David Fenner: The Long Haul: Stories of Human Migration, Fri. June 29 @ 7 pm

For more than 200,000 years, Homo sapiens have been moving around the planet, sometimes drawn and sometimes driven by a host of natural and man-made forces: drought, floods, crop failure, war, the quest for survival, or the hope of a better future.  Join with David Fenner, Humanities Washington Speaker, in examining the roots and the routes of human migration from our beginnings in Africa, and trace our oft-branching journey into the 21st century.

The Wild Side Series: Kwiaht: Wildfire Management, Wed. June 13 @ 7 pm

Wildfires have been rare in the islands for over a thousand years, thanks to our humid climate and extensive clearing of underbrush by Coast Salish villagers setting small controlled fires.  For almost a century logging and sheep kept much of our landscape open. But since the 1940s forests have regrown, potential ladder fuels have accumulated, and now our summers are getting longer and drier.  Are the rainshadow islands heading for the kinds of wildfires that destroyed much of southern California and eastern Washington last year? Is there anything we can do to make our islands less fire prone, other than preemptive burning?
