MAP Enrichment Programs shared:
This “observation station” is a favorite for young scientists at forest school. They’re not always eager to release their catches back into the wild but they dutifully do it. Today this group eagerly released this little garden snake (without any prompting) after only a few minutes of observing.
Asked: Does anyone know if I can still send my son up for football? He changed his mind way last minute.
Answered: Yes, we will have late sign ups 5 - 7 PM June 12 at the high school football field.

And: Fighting Germans and Jim Crow: role of black troops on D-Day
Roughly 2,000 African American troops are believed to have hit the shores of Normandy in various capacities on June 6, 1944. Serving in a U.S. military still-segregated by race, they encountered discrimination both in the service and when they came home. But on Normandy, they faced the same danger as everyone else.

Washington State Attorney General: Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women
AG Ferguson: "I was proud to assist the Washington State Patrol on this report, and commend all those who worked on this effort. We must have a sense of urgency in addressing the issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. In addition to supporting legislation last session that will improve data collection on MMIW and create two tribal liaisons to help build relationships between tribal communities and law enforcement, my office is exploring how we can be helpful in supporting law enforcement’s efforts in investigating these cases, finding justice for victims, and bringing these women home.” Click below to learn more. #MMIW
