Join us in the Readings Gallery for another great event in our Nature of Writing series, a partnership between Village Books and the North Cascades Institute.
Fact-filled and richly illustrated, Grizzly Bears explores the biology and ecological importance of grizzlies and considers what it takes to share the land with them. Meet the bears and learn from Indigenous knowledge keepers, scientists, conservationists and young people who are working to ensure grizzly bears will be with us forever.
“This phenomenal book is a must for anyone with even the slightest interest in bears. Even someone who isn't particularly interested in learning more about grizzlies likely won’t be able to resist being drawn in. Highly Recommended.” – School Library Connection
