Red Barn Event – Homewaters: A Conversation about Connections
Wednesday, September 29th 5:00pm-6:00pm
@ Red Barn, Wenatchee River Institute
Authors David Williams (Homewaters) and Iris Graville (Writer in a Life Vest) will create a conversation about Puget Sound that weaves the stories of people and place across more than 10,000 years of history. They will touch on warfare, transportation (canoe culture and mosquito fleet), and resource extraction; will dive into the realm of the salmon and orca, and will trace lesser known, but ecosystem-critical species such as rockfish, herring, kelp, Olympia oyster, and geoducks. Together they will weave a nuanced, intricate picture of our beautiful homewaters… and share thoughts on seizing this critical moment where we can work together to make it more habitable for all. Doors open at 4:30pm and presentation begins at 5:00pm. This event is outdoors. Please dress warmly. Masks and social distancing encouraged. If local COVID levels indicate, we will pivot to an online Zoom format.
