In the oversized, richly illustrated coffee table compendium Wildlands Philosophy: The Great American Tradition, author Tom Butler tells the stories of dozens of generous, conservation-minded Americans who have helped save the nation’s wilderness.  On Friday, March 16, the author will be presenting two free programs at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The editorial projects director for the Foundation for Deep Ecology, Butler is a longtime conservation activist focused on wilderness and biodiversity. On the heels of his Wild Earth: Wild Ideas for a World out of Balance, the book Wildlands Philosophy tells tales of struggle and success. He says he found both inspiration and a greater appreciation for the way protected areas have richly affected the American experience, offering blessings of beauty, wildness, and hope to future generations.

Early arrivals can save one extra seat each and then may explore the Visitor & Education Center or Indigo Trail before the lecture starts.
