Conservation Conversation – A JDCF Book Club
April 5 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
JDCF invites you to join our book club, Conservation Conversation, for a free series of weekly Zoom discussions. Starting April 5, we will begin with the final book in our 3-book series, Braiding Sweetgrass, facilitated by Andrew Townsend. You may join in for any or all of the 4 weekly discussions. To register and receive the Zoom link, click HERE.
This book club continues to look into the relationship of the Indigenous People of the Americas with their natural environment, and the changes that came with European contact and settlement. Each session will focus on pre-determined chapters so that you are able to read along during the month and come prepared with questions and comments. There is no fee to participate, but you will need to provide your own book. Audio versions of each book are available. A limited number of books will be furnished for those unable to purchase; please contact JDCF for details.
Our third and final book of this series is Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. As a doctorate in Botany, the author blends her scientific knowledge with her Native American wisdom and gives the reader a beautiful, respectful and useful look at how the combining of cultures can still bring about a greater world for all. For many, this book gives a template for a happier, more sustainable life.
