*2000 Years of Nature, People & Tools On and Around Camano Island*

Guest Speaker: John Osmundson
Saturday September 19th, 2015;  Noon - 3 p.m.
Sponsored by the Camano Schoolhouse Foundation
993 Orchid Rd, Camano Island, WA

Take time for a unique opportunity to visit our historic schoolhouse and
hear about Camano Island people, plants, places, animals, tools, landscape
changes, and transportation. Bring along historical photographs, stories or
objects for sharing or display.

In 1964 John Osmundson wrote “Man and his natural environment on Camano
Island”, a thesis submitted for his Master of Arts degree in Anthropology
from Washington State University. This is one of the first descriptions of
Camano Island prehistory and early 20th century development.  He wrote it
at a time when many of the early residents of Camano could recount their
early day experiences to him.

Mr. Osmundson is now retired from a 30 year career as an Anthropology
Instructor at Bellevue Community College.  He lives in Seattle and is a
graduate of Twin City High School (in Stanwood), the University of
Washington and Washington State University.

His lecture is part of the The Historic 1905 Camano City Schoolhouse Open
House to be held Saturday Sept 19th, 2015 sponsored by the Camano
Schoolhouse Foundation.

History talk will begin at 2 p.m.

Camano City Schoolhouse is located at 993 Orchid Rd, Camano Island, WA
