Every year for Earth Day, we check in with writer and photographer Stephen Trimble, author of “Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in America,” and many other books. This time, Stephen Trimble suggested we also reach out to his friend, ecologist, ethnobotanist and writer, Gary Paul Nabhan.
Gary Nabhan was an intern in Washington, D.C. at the creation of the original earth day in 1970 and he’s been reflecting on Earth Day – Fifty Years as we approach that milestone this year. Stephen Trimble and Gary Nabhan co-wrote “The Geography of Childhood: Why Children Need Wild Places.”
At the end of the hour we’ll hear from Douglas Tallamy, author of “Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens” and “Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard.”
