Closing reception for award-winning Log House Museum exhibit
Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Celebrate the award-winning exhibit t?awi Creek of Hope at the Log House Museum

Join the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, photographer Tom Reese, the Duwamish Alive Coalition, and Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association on Thursday, July 25 to celebrate the success of t?awi Creek of Hope. The exhibit will be closing at the end of the month. 

The award-winning exhibit tells the story
of West Seattle’s ancient Longfellow
Creek from when salmon first chose to make it their home, through intense urbanization in the
late 19th and 20th centuries, through today when the creek and its people are beginning to tell a
new story – one of renewed hope.

It features photographs of the creek from award-winning photographer and author Tom Resse
and is a collaboration between the historical society, the Duwamish Alive Coalition, and the
Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association.

“The exhibit has provided a unique opportunity to talk about the natural environment in highly
urbanized and industrialized areas. The photos by Tom Reese stunningly describe both the
power of this creek to support wildlife and persevere, but also how human impact – both
negative and positive – can effect change,” says Elizabeth Rudrud, programs and outreach
director. Rudrud also acknowledges the leadership of Sharon Leishman, Executive Director at
Duwamish Alive Coalition, and Caroline Borsenik, Environmental Programs Director at DNDA,
in creating new connections between the historical society and environmental leaders and
educators across the region.

This partnership also resulted in extensive community-wide programs including guided hikes led by DNDA Environmental Education Staff and a sold-out panel discussion hosted at the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center that featured researchers from the University of Washington Center for Urban Waters and City of Seattle Public Utilities, authors Kelly Brenner, The Naturalist at Home, and Tom Reese, Once and Future River: Reclaiming the Duwamish, and several community partners.

Last month the exhibit won an Award of Excellence in Exhibits from the Washington Museum Association. To register for the free event visit: www.loghousemuseum.org.
