  1. My daughter (11) and I, just discovered and finished your book, The End of the Wild. Powerful! Thank you for sharing your gifts!

    We also live in MN. Lake Elmo to be exact. We just spent three years preparing for, and planting a native prairie- about 1/3 of an acre. It was so much work, but we finally got to let it grow this past summer. We are trying to keep learning about nature, our world, and how we can support it. It was so interesting to read about Fern's journey and to think about how much more we have to learn.
