All 20s/30s are invited to join in this exploration of distant and exotic West Seattle. The group will visit the Duwamish Longhouse, eat lunch, and spend some time helping with cleanup along the West Duwamish Greenbelt by removing invasive plants in Pigeon Point Park. The day will end in the afternoon with a visit to St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church to walk their labyrinth.
9:30 a.m. – Meet at Saint Mark’s for those who want to carpool
10 a.m.–12:30 p.m. – *Update* Instead of exploring Puget Park later in the day, we will explore Pigeon Point Park and help with cleanup along the West Duwamish Greenbelt by removing invasive plants in the urban forest led by the DNDA-Nature Consortium.
12:30 p.m. – Lunch. If the weather is nice, we’ll have a picnic outside.
1 p.m. – Visit the Longhouse (close by to Pigeon Point) as we contemplate the work we have just done in helping restore land and the ongoing work of the Duwamish to honor sacred spaces of their tribal heritage.
Optional: for those who would like, we will have the opportunity to end our day with reflection on the labyrinth at St. John the Baptist Episcopal.
