TCA is pleased to present a special Zoom Program
on June 21, 7 – 8 pm:

An evening with naturalist and award-winning author, Charles Hood

Lost Nature, Found Nature, Ugly Nature, Future Nature

Charles Hood will take us on a journey that will encourage us to expand our definitions of nature. What do we mean by “restoring” habitat, and what are the realities of “blended” nature — ecosystems that include native and non-native components?

The author of Wild LA and 15 other books and field guides, Charles has studied nature from the South Pole to the Amazon, and from the Atacama Desert to Tibet.

Tonight’s event will be part Zoom lecture and part conversation. Audience participation will be encouraged.

(For any questions you may have about Zoom, you can email James directly at JamesAlexakisLawyer@gmail.com)


Unfortunately, all hikes are canceled until further notice.
