Earth: An Autobiography: Talk & Walk Series, Part I, Talk
Oct 2 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Earth: An Autobiography, with Professor Dave Sunderlin

We all know that reading is an acquired skill. Whether we’re turning the pages of a work of fiction, a news article, or a biography, we have come to examine not only the words in black and white, but their meaning, context, and connection with each other. In this process we not only learn more about some far away land or intriguing person, but we also learn about the author him/herself. And the more we read, the better we get at extracting understanding at all of these levels.
In this Nurture Nature Center Talk & Walk series we’ll learn how the Earth has been, and continues to be, it’s own biographer. In its own beautiful way, it writes of its deep history in the language of rocks, minerals, fossils, and landscapes.

Join us for an introduction to this language of the geological record (Talk) on October 2nd @ 6:30pm with Professor Dave Sunderlin of Lafayette College.

The following Saturday, October 4th @ 10:30am, join us for an outdoor walk and learn about what this language tells us of the Lehigh Valley’s history in the hillsides and valleys right in downtown Easton (Walk).*

Admission is free to both events, we hope you can join us!

*Registration required, please contact Brooke Kohler at 610-253-4432 or bkohler@nurturenaturecenter.org.
