William Wordsworth and Ralph Waldo Emerson are two of the most famous authors of the nineteenth century writing about nature and what it meant for people of the nineteenth century. Heidi Snow will speak on Wordsworth and his love of the Lake District in the United Kingdom, and will speak about some present challenges. David Pfeifer will speak on Emerson and his love of Walden Woods in Concord, Massachusetts. Walden Woods is also facing challenges. Both speakers will present short passages from the authors and will show images that illustrate their thought on and love for nature.
