Massachusetts historian and natural historian JOHN GALLUZZO decided that for the year 2011 he would take a 30 minute hike in a green space in every town and city in the state. It was a mammoth task to undertake and plan. John had to deal with poor weather, swarms of insects and family crises, but in the end he accomplished his goal. Tune in tonight and listen to John talk about what the real goal of this amazing project was; what some of his favorite places in the state were and what he learned along the way. His book, which is also a nice guide to walking and hiking spots across the state is HALF AND HOUR A DAY ACROSS MASSACHUSETTS.
Inquiry welcomes back artist, writer and natural historian JULIE ZICKEFOOSE to talk about her new book THE BLUEBIRD EFFECT: UNCOMMON BONDS WITH COMMON BIRDS. This sumptuous and fascinating book details her decades long experiences in rehabilitating young birds and is one of the best natural history books published this year. Rehabilitating nestlings is hard, frustrating, time consuming work that is also very rewarding because you get to know the birds intimately in a way no birder or even most ornithologists do. Tune in and find out about Julie’s life as an artist, and what it takes to raise unusual species like hummingbirds and swifts.
