S'Klallam Foundation


S'Klallam Middle Schoolers, with the help of volunteers, teachers and staff, installed solar lighting at Point Julia, near Port Gamble Bay two weeks ago. Thanks to funds from the Russell Family Foundation, S'Klallam Middle School students have been benefiting from science camps throughout the year. This winter's science camp focused on alternative energy sources. S'Klallam Middle Schoolers (above) are helping to install solar lighting in one of the sunniest areas of the beach, the hill up from Point Juila Beach at Jake Jones Park, a very popular barbeque and party area for tribal members. 



March is the beginning of gardening season and the beginning of the Heronswood's Weekend Garden Opens. Please join us either Friday, Saturday or Sunday, starting March 2nd and ending March 31st for our Artist Exhibit. This year we are featuring the work of Melinda West, accompanied by noteable fiber artists Darlene Peters, Sue Skelly, Melissa Purser, and Polly Adams Sutton. Tour the garden, then visit the Heronswood Garden House Gallery to view beautiful works of art, created largely with cedar and other plant-based fibers.
