Nature Talk: “Ancient Places – The Natural History of the Northwest” with Jack Nisbet

March 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Youngsters perch on the 15 1/2 ton Willamette meteorite, found in 1902 by Ellis Hughes in a field south of Portland.

Join us as Spokane naturalist and writer, Jack Nisbet, paints a picture of our Ancient Places by recounting the natural history of the Northwest.

“In Ancient Places, author Jack Nisbet masterfully illuminates the lively chemistry that exists between people, their history, and the landscape of the Pacific Northwest. Through his copious research of the region’s geology, natural ecosystems, cultural events, and people, Nisbet weaves compelling tales that give insight to this remarkable land.  He explores the forces and events that shaped it and how we in turn are shaped by the places where we live.”
     – Marcy Houle, author of The Prairie Keepers
