Emma Marris, Writer
Wednesday, January 7, 2015
7:00 p.m.

Author of Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World, Emma Marris will explain how there is virtually no untouched wilderness on Earth, and then go on to explore how this realization, which initially seems sad, actually free us up to use new and exciting approaches to saving species, ecosystems and even wildness. Her lecture will weave in examples of how these ideas play out in the private garden and how even a window box can help save species. Book signing to follow lecture.

Join us for on select evenings from December to May for a formative lecture series on art, conservation and travel from Fairchild experts and renowned authors. All lectures are held in the Lakeside Marquee. Light refreshments will be served. View the complete list of lectures here.
