Join us for a discussion of books related to nature, conservation, and the environment on the Schlitz Audubon Nature Book Club Facebook Group. The group is open to join and we will post questions beginning on Wednesday, August 18. Our selection for summer is The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan.
The Great Lakes—Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario, and Superior—hold 20 percent of the world’s supply of surface fresh water and provide sustenance, work, and recreation for tens of millions of Americans. But they are under threat as never before, and their problems are spreading across the continent. The Death and Life of the Great Lakes is prize-winning reporter Dan Egan’s compulsively readable portrait of an ecological catastrophe happening right before our eyes, blending the epic story of the lakes with an examination of the perils they face and the ways we can restore and preserve them for generations to come.
Copies of The Death and Life of the Great Lakes are available for purchase in our Nature Store.
Free to all. Registration is not required, please see our Schlitz Audubon Nature Book Club Facebook Group.
