(Friday, November 20th) Zoom Presentation by Author Emma Marris: Blurring Boundaries in a Changing Future
APLD Oregon invites you to attend a Zoom presentation by Emma Marris, author of Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World. The lecture will be the first in APLD Oregon’s new program series addressing our changing climate.
Marris has been compared by the San Francisco Chronicle to “the greatest environmental writers and thinkers of this past century, Rachel Carson and Aldo Leopold.” She challenges her audience to “revisit the definition of nature in our increasingly unnatural world” (Nature Magazine). As garden designers, architects, conservationists, nature-lovers and concerned citizens, APLD Oregon joins Marris in considering the pressing environmental concerns and questions of our time.
Her message about nature in flux, though challenging, is not all doomsday. Marris tells a compelling story that invites her readers to take another look at preconceived notions of preservation and offers new strategies for moving forward— a ‘menu of new goals’.
Though busy writing her next book from her home in Klamath Falls, Emma Marris has generously agreed to spend an evening with APLD Oregon to present “Blurring Boundaries in a Changing Future.”
