WOWTA Tour 2010

by Jennifer Rotermund, Habitat Steward

Another Summer Solstice has come and gone and although most of us Northwesterners are still waiting for the weather to read the “Its Summertime!” Memo, there’s no denying that Summer has technically arrived. So before you scatter to your cabin on the shore or your favorite campsite in the mountains, I wish to quickly (if not excitedly!) remind you that Summertime in Shoreline means its time for the “Where Our Wild Things Are” Backyard Habitat Tour - or “WOWTA” for short!

Saturday, July 9, 2011, 10am - 3pm
Briarcrest and Ridgecrest Neighborhoods in Shoreline, WA
Pick up your tour guide and map at 10am
Briarcrest Elementary 
2715 NE 158th, Shoreline, WA 98155

WOWTA is a truly cooperative venture. Thanks to sponsorship by a City of Shoreline environmental mini-grant, and a fun and dedicated volunteer team of Shoreline Habitat Stewards working in close partnership with the National Wildlife Federation, the event is free to the public.

Last year’s WOWTA Tour was “wildly” successful and with six garden habitats, this year’s tour is shaping up to be even more fun and exciting. 

The Ridgecrest and Briarcrest neighborhoods are hosting this year’s tour, so all of the Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitats selected to be in the tour are located in those two Shoreline neighborhoods. 

Look for WOWTA street signs, flyers and cards popping up all over Shoreline advertising the tour. 
  • Did you attend last year’s tour? 
  • Would you like to submit your Certified Backyard Habitat for participation in a future year’s tour? 
  • Want to know how to certify your own yard as a Wildlife Habitat? 

We’d love to hear from you and welcome your ideas or questions. You can find us on the web or on Facebook by searching WOWTA.  You may contact us directly by email.

If you’d like to see what’s being done to protect the wildlife in Shoreline, the WOWTA Backyard Habitat Tour will show you just how that’s being accomplished - one backyard at a time! We hope to see you on July 9, 2011.
