Event Description

Biophilia Book Club will discuss Crow Planet: Essential Wisdom from the Urban Wilderness by Lyanda Lynn Haupt on Tuesday, August 13th at the Frick Environmental Center.


***Community Potluck dinner will begin at 6:30 with the book discussion to follow***


About the Book:


There are more crows now than ever. Their abundance is both a sign of ecological imbalance and a generous opportunity to connect with the animal world. CROW PLANET is a call to experience the wildlife in our midst, reminding us that we don't have to head to faraway places to encounter "nature." Even in the cities and suburbs where we live we are surrounded by wildlife such as crows. Through observing them we enhance our appreciation of the world's natural order, and find our own place in it.


Haupt, a trained naturalist, uses science, scholarly research, myth, and personal observation to draw readers into the "crow stories" that unfold around us every day, culminating in book that transforms the way we experience our neighborhoods and our world.


Potluck Tips:
*You are still welcome even if you don’t bring anything
*Aim to bring enough food for 6-8 people
*Bonus points for bringing your own dishes & silverware (but we have plenty here)

*Bring a friend
