Benefitting the Northwest Stream Center Sustainable Infrastructure Campaign.
All the critters from Puget Sound to the “tricksters” flying above are talking about humans and the need for conservation and sustainability. For several decades, two humans have been listening and translating nature’s chatter into many enjoyable works that you can see, enjoy, understand, and love.
Tony Angell is a wonderful nature artist, author, illustrator, and educator. His works range from the nationally acclaimed K-12 curriculum Clean Water, Streams, and Fish: A Holistic View of Watersheds, to Puget Sound through the Artist’s Eye, to The House of Owls, to amazing wildlife sculptures in public places around the Pacific Northwest. http://www.tonyangell.net/
John Marzluff is a professor of wildlife science and an internationally acclaimed crow and raven researcher from the University of Washington who famously documented that crows can recognize individual people and understand human actions. He has also published research on wolves, pileated woodpeckers, grizzly bears, songbirds, and cougars. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/John-Marzluff or https://sites.uw.edu/sefsacl/
While each has authored several nature books independently, John and Tony teamed up as co-authors of Gifts of the Crow and In Company of Crows and Ravens. These two books, beautifully illustrated by Tony, make you appreciate the remarkably curious and intelligent aerial observers of human impacts on our ecosystem.
Attend Nature Talk and enjoy two great story tellers connecting wildlife and human awareness to conservation. With stunning images by Tony in the background, these two “tricksters” may delight you by mimicking some of their subjects. You will not only have fun listening to Tony and John’s Nature Talk, but your urge to make planet earth sustainable will be reenforced at the same time!
After Nature Talk, Tony Angell and John Marzluff will be on hand to chat with you and autograph books. Also, a few of Tony’s signed illustrations will be available with proceeds benefiting the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Northwest Stream Center Sustainable Infrastructure Campaign.
A bonus for attending this event is that before or afterwards you will get to enjoy an outdoor adventure on an incredible a 1⁄2-mile-long universally accessible Nature Trail. See into a Trout Stream through viewing windows and stroll on an Elevated Forest and Wetland Walk that winds through beautiful forests next to a salmon stream three feet above the forest floor and surrounding wetlands! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T55zEuM3FXo
Make reservations now for this special event at www.streamkeeper.org or by calling 425-316-8592. Admission is $30 and the doors will open at 1:00 pm.
The NW Stream Center Sustainable Infrastructure Campaign will result in the transition of the 1998 Visitors Building into a LEED Certified model of sustainability that helps fight climate change. “Solar power, energy efficient windows, doors, and appliances & equipment, rain collection systems all under a heat reflecting roof will be here,” says Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch. “It will be a place where homeowners and small business owners can visit and leave thinking I can do that.”
