Frederick Douglass, Gerrit Smith, Harriet Tubman, Beriah Green and many others come to center stage, as do important events such as the "Jerry Rescue" in Syracuse in 1851. Audiences are encouraged to share their local stories of "Freedom's Trail." Location: Seneca Museum, 89 Fall Street, Seneca Falls

To Know the Crow: Insights and Stories From a Quarter Century of Crow Study
What: Monday Night Seminar When: April 21, 7:30 p.m. Where: Cornell Lab of Ornithology, 159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca Speakers: Anne B. Clark, Binghamton University; Kevin McGowan, Cornell Lab of Ornithology Title: To Know the Crow: Insights and Stories From a Quarter Century of Crow Study Description: American Crows have followed us into our suburban and urban neighborhoods, making them one of our most familiar birds. They have socially intricate lives, with more complex goals than converging at your local dumpster—in fact, socially, they are probably more like us than any primate. Ithaca is home to the longest-running study of marked American Crows anywhere: it is now 26 years since Kevin McGowan at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology first began banding them. Kevin and collaborator Anne B. Clark of Binghamton University will tell some of their stories, including tales of family values and treachery, stay-at-homes and travelers, dynasties and disease. Admission: Free Contact: 800-843-2473, cornellbirds@cornell.edu
