    Rainforest Players Present… @ DNR Conference Room
    Friday: 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

    Spinning Wheels Stories

    FORKS, Wash. – The Rainforest Players take to the stage for a second time since its theater burned to the ground. The evening opens with a dramatic reading of Louisa May Alcott’s Spinning Wheel Stories set in the late 1800’s. Everyone is gathered at grandma’s house for Thanksgiving and a bad snowstorm outside keeps the children stuck inside. The children, wanting to be entertained, beg grandma to tell them stories from her childhood. The one-act play is part narration coupled with imaginative acting out of the stories by the children and adults.

    The show features a large cast, including five sixth-grade children who attend Forks Middle School.

    Both humorous and warm-hearted, these tales will delight the audience.

    Next comes the latest installment of Punch & Judy, well-known classical puppet theater characters. The show starts with the news that Punch and Judy’s home has been completely destroyed in a devastating fire (art imitates life!). Punch decides to get rich quick by going into the cruise ship business. Hilarity ensues as various sea animals visit the cruise ship and the boat ultimately sinks.

    Lela Kriebel directs and adds her usual flair to the performances, giving them the warmth and insightfulness the community has grown to love. Kriebel has directed performances for the past 25 years and holds a graduate degree in theater, specializing in children’s theater.

    The Rainforest Players will perform the show twice. Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7, 2013, at 7:30 PM in the Department of Natural Resources conference room, 411 Tillicum Lane, Forks. Content is appropriate for all ages. Admission by donation at the door.

    Evening Talks at ONRC @ Olympic Natural Resources Center
    Thursday: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

    The Olympic Natural Resources Center welcomes you to its next Evening Talks at ONRC program.

     

    TOPIC                    Orcas, Humans and Salmon: Shared Destinies in the Pacific Northwest

    DATE/TIME         Thursday, December 12, 2013 – 6:30 to 8:00 PM

    PRESENTER         Rich Osborne, Ph. D. – ONRC Research Consultant and Neutral Forum Facilitator

    BRING                   Your favorite snack food to share

    LOCATION           ONRC, 1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks

     

    Rich Osborne will present an illustrated lecture on the interdependence of salmon, orcas and people of the Pacific Northwest from prehistoric times into the present. Drawing on over three decades of orca research while affiliated with The Whale Museum and the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs, Dr. Osborne will highlight the challenges salmon-feeding orcas are facing in the delicate balance for access to the limited salmon resources it shares with people. Key questions addressed in the talk are whether the scarcity of the orcas favorite prey, Chinook salmon, is already influencing the decline of this endangered population, and whether the orcas will shift their preference to other prey if salmon stocks decline further.

     

    Everyone is welcome. Topic is appropriate for learners of all ages. Please feel free to forward this invitation to others who might be interested in this topic.
