Environmental Book Group: The Wild Trees

Thursday, January 30, 4pm

Nature Learning Center, Albany

Join us for the inaugural gathering of Tin Mountain’s Environmental Book Group. We will be discussing The Wild Trees: a Story of Passion and Daring by Richard Preston. The book explores the remaining ancient trees in the redwood forests of northern California through the eyes of Steve Sillett, Marie Antoine, and the tiny group of daring botanists and amateur naturalists. What we find is a lost world above California, a world that is dangerous, hauntingly beautiful, and unexplored. Request a copy from your local library or purchase one from your local book seller. We hope you join us for the discussion.
