Keynote Speaker: Emily Stone “Finding the Stories in Nature”

Do you also love finding adventure and intrigue in strange places? Join naturalist and author Emily Stone to be transported across the moat into a magical world where nature is better than fiction. Pioneers help each other eke out a living in the miniature, stained-glass world of a pitcher plant leaf. Tiny gardeners find donuts on the forest floor. By using science to tell stories, Emily wields a magic that makes the whole world feel more alive. Emily M. Stone is a naturalist by birth, training, profession and passion. As the Naturalist/Education Director at the Cable Natural History Museum in Cable, Wisconsin, Emily writes a weekly “Natural Connections” column published in more than a dozen local and regional newspapers. She has earned multiple Excellence in Craft awards from the Outdoor Writers Association of America. Emily’s two Natural Connections books will be available for sale and signing after the talk.
