MICHAEL DOVER: EARTH MATTERS

Program:

Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 11:30am

This week on Inquiry we welcome MICHAEL DOVER, retired environmental scientist member of the Hitchcock Center board and co-editor of the new compendium of essays titled EARTH MATTERS: ESSAYS ON THE NATURE OF THE PIONEER VALLEY. The essays in this wonderful collection were first printed as a bi-weekly newspaper column and written by a variety of people associated with the Hitchcock Center, one of the leading New England centers for environmental education of children and adults. The subjects range from observations of birds, mammals, salamanders and invertebrates to pieces on the local farms, how to eat locally and even where to find a place to take a nap outdoors in the Valley. Together, these essays make up one of the most interesting and entertaining books on our local environment.  Tonight we talk about the Big Night (for salamanders), how to talk to your children about global climate change and why it’s important to get out of your car and simply walk.
