TCA GENERAL MEETING: Lynda Mapes, Author: Witness Tree
Jun 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Author and Seattle Times environment reporter Lynda Mapes talks about her new book Witness Tree and her year studying a single, 100-year-old oak tree at the Harvard Forest. The tree shows us what birders, gardeners, hikers and other outdoor people know: the seasons aren’t what they used to be as spring on average is earlier, fall is later and winter is squeezed on both ends. A look deep inside trees and how they work, and examination of how changing seasonal timing and global warming are altering forest ecosystems and even the function of individual leaves.

Lynda is the environment reporter at the Seattle Times. She wrote Witness Tree (Bloomsbury, 2017) while a Bullard Fellow in Forest Research at the Harvard Forest and a Knight Fellow in Science Journalism at MIT. She lives in Seattle. This is her fifth book. For more information including reviews, radio and TV stories about the book, podcasts, and magazine stories about Witness Tree, go online to lyndavmapes.com

Jackson Park Trail Work Party
Jul 15 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Activities

This lovely trail around Jackson Park crosses Thornton Creek and passes through a variety of landscapes crowded with invasive ivy, blackberry, laurel, and holly. Starting with a beautiful stretch of healthy woodland, we’re planning to rescue ivy choked trees, pull out blackberries and ivy, replant and mulch to store native vegetation, and keep this popular trail clear of hazards like brambles, branches, and leaves.

Open to the public

All ages OK

6 out of 15 volunteers registered.

What to Bring

Bring stout gloves and your favorite hand tools (we have a job box with some tools)

Where to Meet

We’ll meet at the Seattle Parks rainbow sign for Jackson Park Trail. It’s located next to the entrance to the Golf Course, at NE 135th and 11th NE. (This is the golf course north of northgate, east of I-5, that extends from NE 135th to NE 145th St).

Where to Park

Parking is available next to the rainbow sign. For bus riders, walk west on NE 135th from 15th NE, where buses 347, 348, and 73 are reasonably frequent, or take the 41 and walk north on 10th NE at NE 125th.
