Join us for the Village Books/Whatcom Land Trust co-sponsored Environmental Conservation Book Club that meets the second Monday of each month from 5-6pm in the VB Readings Gallery. We discuss contemporary and classic texts on conservation, agriculture, and environmental issues in the Pacific Northwest. Occasionally, we also include fictional literature that inspires a sense of place and attachment to our native landscape. There's no commitment - come when the book appeals to you! Book selection and discussion moderation will explore a breadth of views for addressing the complex issues of conservation and land use. Authors DO NOT attend.
This enduring story of life, adventure, and love in Alaska was written by a woman who embraced the remote Alaskan wilderness and became one of its strongest advocates. In this moving testimonial to the preservation of the Arctic wilderness, Mardy Murie writes from her heart about growing up in Fairbanks, becoming the first woman graduate of the University of Alaska, and marrying noted biologist Olaus J. Murie.
