For 30 years, award-winning Colorado nature writer Mary Taylor Young has kept a nature journal of sightings around her cabin in southern Colorado.  

In her 22nd book, Bluebird Seasons: Witnessing Climate Change In My Piece of the Wild, Young shares a story of change, as familiar birds disappear and new ones arrive; drought and wildfire increase; bears and elk change their seasonal rhythms. It’s a story echoed in everyone’s backyard and wild place, she says, but it’s not time to despair; it’s time to act. This Earth Day, come hear Young tell the story of Bluebird Seasons and discover how you can have a voice and join the climate fight by sharing your own climate change story.
