Join KEEN for our Keynote speaker dinner - John Marzluff is a James W. Ridgeway Professor of Wildlife Science University of Washington.
He'll be speaking on his new book, "Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife"
We all know that human development is threatening our environment. Runoff pollutes our streams. Homes and businesses encroach on wilderness habitat. Energy use warms the planet. Too many species are in decline. And yet… for some of our most charismatic wild creatures, suburban and urban habitats offer surprising opportunities to thrive.

His previous books include, In the Company of Crows and Ravens (with Tony Angell), Dog Days, Raven Nights (with his wife Colleen), and Gifts of the Crow (with Tony Angell).
