Help us kick off the 2021 History After Hours series for ages 21+! Eventually, we’ll go back to holding these evening events live in the History Museum. For Living Washington, join like-minded history, nature, and beverage lovers online!

We’ll celebrate living things in the State of Washington and explore how they’ve impacted us throughout history. From butterflies to beavers, marbled murrelets to marmots, and ferns to fungi, explore how animal and plant history connects us all!
Guests will hear from these amazing presenters and note, there’s a craft project and a mixology lesson included:
  • Maria Mudd Ruth, author of “Rare Bird: Pursuing the Mystery of the Marbled Murrelet”
  • Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife who first learned about our coast’s shellfish from his father and grandfather
  • Alysa Adams, interpretive specialist at the Mount St. Helens Visitor Center who will lead a fun craft!
  • Julie Nelson, Education & Outreach Coordinator at Methow Beaver Project who will describe how to embrace our incredible, and sometimes challenging, beaver residents
  • David Wheeler, WSU Dept. of Plant Pathology discussing fantastic fungi
  • Robert Michael Pyle, butterfly expert and author sharing early lepidopterist tales
  • Harvest Moon Howell, Quinault storyteller who will regale us with the legend of the Bear and the Heron
  • Renee Cebula, our favorite cocktail historian mixing us another dreamy concoction
