HOOT

This terrific film is based on the John Newbery Medal award winning novel for young adults by satirical crime writer Carl Hiaasen with a soundtrack by Jimmy Buffet!

While trying to resist being bullied on the school bus, Roy becomes intrigued by a barefoot boy funning along the sidewalk.  As he investigates, Roy learns that a nearby construction site is a habitat for a protected species of burrowing owl and that a tough girl at his school named Beatrice has some connection with the barefoot boy. 

The three middle school kids team up to do what they can to save the owls...and do an inspiring job!

After the film, you can enjoy a couple of local Streamkeeper Tales from the Streamkeepers Field Guide co-authored by Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Tom Murdoch...and learn how, unlike kids in the movie,  some local kids protected the environment and stayed out of trouble at the same time!

Lynx and Snowshoe Hare

Deep in the forest of the Pacific NW one of the most beautiful cats in the world is on the hunt for its elusive prey.  Those deep forests are where you can often find University of Washington Wildlife Science Professor Aaron Wirsing tracking that cat – the Lynx – who is often on the trail of a Snowshoe Hare.  


The  show will begin deep in the North Cascades.   There, Aaron will describe the life history of Lynx – how long they live, their size, how far they range, where mothers den, a glimpse of kittens, and their favorite food – the Snowshoe Hare. 


This winter, Arron spends a lot of his time on the east slopes of the North Cascades searching for this elusive cat and its prey...come and find out the latest information on their where they are!!


You will really enjoy hearing Aaron’s description of the extremely fast paced and frenetic life history of the Snowshoe Hare.   And he will enlighten you to the very complex and very mysterious web of life in deep forests.


Aaron will be presenting his Lynx and Snowshoe Hare research in an entertaining fashion – so be prepared not only to learn a lot, but have some fun along the way!

How to Plant a Coastal Creek Riparian Zone

Team up with the Adopt A Stream Foundation staff and “learn by doing” how to restore the riparian zone (the area of vegetation around a stream that affects the ecology of that stream) of one of the many coastal creeks that flow into Puget Sound between Everett and Edmonds. 

This event will be one of twelve scheduled that will answer the question: Where are all the 2013 Holiday Trees for Salmon going to go.  And, if all goes well, you will get the chance to see salmon return to that stream in the fall...a great reward for your efforts!  Brings some friends, where grubs, and have some fun with us.
