From its 100-million-year-old geological arrival in the Pacific Northwest to today, Salmon Bank has supported many and diverse populations including natives, the Hudson Bay Company, American fisheries, salmon, and orcas. Hear how this beautiful four-mile stretch of water and shoreline has been used, and abused, and how it serves as an enduring reminder of the need to protect places and their inhabitants. Presented by Ranger Jeff and co-sponsored by the National Park Service.
Held on the second Saturday of the month, Open Mic Night is for anyone interested in writing. Don't be shy, come read your work or just listen. You'll be inspired to write more. For more information please contact Pam Herber at email@example.com.
The Mullis Center Book Club reads Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle, the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Read the book and participate in a discussion about the book moderated by librarian Beth Helstien.
This July will see the launch of NASA’s Mars 2020 rover (Perseverance), a Chinese orbiter/lander (Tianwen-1), and the United Arab Emirates Mars orbiter (Hope). Our neighbors, former NASA and Canadian Space Agency personnel John Rummel and Vicky Hipkin--between them they have participated in a dozen Mars missions–not all of them successful!--will address ongoing and planned missions, focusing on the scientific quest to find life on Mars and the future of the human exploration of the planet.
In association with Griffin Bay and Darvill’s Bookstores, the San Juan Island Library presents a reading of House Lessons: Renovating a Life, the new book by New York Times bestselling author Erica Bauermeister, author of The Scent Keeper, The Lost Art of Mixing, and The School of Essential Ingredients.
