Finding Connection in Nature

John Muir Laws, Author, The Laws Field Guide to Sierra Nevada

To many of us, the Sierras seem to be mostly rock and snow. Actually, they are home to a dazzling array of wildlife that most of us never see. Laws has seen it and lived with it, and brings to us a brilliant array of original drawings of the animals and plants of the Sierra. Equally interesting are Laws’ stories of living extended periods in the mountains with minimal gear, much as his namesake did over a century ago. Please join us for our Earth Day event.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on April 20, 2010.
