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 fill your Summer social calendar, 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! Funded by a donation from our local Whidbey Bank, this year’s WOWTA Tour is shaping up to be the best one yet.

When: Saturday, July 7, 2012, 10am - 3pm
Where: The Highland Terrace and Richmond Highlands Neighborhoods
Starting Tour Platform (where to pick up your tour guide and map): Highland Terrace Elementary School, 100 N 160th St, 98133
Number of Habitats in the Tour this year: six

Each location on the tour will feature not only beautiful habitat for wildlife but also an expert educator to answer your questions and give helpful ideas about how to translate what you see into your own garden. 

A couple of this year’s tour educators include Plant Amnesty’s Founder Cass Turnbull and Owner of Innovative Landscape Technologies Zsofia Pasztor. Look for WOWTA street signs, flyers and cards popping up all over Shoreline advertising the tour. You can find us on the web, on Facebook by searching WOWTA, or 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 is the place to be! We hope to see you on July 7th!
