‘The Hidden Lives of Owls’ with Naturalist Leigh Calvez

Thursday, June 8 at 7 PM
Land Trust Building
Free and Open to the Public

Please join us on Thursday June 8 at 7:00 PM for a presentation of The Hidden Lives of Owls. Naturalist Leigh Calvez pursues eleven different owl species—including the Barred, Flammulated, Northern Saw-Whet, Northern Pygmy, Spotted, Burrowing, Snowy, and Great Gray. Calvez makes the science entertaining and accessible through the stories of the people who are obsessed with these birds and her own avian adventures in the field.

Leigh Calvez is the author of the New York Times bestselling book The Hidden Lives of Owls: The Science and Spirit of Nature’s Most Elusive Birds. Leigh studied Humpback Whales in Massachusetts and on Maui, along with Spinner Dolphins on the Big Island of Hawaii. Her interest in the natural world led her to nature writing. Leigh’s work has been published in American Nature Writing: 2003 by Fulcrum Books and in an anthology for Sierra Club Books entitled Between Species: Celebrating the Dolphin-Human Bond. She has also written articles and essays that have been published in High Country News, Ecologist, Ocean Realm, Christian Science Monitor, Seattle Times, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and Bainbridge Island Magazine. She is a writing coach and teaches private writing classes. 

Event is Free and Open to the Public.
