Conservation Book Club - November 2019

Conservation Book Club

Love reading? Love nature? Then consider joining our Conservation Book Club! The group decides where and when to meet and which compelling books to discuss in the future. This book club meets quarterly. We discuss local and planet-wide conservation issues and are inspired by our readings, personal experiences, and good conversations.

The next meeting of our book club will be on Tuesday, August 6, at 7:00 pm. We will be meeting at a private home in Ashland for a discussion of For the Love of Rivers: A Scientist’s Journey by Kurt D. Fausch

Meetings are held throughout the Rogue Valley at homes hosted by book club members. This is a free club and all are welcome. Treats are welcome too. By the way, finishing the selected book is not a requirement for attendance!

Come join us!
