Nature’s Narratives at the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College

The Hidden Life of Trees

Date & Time:                   Wednesday, September 13, 5:30 to 6:30 pm

Cost:                                 Free and open to the public

Location:                          Scott Horticultural Library

Special Notes:                  Advance registration is required.

Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers to discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives” is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum where readers come together to discuss a book once a month and share in the reading experience.

Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, The Hidden Life of Trees, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland.

The discussions are free and open to the public and will take place in the Scott Horticultural Library. Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion. One copy of each book is available for members to check out of the Scott Arboretum Horticultural Library. For more information, call 610-328-8025 or visit www.scottarboretum.org.
