Backyard Naturalists @ John Paul Landing Environmental Education Center
Feb 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

From our local parks to our backyards or balconies, nature can be found almost anywhere as long as we remember to look for it. This monthly program will help you learn more about the natural world around your home and how you can provide for it. In each informal class we will spend most of our time outside, using a variety of methods to observe and identify our flora and fauna. You may want to bring a hat, optics, and a notebook.

This program is best suited for adults and kids ages 10 and up.

Earth Church @ online

Join Jim Blackburn, Professor in the Practice in Environmental Law at Rice University, who will discuss his new book, Earth Church, which he co-authored with artist Isabelle Scurry Chapman. Earth Church is a book about Earth-based spirituality, a subject that will become much more prominent in a future defined by a changing climate and the creation of a new economic system that is circular rather than linear. At the center of Earth-based spirituality is the Earth itself, that wonderful planet without which we would not be.  Blackburn will weave a narrative around the poetry and art of Earth-based spirituality. Time for interactive discussion with the speaker will be provided.  Please register for this talk on www.eventbrite.com. Contact Lisa Brenskelle at gcs.lrc@gmail.com with any questions.
