You may have noticed that I have a new page listed on my menu bar, Post-Apocalyptic Foraging, that doesn’t seem to quite fit with the rest of the content of Part-Time Local and the focus on Hilton Head Island. Well, as you all know, I really enjoy sharing my love of nature on the island, but I also do this thing of mine in Ohio too, just with Ohio nature (alas, no dolphins in Ohio). So where is this going?
My home up north, Hamilton, Ohio, is participating for a second year in One Book, One City, a community reading initiative, and as part of this program many organizations throughout the city participate in activities related to, or inspired by, the reading selection. This year’s selection is Station Eleven ,a post-apocalyptic novel by Emily St. John Mandel, and I have partnered with Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum to lead a nature walk inspired by the book.
I will be leading this walk and talk on four dates in October 2018 (the 6th, 7th, 13th, and 14th) and wanted a place to be able to share more information with the participants, and anyone else who might be interested, so, the new page. Please check it out, and if you are close to me in SW Ohio, you can check out the event link here.
