John has a rich background in plant science and horticulture, including five years as the Horticultural and Grounds Superintendent at the Bloedel Reserve. Presently John works with Botanica, Inc., a landscape consulting, design, and installation company he founded in 1990.

Brown Bag Lunch Series: Leave Me Wild
As baby season approaches, what should you do if you find baby wild animals that appear to be abandoned?  Most of the time the babies are not abandoned at all.  Parents have left their babies to forage for food, and the babies know to stay put.  Learn what to do if a baby animal appears to be injured or is in definite need of help.

Brown Bag Lunch: Southern Resident Killer Whales in the Salish Sea

An extended clan of Orcinus orca known as the Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKWs) socialize and forage in inland waters of Washington and British Columbia. People travel from around the globe to have a chance to glimpse them in their natural environment. The SRKWs form tight family bonds and offspring remain with their mothers their entire lives. They are intelligent, extremely social and undeniably charismatic, but unfortunately they are also very much at risk. Listed as endangered in 2005 their population has been slow to recover and their numbers are now at an all time low.

Certified marine naturalist Susan Marie Andersson has watched this wonderful iconic mammal from the shores of Bainbridge Island and will be talking about why they are in danger and what needs to be done to help them recover so that they are here for our future generations to experience. 

The Brown Bag Lunch Series is presented by Bainbridge Island Land Trust and West Sound Wildlife Shelter. This free series is a fun way to spend your lunch hour learning about the local wildlife in our community and the land that provides their habitat. Bring your lunch and join us for these interesting lectures. Open to all ages; $3 suggested donation.
