August 11th Ecotone

Ecotone, A Writing for Peace Workshop

Ecotone – a wild look at sharing territory with human animals

August 11th, 2-4pm, Longmont Public Library

Workshop Description:
e·co·tone n. A transitional zone between two communities containing the characteristic species of each.
As cities and suburbs expand, the natural areas that support wildlife are shrinking. We’ve grown used to sharing our neighborhoods with foxes, rabbits, squirrels, and raccoons, but what does it mean to compete with humans for resources? Have you ever wondered what our manicured world looks like through the eyes of a mountain lion, bear, or coyote?

We’ll read excerpts from John Muir and Jack London, and write about our favorite “wild” spaces. We’ll explore the subtleties of voice and point-of-view from the perspective of both human and wild animals in a life or death competition for land and resources. Facilitators are published authors and members of Writing for Peace.

Where: Longmont Public Library, 409 4th Avenue, Longmont, CO 80501
When: Saturday, August 11th, 2-4pm
