Lonely Forest Concert to Benefit
Friends of the Forest
Mark your calendar for a Saturday, March 5, 2011 rock concert at the Port
Warehouse featuring The Lonely Forest. This Anacortes band is already being played
on radio and MTV. The event will kick off a national tour in support of their major
label debut album, “Arrows,” released by Atlantic Records’ Trans imprint.

Last year the band raised thousands of dollars for the reconstruction of the
trestle; this Friends of the Forest benefit is another example of the group’s
support for hometown causes, even while they are rising stars nationally. Look                                    The Lonely Forest

for more information soon on opening acts and advance tickets on our website. The Lonely Forest produced a video,
filmed at last year’s Anacortes 4th of July Parade for their new single, “Turn Off This Song And Go Outside.” To view it,

Happy New Year Forest Friends!
    Hope this issue finds you cozy and warm a er a hike in our frosty woods. True for me on this par cular day,
what an excellent reminder to get outside and enjoy the evergreen glow in the dark season. Wildlife sigh ngs
have been ample; from spectacular swans and river o er at Li le Cranberry Lake, to scaups, eagles and
cormorants at Whistle Lake. The unexpected usually punctuates the always steady presence of winter wren
and Douglas squirrel. A special recent treat, the winter sols ce lunar eclipse was surprisingly visible and
provoked a lengthy group howl from coyotes just outside my house.
   2010 was an excellent year for our organiza on and all of our forest programs. Groundwork is laid for another
banner year. Before we know it, the salmonberry will be in bloom and the winter wren will be singing its big
spring song as hundreds of Anacortes kids experience the joy of discovery in our amazing community forest lands.
    People o en tell me that they want to come on a community hike, and then just don’t make it. We have so
many great events in the next couple of months; please make the me to join a hike, a end Joe Gaydos’
wildlife presenta on on January 25th, and come to the Lonely Forest Concert on March 5th.
Hope to see you soon!

Forest Education Benefit a Great Success!
          The Friends of the Forest Benefit Event on October 23rd was once again very successful! Thank you to everyone involved
for helping us raise nearly $41,000 to support our wide range of forest education programs.
          Thank you to the Port of Anacortes for allowing us to use the Port Warehouse which was a beautiful and accommodating
space for all of our needs. Gere-A-Deli Catering outdid themselves with a wonderful array of appetizers, a delicious dinner, and
apple pie ala mode. Fine spirits were provided by Beam Global Spirits and Wine, and beer by Anacortes Brewery. Early evening
music by Spoonshine Duo and a later evening performance by Fidalgo Swing made the night complete. A highlight this year was
the addition of aerialist, Ginger Lee from Anacortes Pilates Studio.
          We offer heartfelt recognition and thanks to all of the individuals and local businesses that contributed art, goods, and
services for our silent and live auctions. Tracy Powell was our featured artist with his sculpture titled “Green Woman”. Thank you
to Bob Vaux for being our master of ceremonies and live auctioneer!
          Sponsors for the event have our deepest gratitude. Essential financial support came from Global Diving and Salvage
Incorporated, McMullen and Ochs – Attorney at Law, Shell Puget Sound Refinery, Barrett Financial Ltd., Island Import Garage,
Sebo’s Hardware, Skagit Runners, Watermark Book Company, Emerald Marine Carpentry, R. Charlie Collins and Ute J. Collins
DDS, and Trestle Coffee Company.
          The Friends of the Forest Board and many other volunteers gave tremendous energy and time to make the evening so
special. Keegan Janicula, with the help of Donatello, created decorations that transformed the Port Warehouse into a lovely forest.
Wanda Mull was in charge of the silent and live auctions. Patti Pattee and her staff at Watermark Book Company hosted our
September Art Walk and sold event tickets. Angie at How It Works created lovely posters, programs, signs, displays and table
cards. The Wrestlers for Life provided support with the set up. We also want to thank Skagit County for helping us achieve a
Zero Waste Event.
          And last but not least, a Grand Thank You to all who came to enjoy the party and contribute. Your love for our
community woods and strong show of support for our forest education program has meant a world of difference for our work.
In these challenging times, it is inspiring to see our community step up and collectively invest in our island’s natural future. With
everyone’s help, we will continue to provide all seventh and third grade students in Anacortes with forest field trips and classes,
forest discovery summer camp for kids, community hikes of all kinds for all ages, and a range of educational, stewardship, and
conservation activities in ongoing service to the Anacortes Community Forest Lands.

        In the Woods with Ranger Dave
            It’s hard to believe that 2010 has come and gone, and we are now looking into 2011. But before
       I dive into the New Year, I would like to reflect on our successes of 2010, and thank the trail users and
       volunteers who put in hundreds of hours of me to make your ACFL a be er place. Here’s a quick
       recap of 2010:
            We had a number of Eagle Scout projects completed in the ACFL in 2010, including a new trail
       bridge built by Gavin Murray and Troop 82 on trail 125. Another trail bridge was built by Ryan Ru er
       and Troop 82 on trail 249. Boy Scout Troop 84 conducted 2 service projects in the ACFL with one
       removing non-na ve invasive plants and another one picking up trash along Heart Lake Road.
             2010 gave us a successful hatching and fledging of 3 Peregrine Falcons on Mt Erie, with special
       thanks going to Volunteer Rick Machin for the many hours he put in monitoring the nes ng sit and
       repor ng his findings to ACFL Staff and State wildlife biologists.
             It was another banner year for ACFL Work Par es, with large numbers of volunteers showing up
       to par cipate in removing non-na ve invasive plants like ivy, holly, and yellow arch angel, repairing
       por ons of trails 202 and 304, repairing erosion areas along trail 101 and plan ng trees and na ve
       shrubs, and cleaning up trash along Heart Lake Road, just to name a few. The Anacortes Diving & Supply
       Shop also put on a work party, diving for trash in Li le Cranberry Lake for the Earth Day Celebra on.
             Did you know you have a person who represents you and your user group in the ACFL? The ACFL
       Trail Commi ee met mul ple mes this year to discuss and resolve trail issues, as well as conduct site
       visits in the ACFL. This commi ee also contacts me during the year to address specific maintenance
       issues that relate to their user group. The members are Dan Senour (hiker rep), Bruce Rustad
       (mtn. biker rep), Geri Rubin (equestrian rep), Marty Lamba us (motorcycle rep), and Denise Crowe
       (naturalist rep). This commi ee has volunteered many hours of their me to help make the ACFL a
       be er place. They have also helped out in removing downed trees on trails and other projects.
              A new trailhead kiosk was installed in 2010 at the base of Mt Erie on trail 248. This new kiosk
       provides informa on and regula ons on rock climbing and other issues rela ng to the south side of
       Mt Erie. It is also a place for climbers to post messages.
              That was just a sampling of the successes we had in 2010. Thanks to all who volunteered their
         me and energy in the ACFL! See you on the trails... Ranger Dave
