Brown Bag Lunch: "Marine Mammal Protection Act"
Friday, May 13th
West Sound Wildlife Shelter/Bainbridge Island Land Trust

What should you do if you find a baby seal or an injured adult seal? We'll give you a short introduction into the marine mammals that can be seen around Bainbridge Island including information on the Marine Mammal Protection Act, who to call if you find abandoned or injured marine mammals, and new information about our local Orca pods. See how many you can spot when you participate in the Bainbridge Island Land Trust's Bioblitz! 

The Brown Bag Lunch Series is presented by Bainbridge Island Land Trust and West Sound Wildlife Shelter. A suggested donation of $3 supports the missions of these organizations.

IslandWood Welcome Center
Bainbridge Island BioBlitz
Click here to register today!

Are you an adult who never grew out of your sense of curiosity for the natural world? Do you have kids who are always asking "what's that?" or bringing home living things in buckets, jars or nets? The BioBlitz is for you!Volunteer participants can sign up to join a Taxa Team to search for and identify species of plants, animals, insects, fungi, and everything in between! This is a perfect opportunity to learn more about what's living in your own backyard here on Bainbridge Island.

You can sign-up for as many "taxa-teams" as your day allows. This event is an all-ages, family-friendly, novices-welcome sort of day. You be the gauge at what holds you and/or your kids' interest and for how long.

IslandWood's gorgeous Welcome Center transforms as our "Base Camp" for the day. Teams that are surveying at IslandWood and Blakely Harbor will meet-up at Base Camp. Teams surveying the Grand Forest/Hilltop will meet at Prue's House at Hilltop. ALL participants are welcome back for our 5pm after-party (with snacks) to celebrate our hard work and amazing discoveries! The public is also welcome to join the fun at Base Camp, even without joining a team. We'll have plenty of activities for everyone thanks to our friends at these partner organizations:

- Burke Museum
- Woodland Park Zoo
- West Sound Wildlife Shelter
- Nature Journaling, botanical drawing, and more!

Don't miss out! All are welcome to this FREE, family-friendly event!

Historic Lynnwood Theater
The Messenger: Imagine a world without birdsong
The award-winning film THE MESSENGER is a visually stunning emotional journey that brings us face-to-face with the human-made changes that are devastating songbirds everywhere. It's a beautifully crafted film about the man-made hazards birds face, and those who are working to turn the tide. Ultimately, birds have something to tell us about the state of our planet and our shared future.

Co-sponsored by Kitsap Audubon Society, Bainbridge Land Trust, Sustainable Bainbridge, and Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Rec. Film will be featured at the historic Lynnwood Theatre.

Doors open at 6:30pm.  Show premiers at 7:00pm and runs approximately ~90 minutes.  There will be short Q&A discussion following the film.
