"who's watching you?" a walk and talk with david williams october 12th

35.00

Do you ever have the feeling that you are being watched when you walk in downtown Seattle? You are probably right. Hundreds of eyes peer out from buildings in the city observing your every step. Neither human nor electronic, these ever-present watchers belong to dozens of carved and molded animals gazing out from Seattle buildings. This 1.5 mile walk through Seattle’s downtown business district will reveal a menagerie of beasts fabled, fantastic, and fierce, including lions, eagles, ducks, and walruses, in addition to likely sightings of live birds and other animals in our city.


David B. Williams is a naturalist, author, and educator whose award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography explores the unprecedented engineering projects that shaped Seattle during the early part of the twentieth century. He is also the author of Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the CityThe Street-Smart Naturalist: Field Notes from the CityStories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology and co-author of Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum and is presently working on a book about human and natural history of Puget Sound.
