Kevin Cook: The Outcome

Old Town Library
Large Meeting Room Combo

Join us at Old Town Library for the twelfth and final installment of Kevin Cook’s year-long series, “A Naturalist’s Desiderata: Part 2,” where he continues with a discussion on how the journey of a naturalist represents manifestation of time and energy to explore places and seasons, to discover diversity and connectedness. 

 

The Outcome: Being a naturalist is about living in reasoned harmony with Life rather than living in perpetual conflict with it.  Achieving that harmony occurs through establishing, pursuing, and maintaining meaningful goals that serve as personal landmarks by which to navigate the quests of a lifetime journey.
