Open Mic

Doe Bay Cafe welcomes local and regional talent to Open Mic Night every Thursday from 7:30-10 p.m. in April. Doe Bay will donate a portion of sales from the event to the senior center. Bring your talents and your appetite for an evening of belly laughs, sparkling views and good food at an early performance on Thursday, April 18 at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and dishes range between $8 and $18.

Experiences with Earthwatch Institute

Experience is not required; curiosity is. The Earthwatch Institute is an international organization that matches scientific research with volunteers who assist the principal investigator in accomplishing the goals of the research. Earthwatch Institute has been working since 1971 all over the world mixing science with hope and progress. The projects involve branches of scientific field work such as animal behavior, archeology, anthropology, botany, geology, zoology and other areas, including natural history and climate change. Join Don and Sandi McVay as they describe some of their observations as volunteers on several different teams on Wednesday, April 3 at 1 p.m. at the Orcas Senior Center as part of the ongoing lecture series “Meeting of the Minds.”
