Club meeting at the Farm & Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Road, Lancaster, PA.  Reminder:  This is the second Thursday of the month. The 2,000 mile-long Appalachian Mountain system is one of the oldest and most remarkable ranges in the world, stretching from the wildflower-spangled hills of central Alabama to the ice-choked edge of Newfoundland where caribou and even polar bears roam. Join naturalist and author Scott Weidensaul in an exploration of these ancient hills, based on the newly revised and expanded 20th anniversary edition of his award-winning book "Mountains of the Heart: A Natural History of the Appalachians." Weidensaul will examine the conservation challenges and successes that recent decades have brought to these seemingly timeless hills, and what the future may hold for them.


Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist "Living on the Wind," about bird migration, "Return to Wild America," and "The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery and Endurance in Early America." His newest book is "The Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean," as well as a fully revised edition of his classic, "Mountains of the Heart."  Weidensaul is a contributing editor for Audubon, a columnist for Bird Watcher's Digest and writes for a variety of other publications; he lives in Schuylkill County, where he studies the migration of owls and hummingbirds
