Don’t forget that Captain Fantastic, a new movie starring Viggo Mortensen that is partly set in the old-growth woods of Pack Forest, opens at theaters in Seattle this Friday, June 15! As part of a fun promotion for the film, as well, we’ve been giving away free tickets to an advance screening of the movie this Wednesday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at Pacific Place in downtown Seattle. A few spots have opened up, so send Karl a quick note to see if there’s still space!
Attention, denizens of Anderson Hall: From this Wednesday, July 13, through Tuesday, July 26, a middle school girls science camp will be using Anderson 22 during normal business hours (and, at times, the Anderson courtyard). The camp will run again from August 3 to 22. It is not a large group, and we do not anticipate any unusual noise or disruption to staff in Anderson Hall. But if you do experience any disturbances, please let us know right away, and we will make sure the camp operates as quietly as possible.
Also, we hope you get a chance to try the new Brockman Tree Tour App, which you can download for free anytime. This initial version is designed for Android phones, and we’d love to know what you think!
