Join us on Monday: Tom Fleischner on “Why Natural History Matters”

I’m very excited about this special event we are hosting at Gilsland Farm on Monday evening:

Why Natural History Matters: Saving the Earth and Feeding Your Soul Through the Study of Natural History, with Tom Fleischner, Executive Director of the Natural History Institute

In his only east coast talk open to the public, Tom Fleischner — who leads the Natural History Institute and serves as Faculty Emeritus at Prescott College in Arizona — will describe how the practice of natural history provides the foundation for the natural sciences, conservation, a healthy society, and our own well-being.

Tom is a friend of mine, and an incredible person. He defines natural history as “the practice of falling in love with the world” — a perspective I think we could all benefit from hearing these days! Please consider joining us for this important conversation.

When: Monday, September 24, at 7pm
Where: Gilsland Farm Audubon Center
Tickets: $12 for members, $15 for nonmembers

In addition to sharing images from his naturalist explorations from Alaska to Antarctica, he will read from his new book, Nature, Love, Medicine: Essays On Wildness and Wellness. Copies of the book (as well as his previous book, The Way of Natural History) will be available for purchase and signing.

Reserve your seat today! I hope to see you there.
