Sign Up Now to Lead a Service Project during the MLK Day of Service!
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. sought to forge the common ground on which people from all walks of life could join together to address important community issues. In a 1957 speech titled “Conquering Self-Centeredness,” Dr. King pointed out that “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?“.
Anyone interested in teaching, outreach, communicating science or who just wants classroom experience should take a look at the COOL course below. This is the first of two quarters (the next will be in spring) – while students are encouraged to take both courses, it is possible to just take the Winter Quarter course.
New course offering: COOL Science Education, EDUC 401Z
Madrona Woods, Seattle
Saturday, Dec 8 ~ 10am – 2pm
Madrona Woods is a 9-acre urban forest across the street from the west shore of Lake Washington, home to bald eagles, hummingbirds, and salamanders. FCRW is teaming up with Friends of Madrona Woods in a partnership to restore this beautiful neighborhood resource to a more natural and sustainable state! Two streams have been daylighted, acres of blackberry and other invasive plants have been removed, and now volunteers can help continue the progress by planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs.
