NPR’s Zickefoose to lead nature workshop

On July 9, author and NPR commentator Julie Zickefoose will lead a workshop at the Marianist Environmental Education Center at Mount St. John in Beavercreek. During the course of the workshop, Zickefoose will share her insights on interpreting nature through writing, drawing and storytelling. The workshop, part of Tecumseh Land Trust’s 20th anniversary celebration, “Stories of People and the Land,” will be held Friday, July 9, 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m.

In her NPR commentary, Zickefoose observes life with her family on their Whipple, Ohio farm and in the larger natural world.  Her book, Letters from Eden: A Year at Home in the Woods evokes the sounds, smells, tastes, and beauty of southeastern Ohio through accessible tales of daily encounters with nature and the seasons.  Zickefoose’s illustrations range from simple pencil journal sketches to sumptuous water colors.

Snacks, drinks and a box lunch will be included in the workshop’s $60 registration fee. A journal will be provided for each participant. Enrollment is limited, and pre-registration is required.
