Crows, Coffee Habitat, and Olmsted Today at Library

Today at the Princeton Public Library Film Festival,
  • a movie on those highly intelligent animals called crows at 4pm. 
  • At 6pm, a short film on the importance of shade-grown coffee for migratory birds, and at 
  • 7pm, a great documentary about Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed many parks, including Central Park and Trenton's Cadwalader Park.
Pertaining to the 6pm film, coffee grows naturally in the understory of forests, but a strain was developed that could be planted in full sun, leading to the cutting down of many forests and resultant loss of bird habitat. Some coffee companies feature shade-grown coffee--a good way to support one's habit and habitat at the same time.
