Jordan Fisher-Smith, author of “Engineering Eden,” will discusses his critically acclaimed book on Dec. 16 at the Donner Memorial State Park Visitor Center in Truckee.
Doors open at 5pm and the program begins at 5:30pm. “Engineering Eden” will be available for sale and signing after the program. There is a $5 suggested donation to attend and parking is free.
In the book Fisher-Smith questions if humans can actually manage nature. In 1975 the Department of Interior was sued for mismanagement after a young man was killed and eaten by a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park. Fisher-Smith follows the trial arguments of two of the greatest 20th century wildlife biologists as they struggle with the answer.
