Upcoming Events:

Pollinator Photography by Will Peterman

This year, our celebration of Pollinator Week will feature an exhibit of the work of wild-pollinator photographer, Will Peterman. A writer and biologist, Will has been up and down the West Coast looking for America's wild bees, and trying to figure out how to take a bee's eye view of the world.

Pollinator Week

Pollinators are vital to our food system, and we are proud to be affiliated with Bee City Seattle and USA, to spread awareness of their importance. We collaborate with like-minded individuals and organizations in advocacy efforts to save and educate the community about pollinators.

Movie Screening: The Guardians

The Guardians is a story of human and nature in parallel, told through the perspectives of an indigenous Mexican community and the threatened monarch butterflies they share a forest with.
