Ugly Nature: The Hidden Joys of Bugs, Bats, Weeds, and Vacant Lots with Charles Hood and Woodside Arts & Culture


September 3, 2021 | 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Nature is more than Yosemite and pretty flowers – it even happens after dark and in ditches and vacant lots. Poet and naturalist Charles Hood will take us on a journey that will encourage us to expand our definitions of nature, and will show how even small moments can provide intense joy.

The author of 16 books and field guides, Charles has studied nature from the South Pole to the Amazon, and from the Atacama Desert to Tibet. This event will be part slide lecture, part conversation, and audience participation will be encouraged.

Audience is limited, so please register early!
