EEANM Book Club Adventure, a trip to Cottonwood Gulch Base Camp

Join us on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from noon – 3 p.m. at the Cottonwood Gulch Base Camp in Thoreau, New Mexico to discuss Peter Wohlleben’s The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate—Discoveries from a Secret World.

This is sure to be an exciting day exploring Cottonwood Gulch Base Camp, a 540-acre nature preserve approximately two hours from Albuquerque in the foothills of the Zuni Mountains.

Over 90 years, the Cottonwood Gulch Expeditions “sponsors educational wilderness expeditions and outdoor programs in the American Southwest that promote personal growth, scientific, historic, and cultural discovery as well as a knowledgeable environmental ethic among all those who participate.”

This will be a unique EEANM Book Club experience and we hope you can join in on the fun!

If you are interested in carpooling from Albuquerque, please meet at the Annex Building across the street from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (1000 18th Street NW, Albuquerque, NM) by 10 a.m. on April 29. Those interested can plan to carpool from this location, or feel free to meet up with the group at noon at the Cottonwood Gulch Base Camp (658 State Hwy 612, Thoreau, NM 87323).
