Time:  7am PT  /  8am MT  /  9am CT  /  10am ET
Host Organization:  Severson Dells Nature Center — Rockford, IL
Price:  Free (donations accepted)

Join Jessie Crow Mermel for a virtual gathering to discuss some of the leading environmental writings of the day that can help us navigate these uncertain times. What lessons from nature can we hold dear while we are sheltering in place? This group was designed to help us feel connected as a community and to the earth during this time. Reading selections will be primarily curated from, but not limited to, authors who have visited Severson Dells Nature Center over the years, such as Robin Wall Kimmerer, Brian Doyle, Scott Russell Sanders, Carrie Newcomer, Kathleen Dean Moore, Dave Foreman, Katy Lee, Robert Michael Pyle, Doug Peacock, and more. We will be making selections of essays and prose that are available online so that anyone can participate. Selections will be posted once a week. Participants can discuss materials through the discussion thread on the Facebook Group or by joining on a weekly video meeting. Participants can opt in or out of any writing they choose.
