After a year of planning and development, local author Keith M. Cowley will be signing his new book “Environmental Connection- A New-Native Initiative” at Maize n Manna this Wednesday (September 4th) during the Downtown Westerly Art Stroll Night. The book is a look back on a year immersion into Nature, in partnership with the Westerly Land Trust. For 6-8 hours each and every day, Cowley inserted himself mindfully in one of 6 land trust properties attempting fine-tune his language on how he maintains a connection with his environment. Selections from his journals showcase unique experiences and humbling encounters with local wildlife in their element. He challenges us to take responsibility for the maintenance of these environments through awareness and action, an initiative he outlines called New-Native Foundation.

Keith M. Cowley, author of “Presence”, wild forager and educator, is the Founder of New-Native Foundation, a non-profit in development. He is also the Naturalist/Program Coordinator for the Westerly Land Trust, and Marketing/Creative Coordinator at Tomaquag Museum.
