10:00 pm – The 4th of July Finale 
Due to unfortunate circumstances, the Shore Club Members and their neighbors will not be producing a fireworks show this year.  However, the City of SeaTac with additional sponsorship support from their commercial sponsors will produce a fireworks show launching from the public park fishing docks. The display will not be visible from the northwest and northeast shorelines, therefore all residents are invited to view the show by boat or make arrangements with neighbors for viewing from the South and West shores.

The Board Members of the Angle Lake Shore Club wish to remind our neighbors that possession and discharge of private fireworks is illegal within SeaTac city limits.

A special shout out in recognition to the many volunteers who donate their time to help plan, coordinate and execute these events. Speaking on behalf of the community, your efforts are most appreciated!

Have a Happy and Safe Independence Day Celebration!

The Lake Weed Watcher Program trains volunteers to survey for aquatic weeds in small lakes in King County, Washington. Volunteers are trained to identify both native and non-native aquatic plants.  The goal of the project is to watch for populations of invasive weeds that are not currently known to occur in King County or that have a very limited distribution, but have the potential to spread and cause damage.  Detecting these weeds early allows us to stop them before they get too entrenched to remove.

The training will cover:
  • Plant identification
  • Survey method
  • Data entry and submittal
The County Program provides:
  • Training in survey methodology and plant identification
  • All necessary survey equipment (other than that mentioned below)
  • Plant identification materials
Volunteers need to provide:
  • A small boat (e.g. canoe) and a place to launch it (if you don't live on a lake we can help you choose a lake with a public boat ramp)
  • Personal flotation device (PFD) and any other required water safety equipment
  • Ability to attend one this training session
  • Approximately one field day in early July and one field day in late August or early September
The majority of the session be in the “classroom” however will also include time at the waterfront at the end of the training for more plant ID and equipment use training.

“We’ve had good participation in the program last year and hope to expand participation this year” says Joe Neumann, Noxious Weeds Control Specialist with the Department of Natural Resources, King County. “The training is open to returning and new volunteers. Please feel free to relay this invitation to anyone interested in helping keep lakes healthy.”

To sign up for the training, contact Joe Neumann or at 206-477-4331. Ben Peterson can still be reached at or 206-477-4724.
