Speaker: Ian Evans, Environmental Journalist and Fourth Universalist member

It’s easy to read about the degradation of the natural world out there, but it can be difficult to recognize nature in your own life, and what you can do you preserve it. From long lost woods, to elaborate mating displays, to underwater reefs, New York City is filled and surrounded by the natural world – but one that can be hard to recognize because it intersects so closely with our own lives, and often violates our cultural ideas of nature. By recognizing our local ecology, and the changes within it, we can take local actions with lasting solutions.

As an environmental journalist, and someone who is still getting used to life in New York, these are topics that Ian has thought about a lot. He looks forward to sharing his ideas, and hearing your experiences.

This event is part of a new monthly adult education program at Fourth Universalist! Every third Wednesday of the month, we host a speaker or discussion, touching on issues from religion to current events, Unitarian Universalism to life’s great questions. We’ll have opportunities for discussion and connection, as well as food and drink. All are welcome!
