Prominent nature writer Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, and the soon to be released The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder, comes to Portland on May 11 at 7:30 PM for a presentation and book-signing. This event is co-sponsored by Portland Audubon and the Oregon Zoo, and will be held in the Zoo’s large Cascade Crest meeting room. We’re expecting a big turnout for this free public event. There are no reservations or tickets for admission, so be sure to get there early!
While Last Child in the Woods explored how modern children are increasingly removed from experiences with nature, a situation Louv dubbed “nature-deficit disorder”, his new title looks at adult lives, often overwhelmed
by a reliance on technology and separation from the restorative powers of the natural world. The solution is the Nature Principle, which he describes in his introduction as “the power of living in nature—not with it, but in it. We are entering the most creative period in history. The twenty-first century will be the century of human restoration in the natural world.”
Please join us for an inspirational and thought-provoking evening! Call the Nature Store at 503-292-9453 if you would like a copy of either title reserved ahead of time.
