Ned Tillman, a Columbia resident and a nationally recognized environmentalist, has written 3 books on how the environment is being impacted by climate change. Ned will come and discuss with us his vision of the future as the climate changes here in Howard County and across the state. We strongly suggest you pick up and read one or more of his books before this meeting. His first two are non-fiction and are engaging first person accounts of the impacts of man on the health of this region both in the past and up to the present.
The titles of his books are: “The Big Melt,” “The Chesapeake Watershed: A Sense of Place and a Call to Action,” and “Saving the Places We Love: Paths to Environmental Stewardship.” These books are available at the library or online at Amazon at this address https://www.amazon.com/Ned-Tillman/e/B0028OC7Y8
Ned informs, entertains, and inspires readers with stories of the rich history of this area, growing up around the Bay, and ideas on how you can help restore the bay to the national treasure it once was.
