Coming Up

So many good things are happening around Fidalgo — walks, talks, educational opportunities and rewarding experiences!

Below are some highlights of events coming up that we believe may be of interest to Transition folk. Our TF&F Events and shared sponsorship events are highlighted in green.


December 7th, Friday, 10:00 AM -12:00 PM
Whistle Lake Hike for Adults

The hush of Whistle near winter solstice couldn’t be farther from the madding crowd of summer. Enjoy our deep water jewel of the forest during the season of recharge, and feel the stored sunlight energy emanating from the green.

Meet at the Whistle Lake parking lot at the end of Whistle Lake Road.

Anacortes Public Library
Pinto Abalone Status Review
Despite a ban on harvest and the establishment of a captive breeding program, information available to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) suggests that remnant populations of pinto abalone are not reproducing in the wild and may be in peril of local extinction. WDFW is soliciting any available data on the species, and seeks public comment on a proposal to list the pinto abalone as a State Endangered Species.  Please consider attending. Or, submit comments and questions to:

Transition Fidalgo and Friends’
Monthly Gathering Presentation:

January 29, 2019, Tuesday, 6:30 pm
Earth’s Bipolar Disorder
Dr. Robert Bindschadler

“Dr. Bob”, returns, after his very popular
presentation about Ice Caps in September, to present the case for why
scientists are so certain human use of fossil fuels is a major
contributing factor to climate change.

He will explain the dire nature of the consequences in a
manner that is not only accessible, but in a form that leaves
people more confident in raising discussions with friends and
neighbors who have yet to accept the urgency of this issue.

Come listen and learn from one of the world’s experts.
