Art History Talk with Rebecca Albiani: 
John James Audubon and the Vashon Audubon Mural  
Wednesday, May 12, 11:30 AM
Livestream and in-person theater ticketed seating
For tickets and more information:

Born in Haiti and raised in France, Audubon came to the United States to escape conscription in the Napoleonic wars. He single-mindedly pursued his passion of studying and depicting birds, resulting in his monumental publication Birds of America.

Now, a mural of Vashon’s climate-threatened birds is being painted by Island artist Britt Freda with the intent of inspiring activism through art. Proceeds help fund stewardship of the Heron Meadow.

Birding by Ear: Sign up now for May 15 or June 5

Sue Trevathan and Steve Caldwell will lead an instructional hike of approximately 1.5 miles for 12 participants, starting at 7 AM at the Judd Creek Parking Lot (corner of SW 204th and 111th Ave SW). Participants will encounter a steep hill on SW 204th and then go south on Old Mill Road. Covid protocols apply.
