Date(s) - 03/23/2017
Calling all nature enthusiasts and book worms for the Bucks County Audubon Society Nature Lover’s Book Club to be
held at the Doylestown Bookshop every 4 th Thursday of the month at 6:15pm! In March, we shall be reading and
discussing “The Forest Unforeseen – A Year’s Watch in Nature,” by David Haskell.
Biologist David Haskell uses a one-square- meter patch of old-growth forest as a window to the entire natural world.
Visiting it almost daily for one year to trace natures path through the seasons, he brings the forest and its
inhabitants to vivid life. Each chapter begins with an observation: a salamander scuttling across the leaf litter; the
first blossom of spring wildflowers. From these, Haskell spins a brilliant web of biology and ecology, explaining the
science that binds together the tiniest microbes and the largest mammals and describing the ecosystems that have
cycled for thousands of years.
The group is open to anyone who has a passion for the environment and wants to share and discuss with like-minded
individuals. To get started on your reading journey, visit our blog site, www.natureloversbookclub.blogspot.com! Here
