The creek is frozen.
The trees are sleeping.
The creatures are sleeping.
Everything is waiting.
Hello Natural Patriot!
Beautiful photo essay. I enjoyed the peaceful, contemplative photos. Looking forward to spring and its awakening.
Thanks for keeping us updated on all of the natural happenings, Emmett
I want your opinion: What are the top 10 most important ecological pieces of writing that every person (especially aspiring ecologists) should read? I’m not talking about classic “papers” but works about ecology/nature/environment. Writing that you have found inspiring and thought provoking? I’m thinking: Silent Spring, Walden, Sand County Almanac…top 10? What contemporary works are important (e.g. Guns, Germs and Steel? 1491?)
Good question, Mara. You could start with the “NP’s essential reading list”under the tab at the top of the home page. I really need to update this but it’s a start. For example, I would alos add “Natural Capitalism” by Hawken et al. It’s a bit dated but very thought-provoking. I would also add
“Deep Economy” by Bill McKibben. Happy reading!
It was right under my nose the whole time! Thank you. I want to develop a grad-student seminar on seminal readings in ecology (and read for fun, of course!). I’ll let you know what our final reading list turns out to be. Thanks!
Yet another good website for further reading is http://www.ourstolenfuture.org
It’ll take many weeks to digest if you’ve got the time, or at least a few months. It really reveals what is happening on a hidden level with regards several species extinction anomalies.
BTW, enjoy reading the blog.
