Know Your Islanders Talk

Dr. Deborah Giles: Eba, the Whale-Poop Sniffing Rescue Dog

Meet Conservation Canine Eba The Whale Dog, a poop-sniffing rescue dog in the University of Washington’s Center for Conservation Biology Whale Scat Program. Eba is helping Dr. Sam Wasser and Dr. Deborah Giles to better understand how to save the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales.  Giles will talk about how Eba finds whale poop, what analyzing the fecal matter tells us about the whales, and steps we can all take to help recover this beloved population of whales.

Intro to Online Zoom Meetings on Wed. Feb. 10, 3pm

Learn the Zoom video conference application features in a low-pressure environment! During COVID-19, many of us have had to learn Zooming on the fly or never had an opportunity to learn at all. This class will address basic Zoom features at a pace where you can learn and give you the confidence to attend–or even lead–a Zoom meeting on your own. We’ll cover using the microphone and video camera, reactions, screen views, and more!

Judy Newland: Exploring the Meaning of Textiles through Time and Place

Through textiles, we can explore art, society, politics, religion and more, making connections between cultures and through time. Textiles surround and swaddle us from birth to death, a part of the social fabric, bringing meaning to our physical, emotional, and spiritual lives. Join Judy on an adventure using natural dyes, material culture, landscape, and travel to explore textiles through time and place.
