*POSTPONED* – Bookish Biomes: Assembling Nature’s Histories at the Clark Library

May 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret to inform you that this event has been postponed. A new date will be listed here and shared with all registrants.

The event is free to attend and will be held in-person at the Clark Library. Registration will close on Wednesday, May 15 at 5:00 p.m. Walk-in registrants are welcome as space permits.

The Clark Library preserves and provides access to over 130,000 books, manuscripts, and artworks dating from the 15th century to the present. But there is a library of living things on the five acres of green space outside the library’s building, too. This event will bring together both our indoor and outdoor collections, as we explore nature’s histories – and its present!

Participants will learn about bees and beekeeping from the Bruin Beekeepers, go on bird walks with experienced guides from Los Angeles Birders, learn about how people in the past studied and collected the natural world through our library collections, and talk to representatives from other nature- and garden-minded local groups. Attendees will also be able to make their own field notebooks, participate in a Clark Library bioblitz to help expand our knowledge of the library’s outdoor collections, trade plant cuttings and seeds with other attendees, plant seeds to take home from our heirloom seed library – and more!
