David B. Williams: 'Too High And Too Steep'

Town Hall Seattle says
Today's Seattle residents would barely recognize the landscape that its founding settlers first encountered. As the city grew, its leaders and inhabitants dramatically altered its topography to accommodate their changing visions. In Too High and Too Steep, David B. Williams uses his scientific background, extensive research, and deep knowledge of Seattle to illuminate the physical challenges and startling hubris of these large-scale transformations, from the filling in of the Duwamish tideflats to the massive regrading project that pared down Denny Hill.

In conversation with journalist, Knute Berger (Crosscut), Williams will share this fascinating story, encouraging us to look more carefully at the natural world around us and reevaluate what we have taken for granted. He identifies visible traces of Seattle's former landscape so that we can better understand our city as a place that has been radically reshaped.
