Cose Naturali – Natural Things by Renée Simard

We welcome Renée Simard to the Miller Library this September with her new exhibit, Cose Naturali – Natural Things. In the artist's own words: My eyes are attracted to colors and movements. My head preoccupied by thoughts, sounds, and even smells. The world we live in provides endless distractions…    Natural things. On walks, the beauty I see in tree trunks, weeds, wilting flowers can often stop me in my tracks. Images strike me and I can’t wait to put them on canvas.   The oil paintings and silverpoint drawings I am honored to show here illustrate moments when I filter out stimuli. This series, titled Cose Naturali – Natural Things, represents part of my artist’s relationship with nature. The exhibit is open during Library hours. Event interval: Campus location: Elisabeth C. Miller Library (EMLB). Event Types: Exhibits. Tuesday, September 6, 2022 – Thursday, September 29, 2022. For more info visit depts.washington.edu.

Forest Bathing Walk (in-person)

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to move in nature at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that the practice lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These sessions are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest.

Gardening with the Seasons: Fall (online)

Autumn is a dynamic season in the garden. Many plants are heading into dormancy, while others are in a period of active growth. Doing the right gardening tasks now can set the stage for next year's garden: adding new plants for seasonal interest or making changes to address problems observed over the past season. Some of the best things to do - or to avoid - at this time of year may seem counter-intuitive to some gardeners. This session will cover what to plant in fall, lawn care, how to prepare the garden for winter, and how to maximize seasonal interest and appearance. Cost: $28 Register online or call to register at 206.685.8033 This online class will be delivered using Zoom and will be recorded. The recording will be available for two weeks to those who registered to attend.   New to Zoom or need more information? Get Started Here. About this series: Plants and gardens don't live by the written calendar, but by the seasonal cycles and cues of changes in daylight, temperature, and moisture.… Event interval: Presenter: Christina Pfeiffer, Horticultural Consultant and Instructor, ISA Certified Arborist.

Forest Bathing Walk (in-person)

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US.

Plant CSI: Diagnosing Plant Problems in the Autumn Landscape (In-person)

Autumn provides us with the opportunity to look at overall plant health as temperatures cool, leaves change color and fall, and the days shorten. In particular, we can often see signs of tree and shrub decays as well as overwintering insect pests that are not present at other times of the year. This is also a great time to work on management techniques to help prevent a repeat of some of the problems found during the past growing season. Please join us for the third and final class in the Seasonal Plant Diagnostic Walk series! These are hands on classes that will cover how to diagnose common plant problems, including how to scout and monitor for diseases and insect pests, how to recognize what is not normal for a plant, and what kind of management plan will work best for the issue. Join us in the UWBG Washington Park Arboretum and learn skills to help you keep your garden plants healthy and thriving. Participation in previous Plant CSI virtual classes and walks not required, but encouraged. Cost: $35 Discou… Event interval: Event Types: Special Events. Workshops.

Cemetery Lichens Tour (in-person)

Ghosts and Goblins in a cemetery for Hallowe'en? Why not consider lichens as an alternative? They grow on headstones and trees in cemeteries and can tell us about air quality and the make-up of gravestones. Cemeteries can take on new meaning as a *fun* place to observe a symbiotic organism made up of a fungus and algae. You will also learn about common lichens found in an urban environment and take home a user-friendly chart that lists lichens found in your neighborhood. Always wondered about what lichens are and why they are found on your trees and Rhododendrons? Lichens are harmless to your plants and add aesthetic value to trees and shrubs. We can actually use them as indicators of air pollution! Join Dr. Katherine Glew and the UW Botanic Garden at Mount Pleasant Cemetery on Queen Anne Hill to get a head start on learning lichens from your local cemetery. You can enjoy Hallowe'en looking for lichens rather than scary witches and pumpkin heads. Cost: $45 Register Online Instructor Katherine Glew, Ph.D.… Event interval: Presenter: Katherine Glew, Ph.D. Curatorial Associate of Lichens at the UW Herbarium, Burke Museum.
