IslandWood is pleased to host naturalist, archeologist, and fellow educator David B. Williams in our continued conversation and educational exploration of the natural and cultural forces that have shaped our regional lands, waters, and its peoples. We hope you join us for this relaxing evening.
In this talk, author David B. Williams tells the long story of the Sound, tracing human history from the earliest records more than 12,500 years ago to present. He will also consider overlooked species such as Olympia oysters, rockfish, geoduck, kelp, and herring, as well as salmon and orca. Witty, graceful, and deeply informed, these stories presents a fascinating and hopeful narrative, one that will introduce newcomers to the astonishing life that inhabits Puget Sound and offers longtime residents new insights into and appreciation of the waters they call home.
