MET: Who’s Watching You Tour (MEMBERS + FRIENDS)

September 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Who’s Watching You? – Do you ever have the feeling that you are being watched when you walk in downtown Seattle? You are probably right. Hundreds of eyes peer out from buildings in the city observing your every step. Neither human nor electronic, these ever-present watchers belong to dozens of carved and molded animals gazing out from Seattle buildings. Based on David B Williams book, Seattle Walks, this 1.7 mile walk through Seattle’s central business district will reveal a menagerie of beasts fabled, fantastic, and fierce, including lions, eagles, ducks, and walruses.

This tour is happening Friday, September 13th at 10:00AM in the morning. Please bring $20 to contribute to the tour cost. If you have binoculars, bring them to see the sights more clearly. There will be an optional lunch after the tour at the Pink Door. We will meet at the SE corner of Western Avenue and Blanchard St and the ending point will be Cherry Street and Fourth Avenue.

Bio: David B. Williams is an author, naturalist, and tour guide whose award-winning book, Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound is a deep exploration of the stories of this beautiful waterway. He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum and writes a free weekly newsletter, the Street Smart Naturalist.
