Winter Celebration

January 14, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Dispel the winter blues with Scott Weidensaul’s discussion of his newly revised and expanded 20th anniversary edition of his award-winning book Mountains of the Heart: A Natural History of the Appalachians at the 2017 Winter Celebration. Come in from the cold and have a cocktail or glass of wine with friends.

Enjoy an entertaining, thought-provoking, and visually stimulating presentation where Scott will examine the conservation challenges and successes that recent decades have brought to these seemingly timeless hills, and what the future may hold for them.

Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist Living on the Wind, about bird migration; The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery and Endurance in Early America; and most recently, The Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean.

Scott is a contributing editor for Audubon, a columnist for Bird Watcher’s Digestand writes for a variety of other publications. He lives in eastern Pennsylvania, where he studies the migration of owls and hummingbirds.

More information about this event will be listed on our website and invitations will be mailed to members.

Registration is required and will open this fall.
