Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga in Bowman Bay! Remember how we just shared about Bowman here on NW Healthy Mama?!  Connect with the elements and take your practice to a new level. Cost is 25$ if they provide the board and 15$ if you bring your own. Preregistration is necessary by visiting soundyogaandsup.comand paying via paypal. Click here for more details. And here for the Bowman Bay beginner class.


Washington’s North Cascades is home to around 25,000 black bears and possible a handful of grizzly bears.

As omnivores, black bears and grizzly bears are more opportunistic when searching for food than carnivores, like cougars, which means they are more readily attracted to smelly human items, like your lunch, toothpaste, and trash. So, knowing how to play safe in bear country is as important as bringing a first aid kit and appropriate clothing for your adventure. 

Come on June 29th to the The Mountaineers Seattle Program Center at 7pm (doors open at 6pm) to enjoy beer, berries and bear stories from biologist, photographer, author and outdoor educator David Moskowitz. This event is FREE. Learn more here.

Hopefully you have some fun weekend plans! What will you be up to?
