January’s Nature Book Club selection: The Way Through the Woods

December 18, 2020

Ready for a satisfying and surprising dive into the world of mushrooms and the Norwegian mushroom community? Join us January 9 for our next Nature Book Club meeting to discuss Long Litt Woon’s The Way Through the Woods: on Mushrooms and Mourning.

Immediately popular and with now more than 15 international editions, this is an entertaining and engaging (and sometimes funny) combination of memoir + nature writing. It is described as “inspiring” and “healing” and may be just what we need during these dark months.

Registration is here.

Our Nature Book Club is a collaboration between Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership and Aurora Parks Recreation and Open Space naturalist team. We meet monthly via zoom and when we can, in person on the trail. This is a FREE program, though registration is required each month. (And here’s the answer to the question no one likes to ask–YES, you are still VERY welcome to attend book club even if you didn’t finish the book!)

“Like mushrooms themselves, The Way Through the Woods is surprising, comforting, and completely engrossing. Woon takes us foraging not just through the fascinating world of fungi but also through her personal grief. Like Sound of a Wild Snail Eating and H is for Hawk, her gorgeous, intimate encounter with unfamiliar species teaches us that observing nature carefully is both inspiring and healing.”—Juli Berwald, author of Spineless: The Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone

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.
