The talk is at Lake Michigan College, 125 Veterans Blvd., South Haven.  Admission is $10 per person, students are free.

What are we losing when we separate ourselves from nature? How are we depriving ourselves by enabling this “extinction of experience”?

Studies have shown many American adults spend more time in their cars than outdoors, and our children spend 90% of their days indoors. Computers, TV, cell phones, and an ever-growing array of technological distractions are leading us to “disconnect” with nature.

Erik Mollenhauer’s thought-provoking presentation will challenge us to explore what happens to our humanity when we separate ourselves from nature.

A nationally recognized science educator, he will explain the core elements imprinted in our genetic and emotional memory that shed light on our place in the world. Passionate about the environment, Erik will show us why we need to reconnect with the wonders of nature to be fully functioning human beings.
