Explore all four seasons in the north woods with Emily Stone ’04, naturalist and education director at the Cable Natural History Museum in Cable, Wisconsin in this multi-media presentation Friday, September 23 at 4:30 p.m. at the Northland College Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute.
Through Stone’s research and unique perspective, you will discover something new on every slide and around every bend in the trail. Stone is a naturalist by birth, training, profession, and passion. Her childhood spent as a “mud and water daughter” led to a degree in outdoor education from Northland College and a field naturalist masters from the University of Vermont.
Stone writes a weekly column published in more than a dozen local and regional newspapers. These columns have collected into a new book, “Natural Connections: Exploring Northwoods Nature through Science and Your Senses.” Three of her columns recently earned an Excellence in Craft award from the Outdoor Writers Association of America.
Stone will be available for signing books before and after the talk. This event is part of the weekend-long Fall Festival at Northland College.
