Mountain Lions, Water, & Sand: Eco-Narratives to Change Our Lives & Illuminate Our World

May 19, 2018 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Narratives of our relationship with nature and the challenges of sustainability increasingly infuse our culture. But how do we make these narratives personal and effective? Three writers guided by LA County Natural History Museum Community Science Senior Manager Lila Higgins will seek to answer these questions: Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, the California Director of the National Wildlife Federation on a mission to build a 101 freeway wildlife crossing, Florencia Ramirez who’s challenged the nation to reduce our water intake, and Vince Beiser, who’s telling the story of the hugely important but diminishing resource, sand.

Featured Guests: Beth Pratt-Bergstrom (When Mountain Lions are Neighbors), Florencia Ramirez (Eat Less Water), Vince Beiser (The World in a Grain – out in August 2018), Lila Higgins, Los Angeles County Natural History Museum – Moderator

Books available for advance purchase at Vroman’s Bookstore to be signed at the panel.
