We promised to deliver information about actions coming out of our work together at camp to protect forests, communities and climate.

Get these on your calendars, reach out where indicated and then give us what related climate-forest actions you’ve got so we can share them out as well.

This Sunday, 6/18 Art build in Olympia for Sat 7/15 ACTION in Allyn!

On July 15th the Mosquito Fleet, in response to a request from the Mason County Climate Justice and Lorax coalition, will execute a mid-range community awareness water action to place pressure upon the DNR to cease their attempt to clearcut Sherwood forest. To this point, hundreds of community members in the small Salish Sea city of Allyn have rallied, written letters, attended hearings and have not had their voices heard.

Every year in July the village of Allyn has a three-day festival known as “Allyn Days”. As the largest annual gathering Congressman Kilmer will attend for a “salmon bake”. The Mosquito Fleet will deploy its kayaks, sailboat and various vessels at the Allyn Days festival at a key moment to draw attention to the forest plans of DNR.

Because this action will take place in a small rural town, we are limiting the public face to locals who can best speak to their community. However, we are in need of art making assistance. On June 18 (Father’s day) there will be an art build in Olympia (address to come). We encourage any and all folks to help us make it. On July 15th (day of action), we encourage folks who want to attend Allyn days on shore, to take carpools from Olympia to attend.

We will be reaching out to folks directly for paddlers so please do not show up with boats unless we’ve confirmed. For further information contact: graham@mosquitofleet.us
