Calling all Nature Nerds! Celebrate Earth Day the wild way, with a round of nature trivia with other bio-buffs across the Northeast. There will be prizes for the top three winners…and laughter and fun facts for everyone else!
Join author Eileen Crist in conversation about how current ecological crises are linked to an implicit idea of human supremacy…and how a different future can be possible when this assumption is brought to light and questioned.
Jackie Morris, acclaimed illustrator and author (The Lost Words, The Lost Spells), will take us on a journey of color and sound celebrating the wondrous creatures with whom we share this planet. Jackie will share her magical watercolor paintings and read from some of her works, followed by a reflection on the ways art and language can bring people into deeper relationship with wild nature. See Jackie’s work at www.jackiemorris.co.uk
Join author Laura Waterman for a guided discussion of her book, Wilderness Ethics: Preserving the Spirit of Wildness. Laura will consider questions from the audience, which may also be submitted in advance.
Four poets—Rachelle Parker, Kathy Kremins, Sylvia Karman, and David Crews—will share their poetry inspired by Northeast Wilderness Trust’s Ambassador Preserves, accompanied by beautiful images of the landscapes.
