Join us for a book signing with local author Ellen Stroud. Pennsylvania, like much of the northeastern U.S., has more trees and forest today than a century ago. Stroud’s new book, Nature Next Door, argues that the growth of cities actually helped restore our forests. Learn how Philadelphians’ quest for clean drinking water and a healthy city life helped rebuild Penn’s Woods. It’s a story of hope, in which—with proper foresight and management—cities and wild places can flourish together.
