“Crows in the Arboretum” – May 2
Join Judy Lane on May 2 to learn about crow communication. She will describe her experience with a crow pair and its extended family over a six-year period and discuss the crows that live in the Arboretum.
Judy is an artist, author, and photographer. Over six years ago, the crow became an inspiration for her photographs and mixed media collages. She also wrote, illustrated, and published a children’s book about one of her dogs meeting a crow at the beach (Keiko & the Crow, AuthorHouse, 2009).

In April 2011, the Foundation introduced a newway 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.
