Shade: A story about a very smart raven with Author Diane Phelps Budden

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a bird as a friend? Join us to learn about ravens – one of the smartest animals in the world – and hear how Diane decided to write about Shade, a particularly intelligent raven that lives in Arizona. We will start with a walk around the Garden to learn how to look at birds, followed by a reading of the book by the author. Each family will receive a signed copy of the book.

This class is designed for families with children ages four to 13, although children 17 and under are welcome.
