Join Greenbelt Land Trust and the Spring Creek Project for a special reading by poet, essayist, naturalist, lepidopterist, and author Robert Michael Pyle. Pyle will read from his new poetry book, Chinook and Chanterelle (Lost Horse Press) and a new collection of essays, Through a Green Lens: Fifty Years of Writing for Nature (OSU Press). Rich in natural images, stories, and indelible episodes from the whole world around us, Pyle’s writings also track the territory of loss and grief as it rises into the higher ground of rediscovery, redemption, and re-enchantment. His poems and essays exalt the ordinary even as they find the extraordinary in physical details that we too often look right through. This event is part of the 8th Annual Natural Areas Celebration Week.
Robert Michael Pyle is the author of 17 books, including Mariposa Road, Chasing Monarchs, Where Bigfoot Walks, and Wintergreen, which received a John Burroughs Medal. He is also the founder of the Xerces Society and lives in Southwest Washington.
