During the month of July, Fritz Haeg (author of Edible Estates) is doing a series of lectures and workshops called "Fritz Haeg's Animal Estates Regional Model Homes 4.0: San Francisco" at SF MOMA. Haeg has built a series of "model dwellings" to accommodate animals -- like the California Quail (pictured) -- that have been kicked out of our urban environments.
Looks like this Sunday is your last chance to catch this kid-friendly program.
We'll definitely be there checking out the activities. Haeg's whole program centers around creating habitats for animals that have been "displaced" by humans. How can we incorporate homes for these animals in our urban environments?
According to SFMOMA.org:
"The workshops will feature presentations by local experts on each of the animal clients, plus animal-related sound, movement, writing, and garment-making activities. Instructions on how to build the homes yourself will be distributed via postcards and the web. A geodesic tent in the museum's Koret Center will serve as Animal Estates' San Francisco headquarters."
