BREMEN and APPLETON — Once again Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is teaming up with Bremen Library and Appleton Library to present an environmental book club in Knox and Lincoln Counties focused on environmental issues.
The Bremen Library group will meet March 4 and 11, from 3 p.. to 4:30 p.m.
The Appleton Library group will meet March 18 and 25, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
In Our Wild Calling: How connecting with animals can transform our lives—and save theirs, nature journalist, Richard Louv in his tenth book explores the physical, mental, and spiritual connections to animals. Material in this book is a result of Louv’s research spanning four years in which he interviewed theologians, psychologists, researchers, wild-life experts, and indigenous peoples about relationships and interactions with animals.
Louv believes reconnecting with nature, including wild and domestic animals can address social isolation and loneliness that is pervasive in the age of technology, according to SWCD, in a news release.
Participants are asked to read the first half of the book before the first gathering. For those not wishing to purchase books, limited copies are available to borrow through local libraries or InterLibrary Loan.
There is no fee for the program. For planning purposes, participants are asked to pre-register by calling Knox-Lincoln SWCD at 596-2040 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
