Join a Nature-Themed Book Club

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to read more? Are you passionate about nature? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, consider joining Trailside Museum of Natural History and Chicago Audubon Society’s new nature-themed book club.


An inaugural gathering will be hosted at the Nature Center on Thursday, February 22 at 7 p.m. to discuss the book “Coyote America” by Dan Flores, which tells the story of how coyotes have survived and thrived across North America.


The book club is free to join, and open to adults and teens. Those who are interested but have not read the book are encouraged to attend the session.


“There are so many ways for people to connect with nature, be it through music, art, film or books. The book club is just another new method for us to reach a broader audience, and highlight the incredible wilderness located in Cook County,” explains Irene Flebbe, assistant director of Trailside Museum. “Additionally, the Nature Center hopes to expand program offerings for adult and teenage visitors; there truly is something for everyone here.”
