The Elwha River is the largest river on the peninsula and historically had the largest salmon runs until it was dammed in the early 1900’s. Now 100 years later the dams are gone – the largest dam removal in US history - and the salmon are returning to their original habitat. Indulge your inner scientist and sense of adventure as you visit the Elwha River and learn about the dams from historic, cultural, and scientific perspectives. You and your family will conduct scientific experiments in the Elwha River ecosystem, tour the lower Elwha River, experience restoration in action, and spend time relaxing on the beautiful shores of Lake Crescent. Tuition includes meals, lodging, and all educational experiences.

In this course, kids will get real experience building with real tools. Children will learn to safely use hammers, nails, handsaws, wrenches, nuts, bolts, drills and a variety of construction materials to build creative wooden projects. We will sketch, discuss design elements, build, and decorate our constructions. This is old-fashioned hands-on learning with contemporary creative (and environmental) values! Depending upon the abilities and interests of the students, we will undertake both individual and collaborative projects. When: Thursdays, April 23 through May 28 Time: 4-5:30 pm Length: Six weeks Age: 7-11 years old Cost: $100 (includes all materials and tools) Enroll: http://www.seattlerecreative.org/enroll/ About the Instructor Todd Shwayder earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Architecture & Design, and worked several years as a draftsman for and architectural project manager in San Rafael, CA before studying natural building and furniture construction at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont. Todd then travelled across the U.S. and eventually to Hawaii helping families and small communities with natural building construction and permaculture farming. However, it was furniture design that brought Todd to Seattle where he started a small woodworking shop in Fremont. This personal shop turned into a shared community workspace where artists and craftsman came together to work with their hands. His passion for shared creation flourished after receiving a Master’s Degree in Environment & Community from Seattle’s Antioch University. Todd now runs the Tool Library and Well Home Program at the Phinney Neighborhood Association where he plans educational programs focused on living sustainably and home maintenance while teaching people the tools and tricks of the trade. Todd hopes to inspire future generations of builders, artists, and engineers by teaching children’s workshops at Seattle ReCreative.
