"After a failed apprenticeship, working her way up to head housekeeper of a posh London hotel is more than Sara Smythe ever thought she’d make of herself. When a chance encounter with Theodore Camden, one of the architects of the grand New York apartment house The Dakota, leads to a job offer, her world is suddenly awash in possibility. Sara accepts the opportunity and moves to America, where a person can rise above one’s station. The Dakota promises to be the greatest apartment house in the world.” Sara’s life is thoroughly altered with this chance to advance herself in work and her relationship to Theo and his family."

Ray has been out in the field capturing pikas and counting birds among other things. Adventure is a word that includes triumphs and mishaps of any fieldwork. She will entertain us with some of the ups and downs of spending time in some of the most fragile and changing ecosystems.
Ray studies and models the dynamics of plant and animal populations, focusing especially on threatened species with fragmented populations. Her long-term project involves research on the American Pika, a species most impacted by alpine climate change. Other recent projects include modeling bird population trends in National Parks of the Pacific Northwest, analyzing how plant community assembly is affected by ecological interactions among species, and modeling the dynamics of plague in prairie dog communities. She emphasizes outreach and education in connection with her research, mentoring students at all levels and acting as a scientific advisor for citizen science projects focused on the American pika, such as the Front Range Pika Project organized by the Denver Zoo and Rocky Mountain Wild.

“Ute Culturally Modified Trees” A Virtual Presentation with Lynn Albers, Vail Public Library’s Local History and Ethnobotany Specialist
April 1, 2021 –
Learn about trees that are living artifacts created by the Colorado Utes. A culturally modified tree (CMT) may be described as a tree that has been altered by an indigenous people, such as the Utes, for a specific purpose. Cultural modification of trees includes peeling the outer bark to obtain the precious inner bark for food, medicine, ceremony and practical daily life uses. Distinctively peeled Colorado ponderosa pines are rare and impermanent reminders of the Ute way of life.
This event will take place via Zoom Meeting. No registration required.
