“It strikes me that Thoreau’s writing is like his own landscape–a vast expanse of weeds, brush, thickets, and just occasionally a singing bird with a soft note hidden in some unexceptionable underbrush. Thoreau, in other words, is as chaotic as the real world of nature and just as full of trivia, with here and there some remarkable observational nugget.”
–From “The Lost Notebooks” of Loren Eiseley, in “Collected Essays on Evolution, Nature and the Cosmos, vol. 1,” Library of America.
Note: all government meetings noticed below are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated. Many can be heard or seen live through each agency’s website.
