This Land — A Northeast Wilderness Trust Fundraiser
Maine author and historian Jeffrey Ryan joins the Northeast Wilderness Trust and the North Branch Nature Center to host an evening presentation of his new book; This Land Was Saved for You and Me.
“This Land” tells the story of the evolution of America’s public lands through a series of inter-generational baton passes — initiated by visionaries with profound insight, not only of the essential need for public lands to exist but to identify the successors who could nurture and expand on their vision in the decades to come.
Ryan’s presentation will feature a few well-known conservation pioneers, but importantly, will also introduce some relatively unknown champions who were advocating for parks and forests — preparing the soil as it were, for those champions to succeed.
The folks from Bear Pond Books have graciously offered to be on-site to sell books. $5 from the sale of each book purchased will also be donated to the Northeast Wilderness Trust.
