The Nature Museum Hosts Author Judith D. Schwartz: Climate Solutions in Plain Sight: The Role of Water

posted Wednesday, March 7, 2018

What is the "global water cycle," and how does it relate to climate change? Join The Nature Museum and Judith D. Schwartz, author of "Cows Save the Planet" and "Water in Plain Sight: Hope for a Thirsty World," will present a lively program on the global water cycle and climate change on Thursday, March 15, at 7 PM at the Newsbank Conference Center in Chester, VT. This presentation includes examples from around the world of water innovators whose understanding of the water cycle has helped address environmental challenges.

By allying with the water cycle, we can revive lush, productive landscapes. Like the river in rural Zimbabwe that, thanks to restorative grazing, now flows miles further than in living memory. Or the food forest of oranges, pomegranates, and native fruit-bearing plants in Tucson, grown through harvesting urban wastewater. Or the mini-oasis in West Texas nourished by dew. Animated by stories from around the globe, Judith's presentation is an inspiring reminder that fixing the future of our drying planet involves understanding what makes natural systems thrive. This event will include a presentation by the author, a group discussion, light refreshments, and book signings at the end of the evening.

This event, hosted at the NewsBank Conference Center at 352 Main Street in Chester, is recommended for adults and older children. Tickets are a $10 suggested donation. Refreshments from the Grafton Village Bakery will be served. To buy your ticket or for more information, please go to: or call (802) 843-2111.
