December’s selection for our Nature Book Club is a classic: Pulitzer Prize winner, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard.

“The book is a form of meditation, written with headlong urgency, about seeing. A reader’s heart must go out to a young writer with a sense of wonder so fearless and unbridled…There is an ambition about her book that I like…It is the ambition to feel.”
Eudora Welty,  New York Times Book Review

The “Bookworms: A Book Club for Nature Lovers” is a joint program of our Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership organization and the naturalist staff (Kristin is our key partner!) with Aurora Parks, Recreation and Open Space; and we’d love to have you join us!

Participation in the club is FREE, but registration is required and spots (especially for the in-person club) are limited because of COVID/public health requirements and they go quickly! Fortunately, we’re able to accommodate more members on the virtual club meeting.

December’s meetings are:
This is now a virtual club meeting due to public health directives, though the date and time remain the same, and this club meeting will be on Zoom. In-person club meeting (with a guided walk/talk at Star K Ranch in Aurora on the Greenway); Saturday, December 12, 3 – 4:30 pm
Virtual club meeting (via Zoom); Wednesday, December 16, 6 – 7:30 pm

To Register:

We’ve created a reading guide with suggested questions and discussion ideas for December’s meetings, which you can download it here:

About the Greenway

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is a jewel in the necklace of trails that has made Denver a national model for linked trail systems.

This 14-mile public greenway connects the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. Along the way, it passes through northeast Denver and the new Stapleton community.

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day from dawn until dusk. Runners, walkers, nature viewers, horseback riders, and leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail. We invite you to become acquainted with our wilderness in the city.
