North ShoreNorth Shore Book Presentation

7pm, Monday, June 1

Propelled by wings, fins, legs, and the wind, life has found a way to Minnesota’s North Shore for more than twelve thousand years. Some plants and animals have taken up residence in the region’s ancient mountains, others in its lakes and flowing rivers. Together, they weave a living fabric of sublime and fascinating beauty. These organisms come to life in North Shore, a comprehensive environmental history of one of Minnesota’s most beloved places.

Join North Shore authors Chel Anderson and Adelheid Fischer for a talk, slide presentation and book signing at Hartley Nature Center. Read more at http://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/north-shore . Books are available for purchase at Hartley.
