Happy Summer! Hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather and also some of the rain we've been having. It's nearly that time again - Thirsty Third Thursday! For the next two months we're going to diverge from the normal structure and join up with two awesome groups.
For July we are going to join up with SUPERPOD 5!
This is an annual gathering on San Juan of international scientists, filmmakers, authors, journalists, former trainers, naturalists, and Orca advocates. http://www.orcasuperpod.com
. It's a pretty neat opportunity to interface with a group that you might not normally get a chance to.
We'll join the fun for a sunset Green Drinks at beautiful Lime Kiln State Park. Still goes 5 - 7pm as usual but plan to stay a little later if you want to catch the sunset. This is a free event and is BYOB. A little picnic fare might be nice as well. GD will congregate together wherever seems to make the most sense, shooting for the more southern area. I'll try to post our sign somewhere visible; keep an eye out for your buddies and find us!
But dang, there's a catch. Because this is such a popular event, I've heard parking out there can be a little tricky. What is the solution? Carpool, carpool, carpool! (And maybe come a little early.) You will also need a Discover Pass ($30) or a day pass ($10) to park at Lime Kiln itself...some may be familiar with other nearby local parking spots. Please don't let this be a deterrent to attending, but please be aware that it's a thing.
In summary, July Green Drinks is:
Thursday, July 21st, 5 - 7pm (and staying till sunset if you're keen)
Lime Kiln State Park* **, 1567 Westside Rd.
*Need Discover or day pass to park.
**For the love of god carpool.
Keep in mind:
- Emails will be moving over to Mailchimp soon; keep an eye on your junk box and/or the fb page.
- There will be photos taken and possibly filming at upcoming GD events which may end up on the Facebook and/ or Green Drinks website. Be aware and let me (Kelsey) know if you are adverse to this.
Looking ahead - Upcoming Green Drinks:
Thursday, August 18th, 5 - 7pm
Join us aboard University of Washington's Friday Harbor Labs' premier research vessel the R/V Centennial. The boat will remain pier-side so you can come and go at your leisure. Connect with your GD buddies (on a boat!) and learn about research taking place at Friday Harbor Labs. More info in August email.
