In Nature's Allies: Eight Conservationists Who Changed Our World, author Larry Nielsen uses the stories of conservation pioneers to demonstrate that through passion and perseverance we can each be a positive force for change. 

In the engaging and diverse biographies of John Muir, “Ding” Darling, Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, Chico Mendes, Billy Frank, Jr., Wangari Maathai, and Gro Harlem Brundtland, readers meet individuals who spoke out to protect wilderness, wildlife, fisheries, rainforests, and wetlands. They fought for social justice and exposed polluting practices. They marched, wrote books, testified before Congress, performed acts of civil disobedience, and, in one case, were martyred for their defense of nature. On Friday, March 2, he will be presenting threefree programs at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.


Seating for the lectures is limited and available on a first-come basis. Arrive one hour early to assure seating. Early arrivals can save one seat each with personal items and then may explore the Visitor & Education Center or Indigo Trail before the lecture starts. Saved seats must be filled 15 minutes before lecture time or risk reassigning.
