Nature’s Narratives: A Sand County Almanac
December 11, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives” is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum where readers come together to discuss a book once a month and share in their reading experience.
A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold creates astonishing portraits of the natural world exploring the breathtaking diversity of the unspoiled American landscape—the mountains and the prairies, the deserts and the coastlines. Conjuring up one extraordinary vision after another, Aldo Leopold takes readers with him on the road and through the seasons on a fantastic tour of our priceless natural resources, explaining the destructive effects humankind has had on the land and issuing a bold challenge to protect the world we love.
The discussions are free and open to the public. Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion.
Books will not be supplied, but one copy of each is available in the Scott Horticultural Library for check-out and members of the Scott Arboretum enjoy lending privileges. Call to register 610-328-8025. Limited to 12.
