The Whale Museum, 62 First St.

The Whale Museum is pleased to welcome Scott Rumsey & Lynne Barre, NOAA  to present Salmon Recovery as part of the 2014 Summer Lecture Series.

Lynne Barre and Scott Rumsey from NOAA Fisheries will give a presentation that highlights the connection between salmon recovery and orca recovery. Lynne will provide a brief introduction to the recovery program for endangered Southern Resident killer whales. Since Southern Residents primarily eat Chinook salmon, addressing threats and recovering salmon populations are an essential part of restoring the ecosystem that supports recovery of the whales. Scott will overview federal, state, and local efforts to recover threatened and endangered salmon, available funding and initiatives to advance salmon recovery, progress and challenges in implementing recovery, as well as opportunities for public engagement.

Orcas Center, 917 Mt. Baker Rd., Eastsound

Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

"Eat Locally" is a way of life for many residents in the San Juan Islands. The San Juan Island Farmers' Market features delicious island-raised produce, berries, colorful bouquets, eggs, and dairy products, as well as fresh local seafood, shellfish, and meats. The market also features freshly cooked and prepared foods made from local ingredients, grass-fed burgers, hot sausages, baked goods, pizza, crafts, and more!

The market is held year-round at Brickworks, in downtown Friday Harbor on Nichols Street. High season hours (July 4 – Labor Day) are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Low season hours are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The market takes place each Saturday from mid-April through October both inside and outside of Brickworks. In November and December it takes place on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, and from January – April on the 1st Saturday of the month.

Brickworks is Friday Harbor’s newest rehabilitated historic site. The building was built in 1920 to house the Friday Harbor Brick and Tile Company. Today it is the last surviving industrial building in Friday Harbor, beautifully renovated to provide a year-round farmers market and event space.
