What Arboretum Crows Talk About: Part 2 – July 10
Featured speaker: Judy Lane
Back by popular demand, Judy Lane will teach us more about crow communication—on important topics of crow conversation such as ravens, eagles, and owls! Judy will share her extensive experience observing crows and use it to explain some of the behaviors of the crows that live in the Arboretum.
Judy Lane is an artist, author, and photographer. More than seven years ago, a single crow entered her life and this bird became the inspiration for much of her photography and mixed-media collage. She wrote, illustrated, and published a children’s book about her dog, Keiko, and his interaction with a community of crows (Keiko & the Crow, AuthorHouse, 2009). To find out more about Judy’s book and art work, check out her website, www.crookedfeathergirlstudio.com.

In April 2011, the Foundation introduced a new way for folks to explore the jewel of Seattle’s park system: “Arboretum Walks & Talks.”
On the first Thursday of every month, Arbor Circle, Legacy Circle, and Steward-level members of the Foundation plus their guests are invited to join us for a special guided walking tour. “Arboretum Walks and Talks” is hosted by our Executive Director, Paige Miller, and led by a diverse group of plant experts and enthusiasts. Each month, the tour features a different speaker/walk leader and highlights a different section or collection in the Arboretum. There’s always plenty of time for Q&A during the tours, and each one concludes with a light reception.
We encourage you to bring your friends—up to two guests allowed per member on each tour—to share in this informative and pleasant outing. The tours begin at the Graham Visitors Center. Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable shoes!
For more information about the tours, please email Randall Hitchin or call him at 206-325-4510.
