Naturally Curious Lecture Series: Environmental Connection with Keith M. Cowley

  • Kettle Pond Visitors Center 50 Bend Rd Charlestown, RI, 02813 United States (map)

Join Naturalist and Wild Forager Keith Cowley for a lecture about our relationship with Nature. Explore a foraged display of late Spring/early Summer wild edibles! His book Environmental Connection is a look back on a mindful year-long daily immersion into Nature, having been reviewed as "an easy and thought provoking read that marries genres in a way that speaks of a new generation of deep spiritual ecology; sort of the writings of John Muir and Leopold meet Awaken Healing Light of the Tao." Cowley will share reflections from his journals that showcase unique experiences and humbling encounters with local wildlife in their element and discuss how we can take responsibility for the maintenance of these environments through awareness and action, an initiative he outlines through New-Native Foundation. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
