VIRTUAL The Dinosaur Among Us

Tuesday, February 2 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtually all paleontologists agree that birds evolved from dinosaurs, and most even go so far as to state that birds are, in fact, living dinosaurs. The flood of new data coming from newly discovered fossil beds – primarily from China – has only solidified that position. Come learn about the structural and behavioral similarities between birds and the more “classic” dinosaurs they evolved from. We guarantee that you will not only be surprised as to how dinosaur-like birds are, but also how very bird-like dinosaurs were. You will never think about T. rex in the same way again!

Kim Adelson was a professor of psychology for almost 30 years. During that time, she earned teaching awards at 3 different universities. Before she switched fields in order to better study behavioral evolution, she earned a master’s degree in evolutionary biology. Paleontology has been one of her avocations since she was a child. She is an avid bird watcher and is on the Boards of the Black Hills Audubon Society and the Friends of the Nisqually National Wildlife Complex.

Contact Don Rose for more information or to get a Zoom invitation: [email protected]

During the presentation starting at 7:00, no audio or video will be allowed for attendees. Written questions submitted through Chat or Q & A can be answered at the end of the program.

VIRTUAL Anders Morley, Author of This Land of Snow

Tuesday, February 9 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Anders Morley, author of This Land of Snow: A Journey Across the North in Winter - a virtual Urban Ecology Center and Boswell event

The Urban Ecology Center and Boswell Book Company present Anders Morley, author of THE LAND OF SNOW, a "captivating memoir about backcountry adventures and one man’s journey of self-discovery - and an eloquent ode to the harsh beauty of winter," per Brenda Barrera in Booklist.

For this event, Morley will be in conversation with Olivia Raasch, Volunteer Coordinator and Community Educator at Urban Ecology Center. This event is free, but donations to Urban Ecology Center are encouraged. For more information, visit urbanecologycenter.org.

A passionate skier since he was a child, Anders Morley dreamed of going on a significant adventure, something bold and of his own design. And so one year in his early thirties, he decided to strap on cross-country skis to travel across Canada in the winter alone. This Land of Snow is an honest, thoughtful, and humorous reckoning of an adventure filled with adrenalin and exuberance, as well as mistakes and danger.

Ontario-based Anders Morley's work has appeared in New Hampshire magazine, The Globe and Mail, and Northern Woodlands.
