Audiences all over North America are falling in love with the funny, upbeat Good Lovelies. Winners of the 2010 Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) and a nominee in 2012 for Roots Album of the Year, as well as being awarded Vocal Group of the Year in 2011 at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Good Lovelies are making waves across Canada, the United States, and now in the UK and Australia.

The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends. Part folk-roots, part Western Swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and, on stage, funny repartee drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road.

Time and distance had a profound effect on events as they unfolded during the Pig War crisis of 1859 as installation of the transcontinental telegraph was two years away and the Pony Express did not come into being until 1860.

Learn how and when the first telegraph came to San Juan Island, as well as its context nationwide in the mid-1800s, in an illustrated talk with Park Ranger Doug Halsey.

Word of Kaiser Wilhelm I’s decision regarding the disposition of the San Juan Islands on October 24, 1872 arrived in Victoria a day after Wilhelm spoke the words in Berlin, Halsey said. Communication with the East Coast had gone from overland wagons to swift clipper ships, from overland stagecoach to steamship and rail passage via the Isthmus of Panama. The famous Pony Express briefly accelerated communication starting in 1860, but was put out of business on Oct. 24, 1861, the day the first transcontinental telegraph was completed.

Learn how glaciers in the Pacific Northwest have changed over the last 100-150 years in a presentation by Mount Rainier National Park Physical Scientist Rebecca Lofgren.

Lofgren will focus on how changes have been measured and documented on glaciers within Olympic National Park, North Cascades National Park and Mount Rainier National Park, and discuss the impacts of those changes.

She has been working at Mount Rainier National Park for more than 12 years as part of the National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring Program, and is specifically involved with the long-term monitoring of glaciers, climate, mountain lakes and air quality at Mount Rainier National Park. She also travels regularly to Olympic and North Cascades national parks.
