May 2017 Book Selection

On Monday, May 22, 2017, 3:30 – 5:00 the Natural History Society book club will discuss The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben.

Forester Peter Wohlleben makes the case that forests are social networks.  He believes that trees are like human families, with parents living near their children, communicating with them, supporting them as they grow.  Wohlleben shares his love of the forests in Germany in which he works, but his observations are relevant to forests in the Pacific Northwest as well.  Amazon’s description of this title states that “After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.”


At this meeting we will select books for reading the next few months.  Bring your suggestions for books you would like the group to read.  You can start by selecting a few titles from this list
