Hidden Half of Nature: Microbial Roots of Life and Health

Join David Montgomery and Anne Bikle as they explore the connections between soil and human health.

David Montgomery earned his Ph.D. in geomorphology and teaches at the University of Washington where he studies the evolution of topography and how geological processes shape landscapes and influence ecological systems. Montgomery writes about the relationship of people to their environment and is the author of Growing A Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life. In 2008 he was named a MacArthur Fellow. 

Anne Biklé is an author, biologist, and gardener. She uses her broad background and endless fascination with the natural world to investigate and write about connections between health issues, plants and the environment. Her interests have also led her into public health, salmon restoration, and environmental planning.

This Art As A Voice event accompanies the Food For Thought exhibition at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, on Saturday November 2nd, from 1:00 to 3:30pm at the Grange Hall.

Admission: $18 regular, $15 SJIMA and Grange members, and $12 students. Register online at www.sjima.org under Learn, or at 360-370-5050.

Tickets will be sold the door as seats are available.
