Friends of Fort Worden Annual Celebration and Fundraiser

SUPPORT OUR FORT

Join the Friends on Friday, April 24, 2020, for an evening of fun, food, friends, and the opportunity to hear Pacific Northwest meteorological icon Cliff Mass speak on a subject of interest to all—the weather!

Our annual gathering will highlight the Friends’ achievements, acknowledge our incredible volunteers, and feature Cliff Mass discussing weather patterns unique to the Puget Sound basin. Cliff is a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington, writes a popular blog about meteorological phenomena, and has a regular weather segment on one of the local NPR affiliates. The Seattle Times has called him the “closest thing to a celebrity scientist in Seattle.”

Admission is free for FFW members and $15 for non-members. Tickets go on sale and member reservations (new this year) will be accepted starting early February. We look forward to seeing you on April 24!
