Author, Naturalist and Guide, John Bates, will be the next guest of the Boulder Junction Public Library’s Neighbor to Neighbor program series on Thursday, July 24, 2014, 7 pm, at the Boulder Junction Community Center.

Can the Northwoods Stay “The North” in a Globally Warming Climate? Wisconsin’s Northwoods is home to a rather unique array of plants and animals, many of which are at the southernmost edge of their range. A warming climate poses some truly significant risks for a myriad of species that are associated with our area. We’ll take a measured, calm look at what’s at stake, using the best scientific information we can. Note - this is not a debate on whether our climate is warming, but rather a detailed look at what changes we can expect to take place.

John Bates is the author of seven books on the Northwoods and Upper Midwest, and a contributor to four others. John was recently featured on Wisconsin Public Television in a segment of In Wisconsin. He has worked as a state forest naturalist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and owns Trails North, a naturalist guide service. He also conducts outdoor classes for Nicolet College, the University of Wisconsin Extension, and the North Lakeland Discovery Center. For twenty years he has written a biweekly column, "A Northwoods Almanac" for the Lakeland Times in Minocqua, Wisconsin. John won the 2006 Ellis/Henderson Outdoor Writing Award from the Council for Wisconsin Writers for his book Graced by the Seasons: Spring and Summer in the Northwoods. John and his wife Mary live on the Manitowish River in Iron County.

This presentation is part of the Friends of the Boulder Junction Public Library’s free monthly NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR program series. All members of the public are welcome to attend and refreshments will be served. For more information or to request this year’s program schedule, please call the library at 715-385-2050.
