Seal Sitters new volunteer training @ Alki UCC
Aug 15 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

Seal Sitters Marine Mammal Stranding Network will hold a new volunteer training on Saturday, August 15, 2015, from 10 am–12:30 pm.

When: Saturday, August 15, 2015
Time: 10 am–12:30 pm
Training starts promptly at 10 am (please arrive early: doors open for
registration and paperwork at 9:30)

RSVP required (see below)

Help protect wildlife! Volunteer with Seal Sitters Marine Mammal Stranding Network. On Saturday afternoon, June 13th, we will be holding a special training for those wanting to protect marine mammals along the shoreline of West Seattle and the Duwamish River. Unlike most marine mammal stranding networks, we encourage children to participate in Seal Sitters – supervised at all times, of course, by a parent or guardian. We are so proud of our amazing and dedicated volunteers who are on duty rain or shine – we hope you will join us!

A multi-media presentation will illustrate Seal Sitters MMSN’s educational work in the community and the unique challenges of protecting seals and other marine mammals in an urban environment. Included in the training is an overview of NOAA’s Western Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network and biology and behavior of seals and other common pinnipeds.

FOR MORE DETAILS ABOUT LOCATION AND TO RSVP, visit Seal Sitters’ event page. RSVP is required to assure seating. (Please include full name and name/ages of children)

Seal Sitters MMSN averages 200 responses each year to reports of marine mammals (large or small species, dead or alive) on the beach. 90% of those responses are to vulnerable harbor seal pups during our busiest time of year – late summer and fall. Pupping season is now underway in South Puget Sound and Seal Sitters has responded to 4 newborn pups since the end of May. We are happy to say that one of those pups, Little Dipper (abandoned and rescued from Lincoln Park) is doing well in rehab at PAWS Wildlife Center. Visit www.blubberblog.org to learn more about Little Dipper and Seal Sitters’ recent activities.

Please join us on August 15th and help ensure that seal pups and other marine mammals can rest safely on our beaches. Due to time constraints of volunteers during the height of pupping season in West Seattle (usually August – October), this will be our final training for this season until later in the Fall. We hope you can attend!

Washington State Animal Response Team Fundraiser @ Beveridge Place Pub
Aug 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Engine House #9 Brewer’s Night & Fundraiser for Washington State Animal Response Team!

Drink great beers for a great cause! We scheduled this brewer’s night with Engine House #9 several weeks ago with an amazing line-up of Belgian-style brews in mind. The proliferation of wildfires throughout the state prompted us to combine BPP’s two passions — enjoying awesome beer and helping animals!

We’ll have 9 beers on from E9 (see what we did there?), including all four releases of their Ferme Agrume Farmhouse series, plus award winning beers like Golden Berry Wild, Tacoma Wild, and Nefelibata Flanders Red! In addition to donating $1 per glass of E9 brews, we’ll be raffling off some cool glassware and t-shirts from numerous breweries! These funds will be donated to Washington State Animal Response Team.

The Washington State Animal Response Team is a 100% volunteer organization that assists in rescuing domestic animals in emergency situations. They have opened an emergency companion animal shelter in the Okanagan to help people who needed to evacuate their homes take care of themselves by taking care of their animals for them.

West Seattle Big Band’s Benefit Concert for the MS Society @ Senior Center of West Seattle
Oct 3 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

You can make a difference, and enjoy live music from the West Seattle Big Band at the same time! The third annual Dance MS is being held at the West Seattle Senior Center on Saturday, October 3rd, from 7-10 pm. Come ready to dance, or just to listen to some great music.

The event also includes a small live auction, and several silent auction items, ranging from coffee at C&P to vacation packages to drum lessons. All of the event proceeds will go toward the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, since event expenses are either covered through the band or donation.

You may know the West Seattle Big Band from our connection to the Seattle schools: while we perform for events such as weddings and concerts throughout the Seattle area, rather than taking pay, musicians in the band donate any income back to assist school band programs, primarily in the West Seattle area.

Dance MS strays from the band’s mission statement, but holds a special meaning for the group. In 2012, our piano player Brooke Yool was diagnosed with MS. She asked for the band’s support and arranged the first Dance MS in 2013, and the event was a huge success.

So, we ask for your support to make the third Dance MS even more successful than the first two. In order for this to happen, we ask you—the local community—to help us in the fight against MS.

Come down to the West Seattle Senior Center on Saturday, October 3rd. Doors open at 7, and we’ll be going strong until 10. Suggested donation is $15. Hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks are included. You may buy tickets online at http://www.dancems.org/, or you can reserve your spot by email or phone at brooke@dancems.org or 206-659-9391. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/945426608836288/

From host Sara Beth Dye:

As many of you already know, I am raising money for Nepal’s Children Emergency Relief via UNICEF Australia. Nepal’s children face an unprecedented emotional toll as they deal with the devastating consequences of two earthquakes in the space of weeks. UNICEF has been on the ground since late April, but they still very much need our support. These funds will specifically go to shelter for children whose homes have been destroyed, clean water for drinking and washing to prevent further spread of waterborne disease such as cholera, healthcare including vaccinations and vitamins, hygiene kits and facilities, educational materials to use while schools are being rebuilt, and psychosocial support for children who have experienced profound stress like the loss of a parent.

Come join me for an evening of fun at The Lounge, a rustic and modern private event venue by Duos Catering. Enjoy cocktails, appetizers, free wine tastings from local wineries, raffle drawings, silent auction items and fabulous live music entertainment provided by the Robert Stewart Fiasco Band! (If you have never heard these guys play, you are missing out!) Tickets are $25.00, purchased at the door, and includes wine tastings, delicious appetizers, two raffle tickets, and that warm fuzzy feeling knowing you are helping a wonderful cause. Remember… it easily could have happened here.

Come and go as you please and feel free to invite whomever you would like! See you there. ;)

HPIC’s Design Charrette @ Highland Park Improvement Club
Oct 25 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

You are invited to HPIC’s first ever Design Charrette, Sunday, October 25th.

What’s a Design Charrette?
A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, designers and others collaborate on a vision for development. It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback to the designers. More importantly, it allows everyone who participates to be a mutual author of the plan.

Why should I get involved?
The HPIC Board and many of us in the neighborhood have expressed different ideas over the years about what we would like to do with the building, to make it more appealing to look at and use. Here’s your chance to make your opinion known!

How does it work?
We have two architects from NBBJ who are generously facilitating the event to help us envision what we want this place to do and be for years to come. We need you to come and bring your thinking cap, good humor and ideas. This is a time to dream, a time to explore, a time to roll up your sleeves and dive in to draw pictures, shout our your ideas, and vote on your favorites.

When does it start?
Doors open at noon and the two hour working session starts at 1 pm. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

Please RSVP to hpic1919@gmail.com.

Fundraiser performance of ‘My Mañana Comes’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Nov 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

On October 25th, around 6:30 pm, Ramon Aspeitia was stabbed on his way home from work at his bus transfer in White Center. A hard-working and well-loved employee of both Shadowland and Ma’Ono, two restaurants in the Alaska Junction area of West Seattle, Ramon was brutally attacked by three assailants and is currently paralyzed from the waist down.

ArtsWest is seeking to do its part to contribute to the recovery of their West Seattle neighbor. All ticket proceeds from the Wednesday, November 11th, 7:30 pm performance of their current production “My Mañana Comes” will go to Ramon Aspeitia’s family to help with medical expenses.

My Mañana Comes, a new play that debuted to much acclaim off-Broadway last year, delves into the issues of immigration, identity, and fair pay. Four bussers, two Mexican immigrants living in the Corona neighborhood of Queens, a black American from West Harlem, and a Mexican American who grew up in Coney Island, find their worlds intersecting in the back of a Manhattan restaurant.

My Mañana Comes runs through November 22nd, 2015 at ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery (4711 California Ave SW, Seattle WA 98116). Tickets (ranging from $17 – $37.50) are on sale now and may be purchased online at www.artswest.org or by phone at 206-938-0339, or at the box office Thursday – Saturday 1:30–7:30 pm and Sunday 10:30 am–3:00 pm.

BackPACKS bring HOPE event @ (See listing)
Nov 28 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

“Bring a new or gently used backpack and stuff it with first aid, food, toiletry products, and a handwritten letter by you. Then Stephanie’s Lifeline will hand them out along with a winter jacket to help keep some people warm this winter and also give a little HOPE and encouragement to our friends on the streets.

We ask that everyone bring at least one backpack… the more the better. We are hoping to fill 200 with a first aid kit, toiletries, a few food items and a drink. We will also take the time to hand write 200 notes of encouragement to put in each bag in order to just give a little HOPE and bring a smile to the face of a person who likely doesn’t smile much these days. Each backpack will be accompanied by a coat and given out to homeless individuals currently in need.

Please feel welcome to bring any items you would like including any first aid, food, drink, and/or toiletry items, backpack and/or winter coat.

We will be providing light snacks and refreshments and it will give us all time to chat and network. Please RSVP if you are interested in joining the party! Or if you are unable to join the group but would like to donate, visit our gofundme
page https://www.gofundme.com/BackPACKSBringHOPE and make a donation toward the purchase of the items or drop some items off before the date of the party.

Acoustic Music Benefit for Frances & John Smersh @ Karass Creative
Dec 6 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Community + Love: A musical benefit to support the Smershes

Recently, at age 48, beloved artist and West Seattle shop owner Frances Smersh was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. There is no treatment. There is no cure. And medical insurance does not cover what will be required. Alzheimer’s is a brutal, merciless disease. Plaques and tangles destroy brain cells and decimate not only a person’s memory but the essence of who they are–their personality and their ability to execute even the most basic of functions. While the length of survival is uncertain, Younger Onset Dementia progresses rapidly, and in September their doctor told them to consider the next twelve months the best ones they will have in this journey.

To help raise money to give Frances and John time to be together and to help pay for current and looming medical expenses, several long-time musician friends have banded together to present a unique and exceptional night of music. The musicians, having played and performed in many of Seattle’s most notable acoustic bands, are pooling their well-honed talents together for a one-night performance.

Dec 06, 2015 6:00 pm
at Karass Creative
Tickets online here

With a strong core of musicians, the night will feature evolving small groups, and different pairings as these friends join in and also step aside as the acoustic musical journey unfolds. Drawing from a range of folk, swing, americana, blues, old-time and bluegrass, it promises to be an engaging and satisfying night of music, and a celebration of community and love.

Heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the following friends who are donating their
time, energy, and extraordinary talents to the show:

Grant Dermody: Harmonica, Vocals
Forrest Gibson: Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals
Michael Gray: Violin, Vocals
Orville Johnson: Dobro, Guitar, Banjo, Vocals
Greg Maass: Dobro, Banjo, Vocals
Mary Maass: Fiddle, Vocals
Joe Wilmhoff: Bass, Vocals

Special Fundraiser Tasting event @ Bin 41
Dec 9 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

New, special fundraiser tasting at Bin 41:

As we worked through the final details for the NW Hope & Healing tasting, we were touched close to home by the dreaded ‘C’ in our own lives. A coworker of Jon’s is undergoing a valiant battle with a rare form of cancer. To assist with medical expenses including travel costs, we are hosting a special fundraiser next month, on Wednesday December 9th from 6-7:30 pm. Our dear friends at Avennia have graciously signed up to showcase their new fall releases for this special evening.

Cara was diagnosed with stage IV Ocular Melanoma, an extremely rare eye cancer that has spread to her liver, in July of this year. She participated in an immunotherapy clinical trial starting that month but found out in October that it was unsuccessful and the cancer has grown and spread to her lungs. Now Cara and her husband Tobias are reaching out to the few oncologists in the country that understand and can treat this form of cancer which will likely require extensive travel for treatment.

We are hosting this fundraiser event to help with a portion of their travel expenses and to provide support when Cara and Tobias truly need it the most. Join us as we toast Cara and all that she means to us, her friends and family.

In addition to this fundraiser, Cara and Tobias have created a gofundme page. As the holidays approach, this is the time for sharing and giving assistance to those in need. Every little bit helps, even simply words of encouragement. We hope you will help FILL THE BIN on a Wednesday night to show your support for a wonderful, caring person in need. We will have a $10 tasting fee that is refundable as usual on a bottle purchase, but you can also choose to donate your fee to Cara and Tobias. The bin will be donating a portion of all sales during the tasting. If you cannot attend or wish to assist in addition to the tasting, please

We do our best to make our full color, hardback, 116 paged yearbook affordable to all the families who want one, but we need your help to make this happen. So please bring your friends and family anytime on Thursday, February 25th and show your support for the kids and families in your community. Thank you!!

Panama Hotel Jazz: Steve Griggs Ensemble concert – benefit for WS Helpline @ Alki United Church of Christ
Mar 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

“Music with a Heart” concert series, sponsored by Alki UCC, presents:

Panama Hotel Jazz” Steve Griggs Ensemble. “Music made from memories”

The show is “music made from memories,” a combination of stories about the Japanese internment during WWII and original jazz compositions by Steve Griggs, performed by a group of very talented musicians–the same musicians who provided the Christmas concert here in December.

Friday, March 11, 7:30 pm
Alki United Church of Christ

A free-will offering of $15 – $20 is suggested; cash and checks (made out to WS Helpine) accepted at the door. Refreshments and treats after the program. All the proceeds from the concert series are used to pay the musicians and to donate to West Seattle Helpline. (The church promotes the series but does not share in the proceeds. Our goal is to reach out to our community and provide something of benefit to our community.)

Special note: One of our very long time members is Ruth Okada, age 97, who was a young woman with two very young children when she and her husband were interned in Idaho. She is currently writing some thoughts to be shared at that concert about that experience and how it has shaped her life. She and her husband, unlike many others, were welcomed back into the West Seattle and Alki UCC community when the war ended, and they were part of a group which was very instrumental in designing and funding and building the sanctuary in the late 50’s where these concerts are held. She also happens to be the member of the church who spoke out in favor of using undesignated memorial funds from a member who died several years ago to acquire a world class concert grand piano to grace our sanctuary.

TEAM MILA FUND
In October 2015, 8-year-old MILA SORLIE underwent surgery to remove an egg-sized brain tumor. Although surgery was successful, the tumor was found to be cancerous … an extremely rare (200 cases per year) and highly aggressive brain cancer that generally strikes children around Mila’s age. She finished 6 weeks radiation (whole brain and targeted) in December, 2015. In January, 2016, she started her first chemotherapy and has 5 more remaining chemo treatments to go before completing treatment in June, 2016. It’s been a rough journey but Mila is a girl with an abundance of strength, grace, and love. Not only that, she is well-equipped with an essential X-FACTOR: her amazing family, friends, and community. Unfortunately, her many and often unpredictable treatments have meant additional expenses and missed work for her parents, Teresa and Matthew, who are doing their best to juggle multiple demands. Let’s help Mila’s family so that Matthew and Teresa can fully be with Mila through this long, grueling journey.

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.

Explore the beach at low tide! @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jul 6 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Join trained volunteer Beach Naturalists at Lincoln Park and South Alki/Constellation Park on the following dates this year for a free guided exploration at very low tide (please note the specific times for each day.) No reservations necessary; just look for signs at the beaches listed on the dates and hours below. Please note: low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.

Search for tidepool animals during some of the best low tides of the year. Learn a bit of beach ecology and which animal is the most colorful – a sea star, a sea anemone, or a sea slug. Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Not only will you witness the Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, but you’ll also see advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beach goers – Beach Naturalists.

Beach Naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn and enjoy area beaches this summer. Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

THE NEED FOR BLOOD NEVER TAKES A VACATION. With summer right around the corner it is even more important to schedule an appointment to give blood as we tend to see lower donor turnout when the weather gets warmer.

(From West Seattleite Rebecca Harvey): I’ve partnered with Be The Match to host a donor registration drive on July 24th.

Myself, along with other volunteers and a representative from Be The Match will be there from 9 am to 2 pm to answer any questions regarding being a donor, as well as registering on the spot anyone that would like to join the donor registry. This is an important cause as these donors have the potential to be the cure that a cancer patient needs.

Be The Match is a great organization that operates the largest and most diverse donor registry in the world, in order to connect patients with blood diseases to their life saving marrow or stem cell transplant. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 44 who is in good health and committed to donating to a patient in need is encouraged to join the donor registry. Joining is simple and takes less then 10
minutes – all you need to do is fill out a form and swab your cheek!

International Coastal Cleanup Day @ Alki Beach Park
Sep 17 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

From Puget Soundkeeper Alliance: Saturday, September 17th at Alki Beach 9:00 am–12:00 pm.

Three starting locations are available around the West Seattle shoreline to cover maximum ground: Charles Richey Sr. Viewpoint, Alki Beach Bathhouse, and Seacrest Park. Click here to sign up and participate!

Time: 9:30 – 12:00 on Saturday, September 17

The International Coastal Cleanup is the largest global volunteer project in service to our rivers, lakes and oceans. Each fall, approximately 800,000 people worldwide clean up their local waterways and document every single piece of trash collected. The results are sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).

Last year, over 18 million pounds of trash were collected. What will be found this year?

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

MLK Weekend of service – West Duwamish Greenbelt work party @ Pigeon Point Park
Jan 16 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Nature Consortium is collaborating with United Way of King County by hosting an MLK Day of Service on January 16th, 2017. For this event we are looking for volunteers to help continue the effort in restoring the West Duwamish Greenbelt forest.

In 2016, more than 2,300 volunteers completed 140 projects all over King County for MLK Day of Service. Join with us on MLK Day of Service 2017 at Pigeon Point Park in restoring the West Duwamish Greenbelt. The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest within the City of Seattle, extending over 500 acres and providing important ecosystem services to the Duwamish Rivershed. Volunteers will provide a crucial boost to efforts aimed at restoring sites to healthy, diverse forests by planting native plant species and removing invasive plant species.

Activities will begin from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Music, refreshments, tools, and instructions will be provided. All ages and abilities are welcomed as no experience is necessary; families, company groups, clubs, individuals, schools, are encouraged to participate which is why we are reaching out to you.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Music by Island Soul.

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

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

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

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

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

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

About the Seattle Seafair Commodores –

For over 60 years, the Seafair Commodores have been serving the Seattle community as the Seafair Festival’s official Goodwill Ambassadors. We are active year round representing Seattle and Seafair at festivals throughout the Northwest and British Columbia, as well as many community service projects. We are proud to be one of the five Seafair volunteer “families” – distinct volunteer groups that were part of the original founding of the Seafair Festival in the 1940s. The Commodores started as a group of Seattle business leaders who came together to raise money for the festival. We continue to honor our original mission by raising money for the Seafair Foundation and Scholarship Program for Women.
