Nature Night: The Wonder of Urban Nature


With wonder and a sense of humor, Nature Obscura author Kelly Brenner aims to help us rediscover our connection to the natural world that is just outside our front door. Slime molds, tardigrades, mosses, dragonflies, and more await us–we just need to know where to look. In this presentation and conversation, Kelly will introduce us to some of these overlooked organisms through photos, stories and excerpts from Nature Obscura and provide a sneak peek into her next book, The Naturalist at Home.
