For Mothers Day on Sunday May 11th, IslandWood — the environmental learning center on Bainbridge Island — hosts a celebration of mothers.

The 1pm event starts with an illustrated talk on how nature’s species care for young.

The talk shows that – from the deepest oceans to the leafy treetops – mothers of all species are caring for their babies with dedication and courage.  It’s a celebratory look at the lives of wild animal mothers and the work they do to nourish, teach and protect their young.  

Then, the afternoon includes a stroll on the forested grounds and a return to the dining hall for a satisfying tea with savory and sweet treats.  The afternoon ends at 4pm.

In this podcast, IslandWood event organizer Christina Doherty talks with BCB’s Barry Peters.
