Those of us who spend time on the water may often wonder what nature once was before colonialism and industrialization and imagine what a future, wilder world could be. Join us for an opportunity to hear from bestselling, local author J.B. MacKinnon who will share his vision of the future of nature. A Zoom link is below — public welcome! There will be breakout rooms at the end of the meeting.
