NEW! Book Club in the Park

April 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Announcing! A New Book Club for Nature-Lovers:

 

Join us at this monthly gathering at the China Camp led by seasoned naturalist Harold Hirsch. April’s engaging selection will be The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley. We’ll gather to share the wondrous information revealed in this book. 

 

 

This month we will be reading  The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley

 

Exerp from Goodreads.com:

Starting with a simple question – ‘Which way am I looking?’ – Tristan Gooley blends natural science, myth, folklore and the history of travel to introduce you to the rare and ancient art of finding your way using nature’s own sign-posts, from the feel of a rock to a glance at the moon.

With Tristan’s help, you’ll learn why some trees grow the way they do and how they can help you find your way in the countryside. You’ll discover how it’s possible to find north simply by looking at a puddle and how natural signs can be used to navigate on the open ocean and in the heart of the city. Wonderfully detailed and full of fascinating stories, this is a glorious exploration of a rediscovered art.
