Less than one percent of native prairies exist across the state of Texas. This conservation concern is the catalyst for more than 20 new works created by artist and naturalist James Prosek. Over the past two years, Prosek has traveled to grassland habitats across the state, ranging from urban restoration projects to unplowed remnant prairies, documenting the rich plant and wildlife diversity of these spaces.

Greater Fort Worth Sierra Club Environmental Book Club: Encounters with the Archdruid - Arlington

Dec 12 2023 - 6:30pm
George W. Hawkes Downtown Library
100 S Center Street Tomorrow Foundation Board Room
Arlington , TX

Book of the Month: Encounters with the Archdruid by John McPhee.

From Wikipedia - "Encounters is split into three parts, each covering environmentalist David Brower's confrontations with his ideological enemies. The book chronicles his struggles against miners, developers and finally the United States Bureau of Reclamation. McPhee blends traditional journalism — the reporting of facts and accounting of events, with thematic elements more common to fiction."

Come to the meeting whether you have read the book and/or article or not. At this meeting we will also discuss the next environmental/nature book or article we want to read.

Note the new location: This is a very nice meeting room and we are allowed to have food and beverages (no alcohol).
