Cancelled: A World of Discovery with Nancy Lawson: Uncovering How Plants & Animals Communicate

October 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Oct 19 / 7 p.m. / $

Unfortunately, this event had to be cancelled. We are working to reschedule for the winter of 2024.

Our outdoor surroundings are vibrant realms, places where many languages are spoken, sometimes in sensory alphabets we humans have only just begun to decipher. Much has been written about gardening for human senses, but how do plants and animals perceive the world around them? Through science, heart, and our powers of observation, we can learn to create sensory refuges for the increasingly displaced flora and fauna that share our world.

Join author Nancy Lawson, the Humane Gardener, as she discusses her insightful and personal exploration of the secret lives of animals and plants. This talk covers topics from Nancy’s new book, Wildscape: Trilling Chipmunks, Beckoning Blooms, Salty Butterflies, and Other Sensory Wonders of Nature. A Likely Story bookstore will be selling Lawson’s books.

Advance registration required // $5 per person or $12 for a group of three

*GIVEAWAY!* By registering for this program, you will be entered into a raffle to win Nancy Lawson’s NEW book, WILDSCAPE: Trilling Chipmunks, Beckoning Blooms, Salty Butterflies, and other Sensory Wonders of Nature, that will be one topic of discussion at her talk. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠⁠
One entry per person. This opportunity closes on October 5 , at 3:00 PM ET. We have two books to give away thanks to Chronicle Prism Books, Chronicle Chroma, and PA Press. The two people whose names get pulled in the random drawing will be contacted by Howard County Conservancy directly via email.
