> Saving the Places You Love, presented by Ned Tillman. Naturalist, outdoor guide and environmental author Ned Tillman will give a spirited presentation about how to protect and preserve the places that we and our feathered friends like to visit. Ned has used fiction and nonfiction, workshops, presentations, blogs, and interpretive walks to inspire people of all ages to fall in love with the outdoors and to become better stewards of these fragile lands. His hope is that each of us will become more effective champions of the wild spaces in our midst. His book, Saving the Places We Love: Paths to Environmental Stewardship, describes the major campaigns that have been waged to preserve the forests and parks all across the country. It was the 2014 Book of the Year as selected by Howard County’s Poetry and Literary Society, Community College, and Library System. He will have copies of his books and will be happy to sign them for you at the meeting. If you wish to read them ahead of time, they are all available on Amazon.
