Parkwood Elementary is home to "Discovery Forest" by artist Sumi Wu

Discovery Forest artwork and photo by Sumi Wu

Parkwood Elementary is home to "Discovery Forest" by artist Sumi Wu, in partnership with the Washington State Arts Commission

"Discovery Forest" asks you to see how individual, small elements contribute to the larger overall imagery of the artwork. The artwork is made of seven, six-sided, painted steel columns with small cut out shapes throughout. 

As you walk around the balcony level at the school, the columns create different scenes. Small-scale images of nature native to the Pacific Northwest add up to form the larger imagery.

You can learn more about the piece and Sumi Wu, including a time-lapse video of the installation here:
https://www.arts.wa.gov/my-public-art-portal/

Committee members who brought this art to Parkwood were:
  • Solie Calhoun, Parkwood Student
  • Tainia Tuilevuka, Parkwood Student
  • Christian Mason, Parkwood Parent
  • Laura King, Shoreline School District Art TOSA

For the Birds: Water the Birds, not your lawn

Chestnut-backed Chickadee cooling off. Photo by Craig Kerns

By Christine Southwick

Your dormant lawn will recover this fall — dehydrated birds may not!

It’s easy to provide water for birds, ranging from ponds, fountains and bird baths down to a plastic plant pot liner placed where you can watch it.

Wilson's Warbler bathing. Photo by Chris Southwick
All you have to do is keep the water reasonably clean, and make sure that the water doesn’t get too hot if you use a shallow bowl that sits in the sun.

Moving water, especially falling water, will attract migrants as they fly near your property and hear the welcome sound of often hard to find water.

They will veer toward your yard, stop, and fill up with much needed water, often saving their lives, especially now that many of their migration drinking stops have become dry. 

Some may even take a quick bath, allowing them to cool down, refresh and take a much-desired rest before continuing on. 

And if your yard offers food by having native plants with bird-enticing bugs or fruits, or bird feeders, many birds will add your yard to their migration rest stops both going and returning.

A birdbath can be as small as a plate, as long as it is in a safe location from cats and isn’t too deep. 

Birds don’t swim, so a couple of large rocks will allow them to stand, splash and drink. 

My dripper/mister drips down into two ground bird baths, around which I have a decorative metal fence on three sides to discourage wandering cats, and on the back side of this waterfall I planted salmonberries for the same reason.

Migrants like MacGillivray’s Warblers, Western Tanagers, and Swainson’s Thrushes have stopped at my water setups during many of their migrations. Resident birds use my fountains daily, year-round.

Red-breasted Nuthatch drinking at a fountain.
Photo by Craig Kerns
Fountains will attract birds because they can hear and see moving water. 

Fountains recirculate the water, which is good conservation, and offers a pleasant babbling sound. 

They are easy to set up, can be moved if you so desire, and offer beneficial and enjoyable decoration.

A small pond will often attract different birds than a bird bath, especially if there is a small moving element. 

A waterfall or pond is a major investment in work, but oh, the birds it will bring in!

Make your yard a bird magnet. Both you and the birds will be glad you did.

Sally Yamasaki: Gratitude for a beautiful evening

Neighbors enjoying the night at Battle of the Bands

By Sally Yamasaki

There are moments in life where you feel such a high level of positivity in your community that you forget all about the woes of the world and just feel joy. That moment was Saturday night at the Shorelake Arts Battle of the Bands held in Lake Forest Park’s Animal Acres Park.

JAMN take their turn on stage
Photo by Sally Yamasaki
An audience of all ages, from young children, teenagers, young adults, and yes - us senior citizens -  gathered together in our local park to listen to Five Bands “battling” to win first prize. 

It almost seemed a misnomer to call it a battle as all of the bands were grateful and supportive of each other as artists who all shared a common love of expressing themselves with music. 

Children's dance-off photo by Sally Yamasaki

As I watched the children dancing with their unrestrained delight enveloping the audience with their exuberance, I felt grateful to ShoreLake Arts and the City of Lake Forest Park for providing us with this beautiful evening.

  2. diabetes and endocrinology (No. 7)
  3. ear, nose, and throat (No. 24)

  6. obstetrics and gynecology (35)
  7. orthopedics (47)

“Our U.S. News rankings highlight the outstanding work of UW Medicine’s 39,000-plus faculty, staff, students and trainees in support of our mission to improve the health of the public,” said Dr. Tim Dellit, interim CEO of UW Medicine and interim dean of the UW School of Medicine.
