSS is the most effective organization in the region at engaging diverse communities in pollution prevention and other environmental solutions, with staff that speak 21 languages. ECOSS’ work revolves around working together to create a cleaner, healthier and economically thriving Puget Sound. Visit www.ecoss.org for more information.

Celebrate new RainWise rain garden installations in WS @ (See listing)
Dec 12 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join West Seattle neighbors who are helping to control water pollution with RainWise rain gardens on Saturday, Dec. 12 from 10 to 11 am. There will be a celebration, ribbon-cutting and touring of RainWise rain gardens and cisterns:

Come celebrate with the six families on the blocks of Sullivan and Tillman Streets of West Seattle who are helping solve water pollution by sending the rain that falls on their roofs into RainWise rain gardens and cisterns.

Bring the whole family, rain or shine, and enjoy the festivities, refreshments and tour of the neighborhood. The ribbon-cutting celebration will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12, at 10 am at 3731 S.W. Tillman St. in West Seattle and be followed by a tour of seven rain garden and cistern installations.

“My neighbors gathered for an introduction to the RainWise program and it was no surprise that several were interested,” said Elliott Night, a Sullivan Street neighbor and leader who made this cluster of RainWise installations happen. “It’s a way to beautify our yards with rain gardens, save water with cisterns, and reduce pollution in one of Seattle’s most valuable assets–our waterways. With the rebate program it really is a win-win-win.”

These homes have collectively installed six new RainWise rain gardens and two cisterns. All together, these RainWise installations will collect the rain that falls on 5,840 square feet of roof area. This will keep nearly 80,000 gallons of stormwater out of the sewer system each year. Home Grown Organics, the RainWise contractor for the entire cluster, will lead a tour of nearby installations and offer advice on selecting plants and attracting pollinators.

RainWise is a joint program of Seattle Public Utilities and King County Wastewater Treatment Division.

Over 50,000 properties in Seattle are eligible for RainWise rebates. Program experts King County will be available at this event to answer questions about eligibility for rebates that may cover up to 100 percent of the cost to install a cistern or rain garden in certain parts of Seattle. (Take a virtual tour online at
http://www.kingcounty.gov/services/environment/wastewater/cso/rainwise/virtual-tour.aspx)

Besides being pretty, rain gardens help control stormwater, a significant source of pollution in Puget Sound and the Duwamish River.

By controlling stormwater, people can support city and county goals to control overflows of sewage and stormwater that occur in these waterways during heavy rains.

Additional information, including a complete list of workshops and events where people can learn more about RainWise, is available at www.rainwise.seattle.gov

“Rejuvenating our Souls” @ St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church
Dec 12 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

“You were born to walk with God…So why would you walk alone?”
– Dr. Steve McSwain

On the afternoon of December 12 from 1:30-4:30, join St. John’s for a way-point in the middle of the Advent season. For a few hours, rest in quiet, make space for the Holy, and engage in quiet activities (suggestions will be offered and some materials provided.) This season of waiting and expectant anticipation can often incite chaos, anxiety, and sadness within our hearts. In the ninth century, Paschasius Radbertus wrote of one of the ancient names for Mary: Star of the Sea. He offered that Mary is a guide to be followed on the way to Christ “lest we capsize amid the storm-tossed waves of the sea.”

On December 12, let’s savor the afternoon together as a respite from the sometimes turbulent times of the march from Advent to Christmas and rejuvenate our souls together so we may more fully engage the excitement of Incarnation during the remaining weeks leading to Christmas.

Rejuvenating our Souls:
December 12th, 1:30-4:30 pm
St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church

$10 suggested donation for non-members. Please RSVP to mcarroccino@sjbwestseattle.org or by calling St. John’s at 206-937-4545.

Fred Talks series: Hanukkah stories @ Alki UCC/Kol HaNeshamah
Dec 12 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Per Kol HaNeshamah, their next “FRED Talk”:

Essayist, poet and award-winning storyteller Merna Ann Hecht will share an evening of Jewish stories taken from the treasure troves of both Eastern European and Sephardic tradition, Saturday evening, Dec. 12, beginning at 8 pm at West Seattle’s Kol HaNeshamah progressive reform synagogue community.

Listen to Hecht as she draws from Jewish tales of wisdom, stories of the great teaching rabbis and Hanukkah lore. This lively evening is slated for listeners ages nine to 99.

“In our digital age, storytelling transports us back to a slower, gentler time,” Hecht says. “The stories I will share are a celebration of the light and hope of Hanukkah, and speak to the love of storytelling that is woven into Jewish history and tradition.”

Hecht, the recipient of the 2008 National Storytelling Network Brimstone Award for Applied Storytelling, is also the founder and co-director of the Stories of Arrival: Refugee and Immigrant Youth Voices Poetry project at Foster High School in Tukwila, WA. She teaches creative writing, humanities and social justice courses for the University of WA, Tacoma.

Hecht is part of an ongoing series of FRED or Fresh Relevant Educational and Dynamic talks at Kol HaNeshamah, 6115 SW Hinds in West Seattle. The talks feature members from the progressive synagogue who share topics or skills they have with the community.

The suggested donation for the evening is $18 for adults, $12 for seniors and students. FRED Talks series is part of Kol HaNeshamah’s Annual Giving Campaign. KHN is a registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.

‘Jazz Sunday’ service @ Admiral Congregational Church UCC
Apr 3 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

West Seattle’s Admiral Congregational Church invites the entire community to join them for their joyful annual post-Easter celebration, Jazz Sunday, on Sunday April 3, 10:30 am.

Now in its twelfth year, this exuberant celebration takes place during the 10:30 service in the church’s sanctuary. Admiral’s director of music, pianist/organist Keith Terhune, is a well-known fixture on the local jazz scene and created this annual event “to inspire us to continue celebrating, even after Easter is over,” says church member Anita Shaffer. “Every year, the worship service following Easter Sunday is jazz-inspired and music-filled, often with Seattle jazz celebrities adding to the experience.”

Joining Terhune and the Admiral Choir this year will be renowned vocal stylist Makini Magee, bassist Mike Eytcheson, and percussionist Mike Bayer, local legends all on the Seattle music scene. All three have performed with legends ranging from Winton Marsalis to Roy Ayers.

Admiral Congregational is a member of the United Church of Christ, a progressive Protestant denomination that consistently champions engaged spiritual practice and informed social
participation. Their website says that they “actively welcome all peoples, regardless of their sex, sexuality, gender identity, social location, economic or immigration status, theology or history.”

Adds Shaffer, “So what if Easter is over for another year? Wear your Easter hat anyway and join us!”

Admission is of course free and the public is warmly invited.

Catio Tour Seattle
May 21 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Two West Seattle locations are part of this year’s Catio Tour:

After a successful debut tour in 2015, Catio Tour Seattle is back. On Saturday, May 21, 2016 (noon-4 pm) more cat-loving communities will showcase their inspiring backyard transformations, which help keep their feline friends safe and their neighborhoods a haven for wildlife.

Catios are enclosed patios for cats – a space where they can enjoy the sights and smells of the great outdoors, and stay protected from busy roads and wild predators.

Window box or freestanding, DIY or custom design, catios are a growing trend in the US – popular not only for the safe enrichment they offer their feline residents but for the added protection they provide for birds and wildlife.

From Bothell to West Seattle, this year’s tour features 11 catios of all shapes and sizes. Tour participants can choose to visit some or all of the locations, and along the way they’ll have the opportunity to talk to catio owners as well as meet the lucky felines who enjoy these safe outdoor spaces. The event is sponsored by PAWS, Catio Spaces and The Humane Society of the United States.

There is a suggested donation of $10 to help support education programs at PAWS. All additional proceeds from this fun event benefit animals in need at PAWS.

A tour map, addresses and catio information will be provided to all registered participants prior to the event.

Melissa Moore, education manager at PAWS, says “We’re thrilled to be back with this fun event. Catio Tour Seattle is not only about showcasing some of the best feline real estate Seattle has to offer. It’s also about promoting something that is very close to our heart here at PAWS – a source of healthy outdoor enrichment for cats that ultimately keeps our wildlife safe too.”

Registration happens at catiotourseattle.com.

Ancient Local Plant and Animal Community Recovery Workshop and Tour @ Orchard St Ravine
May 28 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join Naturalist Stewart Wechsler (of Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures) on Saturday, May 28th, 10:00 am–2:00 pm for an Ancient Local Plant and Animal Community Recovery Workshop and Tour:

Learn Stewart’s methods, developed over the last 20 years, how best to help the wealth of the ancient pre-European local ecological community grow back. Unlike much of what is called “restoration”, Stewart’s methods start with the principle that “mother knows best”, with the mother plants and mother nature knowing best when and where to grow their offspring, and letting them do most of the planting, while we give them a helping hand to re-spread over the land that, before European contact, they had completely covered in a great wealth of diversity. We will start in Stewart’s Orchard St Ravine mini-prairie, where Stewart has helped the local prairie community make a come-back, then head to Lincoln Park, where the ancient local plant community had already had Seattle’s greatest remaining natural diversity, and where Stewart has helped it maintain and regain some of its pre-European rich diversity and surface coverage.

$25 or any contribution.

Retirement Celebration for Dr. Paul Smith @ West Side Presbyterian Church
Jun 12 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

West Side Presbyterian Church is announcing the retirement of its senior pastor and inviting the community to a celebration:

June 12th will mark the end of 45 years of service and vocational ministry for Dr. Paul R. Smith of West Seattle. He has been the senior pastor at West Side Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) since 1981, when he moved with his family from Pennsylvania to Seattle.

A retirement celebration for Dr. Paul Smith will be held:

June 12, Open House 1:00-4:00
(Special program begins at 2:00)
West Side Presbyterian Church

The public is welcome.

More information about the celebration is on the WSPC website.

* * *
In the 35 years since arriving in the NW, he has served as the senior pastor of West Side Presbyterian Church. A recent tally showed he had officiated 180 wedding ceremonies, led 256 memorial services, and baptized more than 430 children and adults. He has also been active in renewal ministries with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and has served the church both locally and nationally in promoting and equipping churches for evangelism.

Born November 25, 1945, Paul is the son of a banker and one of six children. He grew up in a small ranching town in Western South Dakota near Badlands National Park. He graduated with honors from Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL, before marrying his wife, Carreen Armerding and earning an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston, MA.

For the first ten years of his ministry, Dr. Smith served as Assistant Pastor and then Senior Pastor of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in McKeesport, PA.

He completed his Doctorate of Ministry from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School shortly after arriving in Seattle. And in the years since, he’s written four books: Jesus, Meet him again for the First Time; Close Encounters: Knowing the Savior; Enjoying God Forever; God’s Plan for our Good. He has also traveled extensively throughout Israel and Jordan and has co-led a half-dozen tours, in Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece.

Paul and his wife, Carreen are the parents of four children: Lucian, Taleigh, Lindsay, and Miriam, and grandparents of seven.

Following retirement, and a long-awaited trip to Africa, the Smiths will return to Seattle, where Paul plans to continue his writing and looks forward to spending more time with his family and grandchildren.

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.

Artful, Therapeutic, and Informed Weeding at Lincoln Park
Dec 14 @ 8:30 am – 11:00 am

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Wednesday, December 14th 8:30 am–11:00 am, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures offers: Artful, Therapeutic and Informed Weeding:

Help preserve our natural heritage for future generations. Learn the best strategies to help declining local, wild rarities grow back, as we protect them from weeds. The wealth of our ancient, unique, local natural community, has been in decline ever since the first global gold seekers brought with them seeds of weeds that our local natural community was not adapted to living with. Tinkering with plants as we sit in beautiful natural surroundings, goes back in our evolutionary roots to before agriculture, and there is an instinctive therapy in sitting on a bed of moss, plucking out plants, either for harvest, or to help valued surrounding plants, or both. As we sit in nature with our neighbors, wiggling out weeds, we can learn various strategic weeding methods, including learning the identification and root structure of each weed species we target, then when, how, and where, they would disperse if we let them. We can also learn which weeds we can nibble on. Then we learn the reason we are weeding, which is to help the re-spreading of the declining local, wild plants, and the wild animals that are adapted to the declining plants, those weeds were pushing out. Then on the way out we can learn the art of “weed walking”, where we pull the weeds away from the declining wild plants, while we walk, hardly losing a step.

This is a world that we could be moving back towards with each of our community gatherings in nature, where we are contributing to the natural community as a mutualistic member of that community, rather than a parasitic or predatory member of that community. Could this model go viral? Could it spread around the globe better and last longer than Pokeman Go? Why not?

I ask that people preregister to ensure that the group size is manageable both for me and the mosses. e-mail me at ecostewart@gmail.com or phone me at 206 932-7225 (currently only land line).

While the program is free, Stewart appreciates any useful support that the human community gives him that will help the growth of the success of his efforts to promote the protection and recovery our most precious and unique local natural communities that our misguided human culture has increasingly been degrading and diminishing.

Learning the Art and Practice of Healing Mother Nature Herself
Jan 8 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Sunday, January 8th, 11:00 am–1:30 pm, join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures to Learn the Art and Practice of Healing Mother Nature Herself from Mother Nature’s Medicine Man, who has spent most of his 60 years studying her local natural community, and how we might best help with the protection and recovery of her incredible wealth and beauty that has been in decline ever since the first human sought to control and exploit her. This will be an all generations program for all levels of knowledge. Learning and practicing the protection and healing of our natural community is not only fascinating, and feels like a good thing to be doing for the world, but doing it is therapeutic and a good activity to rebuild richer, and healthier, human community around.

This session is at one of Seattle’s greatest remaining urban oases of nature at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. The following session could be at your favorite remaining local oasis of nature, where you and your neighbors renew your spirits in nature. I don’t ask for any monetary contributions for this program, but I do ask for any help you can contribute towards my efforts to promote a paradigm shift for the human community to increasingly again appreciate and serve our Mother Nature, while again serving the health of our human communities in the process.

Preregistration is not required, but if you tell me you are coming it will help me estimate the size group to plan for. We might follow up by planning a “stewardship adventure” to a site where some species still thrives, that we estimate once thrived at our favorite local oasis of nature, but has since become rare or lost, as we build a growing community of stewards. We can learn about that species that has become rare or lost from that favorite nature spot, do enough stewardship of its habitat in that remaining stronghold that the mother plant would be happy to give us a few of her seeds to give good homes to, and bring them back to our favorite local nature oasis for her. If no one contacts me, and it’s weather is too rough, I may not show up. Call or e-mail: 206 932-7225; ecostewart@gmail.com

Sunday Community Service to Serve the God of Mother Nature @ Lincoln Park
Jan 22 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

January 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am–1:30 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures invites you to:

Sunday Community Service to Serve the God of Mother Nature
Attend a Sunday service of a different sort! In honor of the god of Mother Nature we will have a community gathering to serve her by strategically sacrificing weeds in her honor. Also, as part of the service there will be a sermon on strategies of how to make the most of sacrificing of the weeds to get the maximum mileage towards the preservation of the ancient art of the god of Mother Nature. These strategies will also apply to helping help her recover the maximum amount of her natural health, natural wealth, and natural beauty as she can. This is a health, wealth and beauty that has been in decline ever since the culture of the allegorical Able and Cain, the animal, and plant and land controllers, and the culture of the legendary King David the gold hoarder, started taking control of the planet and its populace.

We will meet at the kiosk at the northern of the 2 parking lots at Lincoln Park, across from Rose St. No pre-registration required.

And don’t worry about sitting in a stuffy temple, church or mosque, listening to a boring sermon, as the sermon will be delivered either while walking or sitting outdoors in a relatively beautiful natural area. As you will either be pleasantly plucking at the sacrificial weeds, wildly ripping them out by their roots, or just enjoying being in nature, if you prefer, you can ignore the sermon! And if you have had enough before 1:30 you can always peel off early!

While all weed sacrifice can be done bare handed, if you have a pair of work gloves, and maybe a Hori Hori weeding knife, you could bring them.

Gibbous Moon Walk with the Stars, Owls and Trees @ Lincoln Park
Feb 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures for Gibbous Moon Walk with the Stars, Owls and Others @ Lincoln Park With a bright, gibbous moon high in the sky, we’ll look and listen, and hoot for the owls. We’ll learn about the wealth of our local natural community at night. We might see the moon and some stars if the clouds cooperate. While the owls may be quiet and not showing themselves, the herbs, shrubs and trees can’t hide and we can always learn a bit about them or any member of the natural community we can see, hear, smell or taste, and a hike in nature at night is always an adventure!

I ask that people pre-register for me to manage the group size by e-mailing me: ecostewart@gmail.com or phoning me: 206 932-7225 (I still haven’t learned how to use my cell). We meet by the kiosk at the northern of Lincoln Park’s two parking lots, Across from SW Rose St., between SW Thistle St. at the south end, and SW Monroe St. at the north end.

No fee is required, but I ask that people offer any form of support they are comfortable with that would help me continue my efforts to inspire and teach people about the true wealth of nature, while teaching better stewardship of our natural community, building, in the process, a healthier human community.
