Nature’s Narratives: Mountains of the Heart

January 10 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

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 the reading experience.

Stretching almost unbroken from Alabama to Belle Isle, Newfoundland, the Appalachians are one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. In Mountains of the Heart, renowned author and avid naturalist Scott Weidensaul shows how geology, ecology, climate, evolution, and 500 million years of history have shaped one of the continent’s greatest landscapes into an ecosystem of unmatched beauty.

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.
