Presented in partnership with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and the Center for Humans and Nature, we invite you to join animist, wanderer, and writer Gavin Van Horn to discover how our paths are crisscrossed by the tracks and flyways of various species.

Through his unique approach to storytelling, Van Horn will weave myth with science, ecological loss with abundance, and reflect on the role wildlife can play in waking us to a shared sense of place and fate.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m., presentation starts at 6:30 p.m. A cash bar and refreshments will be available. Copies of Gavin’s latest book, The Way of Coyote, will also be available for purchase.
