Pick up your late winter spirits with a virtual visit to Theodore Roosevelt Island, a DC woodland memorial to our foremost conservation president, who preserved 230 million acres of land during his presidency. Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of seven critically acclaimed nature books, including the just-released Finding Solace at Theodore Roosevelt Island, will take you through each of the seasons on the island with spectacular photographs of its trees, wildflowers, birds and animals and an introduction to the island’s trail network. She will also sketch the fascinating history of our very own Potomac island, a gem hiding in plain sight between the Kennedy Center and the Rosslyn skyline. Melanie will introduce you to a Theodore Roosevelt you may not know—a lifelong naturalist and eloquent nature writer. Melanie is herself a naturalist and a certified forest bathing guide who will inspire you to explore Theodore Roosevelt Island and the many other natural beauty spots that we’re so blessed with in the Washington region. Learn about the medical research from around the world that demonstrates the mental and physical health benefits of spending time in nature. The class will allow plenty of time for sharing our local nature adventures with one another.
