CHATHAM — The Columbia and Dutchess Land Conservancies have joined forces to promote virtual connection and reading good books. The final book for spring is Late Migrations: A Natural History of Love and Loss by Margaret Renkl.

Where the Wild Books Are meets 5:30-7 p.m. April 13 via Zoom and continues between meetings on the Mobilize web platform. After the April meeting, Book Club will be on hiatus until October 2021.

“This book is such a beautiful way to conclude the 2020-2021 book club season,” says Heidi Bock, Conservation Education Manager. “Late Migrations weaves together so many of the themes we discussed this year: paying attention to the world around us, personal connection to the land, and the power of stories.”

“Part memoir, part keenly observed natural history, and part reflection on the cycles of nature and human life, this difficult-to-categorize book neatly brings together many of the topics we have delved into,” said Julie Hart, the DLC’s Senior Manager of Stewardship & Education.

Visit for information about how to join! Please feel free to attend even if you haven’t read the entire book, and supply yourself with snacks and refreshments. Attendees should also feel comfortable dropping in and out of the meeting as they’re able to.
