The HFN Book Club

The Halifax Field Naturalists Book Club formed in 2012.  The Book Club meetings normally take place on the second Wednesdays of November, March and May. New members are invited to join any time! One book is discussed at each meeting and notice of each choice is sent out in advance. At the May meeting, we start to discuss choices for the following fall.

We have a regularly updated list of HFN Book Club suggestions, which we use as a resource for upcoming reads.

The next meeting will be on Thursday, Nov 30. We will be discussing The Hidden Life of Trees: What they Feel, How they Communicate, written by German forester Peter Wohlleben. In his book, Wohlleben explores the interaction between trees via the underground network of mycorrhizal fungi. He draws conclusions regarding the forestry practices and the health of forests.
