OWL Returns!!!

If you have a child you’d like to enroll in this age group (or one from another grade, you’d like to register your interest for), please fill out this Interest Form, so we can be in touch, and let you know when registration officially opens!

Join Us!  –(in person)
Sunday, August 8 at 11 a.m.

Music is said to be the gateway to the heart. This is especially true when we are not passively taking in the artistic contributions of trained others, but rather adding our own, joyous and unrefined voices to the whole, creating something that is infinitely more vital than the sum of its parts.

Join Bob Billstrom, Maggie Moore, Sandy Lynn, The Fitzmaurice Family & others for this All Ages Song & Story CircleWe’ll explore the power of hymns, chants, spirituals, silly songs and pop standards to re-connect us to each other and the heart that sustains us all.

Do YOU have a poem that has inspired or comforted you during this past year?
Do you have words of wisdom that held you in some way or helped you make it through this unusual time that we have all separately and collectively experienced?

We invite you to share!
Please gather that poem (written by any author, yourself or another) and simply bring it with you if you plan to attend in person.
If you plan to attend on Zoom, please send the poem in advance to Pat at so that we can post it for all to see on Zoom.

How Poetry Helped Me Survive
The award-winning poet Adrienne Rich has said, “Poetry is the liquid voice that can wear through stone.” These past months have been difficult and stony for many of us, but some have found meaning in the voice of poetry. This hybrid service, facilitated by Fellowship member Pat McCutcheon, is the time to share poems that have helped you make it through

Climate Action Campaign

Exploring Renewable Energy Futures in Humboldt County

A dangerously hot summer shows we need to act quickly on climate change. If Humboldt County residents are to eliminate climate-changing fossil fuels from our energy mix, we’ll need more renewable energy for our homes and businesses.  Where will that come from?

Find the answer to that question at “Exploring Renewable Energy Futures in Humboldt County,” on Monday, August 9, at 7:00 p.m., on Zoom. Local energy researcher Amin Younes will look at how we can develop renewable electricity in Humboldt over the coming decade. Amin is a fellow at the Schatz Energy Research Center where he studies Humboldt’s offshore wind resource, options to improve our connection to the statewide grid, and other local energy issues.

This event is cosponsored by HUUF’s Climate Action Campaign, so we hope you’ll attend. Join the Zoom program by visiting 350 Humboldt’s Facebook page, or register directly at:
