The San Juan Island Library shares the dates and topics for the upcoming Nature’s Mysteries series.
The San Juan Island Library District and San Juan Island National Historical Park are pleased to announce the return of their popular collaborative Nature’s Mysteries series. These series of interactive programs have been a well-attended educational initiative since 2020. In the past year, they have proven so popular that a second series, Hidden Histories, has been added that deals with major international historical moments and how they impacted the San Juan Islands. Park staff have delivered over 15 programs, dealing with topics as diverse as The Secret Life of Trees and Echoes of the Opium War, allowing interested patrons to gain specialized knowledge about topics related to park history, culture, ecosystems, and wildlife.
The first Nature’s Mysteries program of 2022, Exploring Dirt, Soil, and What Makes it so Important, takes place on Wednesday, June 15 at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Tune in to hear Park Ranger Jeff Hodge dish some dirt. For those interested in our local soils, their statuses, and why understanding dirt holds the master key to life on planet earth, please email Sarah at email@example.com to register for the event.
The Nature’s Mysteries series will run for the next four months on a monthly basis with recordings available online on the library website after it airs. The full line up of the series includes:
- June 15 — Exploring Dirt, Soil, and What Makes It So Important
- July 13 — Caring for Your National Park: How the Park Service Manages Natural Resources
- August 10 — Anatomy of a Prairie: What Is a Prairie, How Do They Work, and Why Do They Matter?
