NATURAL HISTORY WEEK, STAR ISLAND, NH -- JUNE 16 - 23, 2018

 

WELCOME TO NATURAL HISTORY WEEK 2018!

Theme for the Week: Building Durable Communities

Building Durable Communities combines two concepts: Durable: continuing to exist, stable; Communities: groups of organisms—animals (including humans), microbes, plants—living together in the same environment. These concepts frame the fundamental challenge before humanity: Can we create and sustain durable communities in which humans can fulfill their highest ethical aspirations as articulated by humanity’s world religions?
Carl N. McDaniel

Our 2018 speaker is Carl McDaniel, an experimental scientist and environmental educator, who has spent a lifetime living the conference’s theme as a researcher, educator, and individual. His scientific articles, books, lectures and the building of his energy-positive home will form the springboard for his program “Trail Magic: Lessons for a Livable Planet.”Natural History Week at
