Subirdia Book Signing
Author John Marzluff suggest ten simple and practical steps we can take—for the birds, and for our own green futures.
Welcome to Subirdia gives us something to celebrate. The herons in our urban streams, the barred owls whose shrieks wake us in our city neighborhoods, the woodpeckers that nest in our wooded parks, and the chickadees that entertain us at our birdfeeders can motivate us to seek a future filled with birds. The ways we manage our property, plan our towns, and think about the nonhuman residents of our ecosystems can make a difference for our children and grandchildren.
“With enthusiasm, wit, and compelling scholarship, John Marzluff challenges us to reconsider a forgotten landscape. Welcome to Suburdia is more than entertaining—it will change the way you think about cities, nature, and your own backyard.”—Thor Hanson, author of Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle
