Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve

Sponsored by:
School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences

Tom Fleischner will be speaking about his new book, Nature, Love, Medicine from 4-6 PM at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve.  Fleischner, editor of Nature, Love, Medicine, is a naturalist and conservation biologist, and founding director of the Natural History Institute at Prescott College, where he has taught interdisciplinary environmental studies for almost three decades. He edited The Way of Natural History and authored Singing Stone: A Natural History of the Escalante Canyons and Desert Wetlands.

"In Nature, Love, Medicine, nearly two dozen writers, poets, scientists, and healers reflect on what loving and needing nature really means to them. Read it, and you'll be stirred to ask the same of your own reflection—in the clearest, quietest pool you can find." —Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us and Countdown
