The City Museum will host the second Coffee & Collections lecture of the season at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday, Nov. 6, with "Party Animals and Stuffed Shirts: The Social Histories of Ravens and Eagles." This lecture, led by Sandy Harbanuk coincides with the museum's extended exhibit, All Things Ravens and Eagles.
After giving a brief discussion on the natural history of eagles and ravens, Harbanuk will focus on the social lives of eagles and ravens and their relationship with humans. Blueberry, a non-releasable raven from the Juneau Raptor Center, will also be in attendance to greet museum visitors.
As a member of the Juneau Raptor Center, Harbanuk has worked extensively in wild bird rehabilitation and has been Blueberry's caretaker and handler for 14 years. Currently, Harbanuk is working on a book titled "The Life and Times of Alaska's Bald Eagles: A Social and Natural History," which will be released next spring.
Coffee & Collections is a monthly presentation series offered October through April that explores Juneau's history, culture and natural environment. All Coffee & Collections presentations are held at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum located at the corner of Fourth and Main Streets.
