Many of you know of John Marzluff, author of Gifts of the Crow and Professor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington, who demonstrated that crows identify and remember people’s faces. Dr. Marzluff is coming to speak at the Bellevue Botanical Garden! In his latest book, Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife, Dr. Marzluff reveals that our suburbs and city parks are often remarkably rich in bird diversity and play a key role in preventing loss of species in the face of the dramatic human disruptions and impacts. His lecture will provide specific strategies everyone can use to make human environments friendlier for our natural neighbors.
