Saturday, April 28, 2018, 10:00-12:00PM. Hey newt lovers, come out to Tugman Park for the third annual Wow Newts! Nature Quest, sponsored by Nearby Nature! We'll talk about newts, enjoy newts, and count all of the newts in Tugman Creek.

Tuesday, June 19, 7:00-8:30PM. I'll be giving a program entitled Lizard Tales for the Eugene chapter of the Obsidians at the Obsidians Lodge (located here). Find out about a pair of sagebrush lizard mummies that are over 12,000 years old, and my efforts to sequence their DNA. Based on my Spring 2017 Oregon Quarterly piece Lizard Tales.



Thomas Wolfe said “you can’t go home again.” I did it anyway. Come walk with me and I’ll show you why in my book Blackberries in July: A Forager's Field Guide to Inner Peace.
