Bike Ride on Steamboat Island July 16

Event: 
Sat, 07/16/2016 - 10:00am - 5:00pm

Saturday, July 16, 2016
10 AM
Steamboat Peninsula, Olympia

The ride will start at the Wynne Tree Farm, a 530-acre working tree farm at the base of the Steamboat Peninsula. Riders will travel along the road that parallels this property, and will be able to see the beautiful, and vast, forest and fresh water areas that comprise this property, and that are permanently conserved by Capitol Land Trust and the Wynne family.

The short ride travels up the Peninsula and will stop at Frye Cove Park. Riders can take a short (approximately 1/3 mile) walk to the beach, and will enjoy the scenery while having a snack at the picnic tables. Riders will learn about conservation on the Steamboat Peninsula, especially about a hopeful addition to CLT’s conserved areas which is next to Frye Cove and is home to a half mile of Frye Cove Creek, the stream that drains to Frye Cove and that contains important salmon spawning habitat. After this stop, riders will ride back to the Wynne Tree Farm.

Neighborhood Pizza

This story map looks at pizza restaurants in Thurston County.  It was part of a demonstration that I did for Thurston Economic Development Council, but I thought it might be interesting to folks as they consider the idea of neighborhood retail. I enriched U.S. Census Block groups with information about average income, age, and households, so even if you are not interested in the topic, you can find out information about where you live, if it is in Thurston County.

Living in An Electromagnetic Space Age

Event: 
Tue, 05/31/2016 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Many choose to compartmentalize issues because otherwise they are too overwhelming—extreme weather, vaccinations, GMOs, the loss of water quality, degeneration of the immune system, dying species, forests, and oceans—the sinking dollar, degeneration of morality and ethics, the death of the American dream and rise of Agenda 21, geoengineering and the Space Fence lockdown.

What if the nagging intuition that they are all connected under globalization is true? What if any one of these issues is just one facet of a vast and deep spiritual war being waged over the future of humanity and our planet?
