Our Philosophy


Join our Book Club!

'Book Club for Wildlife' meets monthly on the second Wednesday at 6PM at the Baldwin Wildlife Center (9777 M Street, Omaha). 

Every month, readers who enjoy learning about wildlife (or wildlife enthusiasts wanting to read more!) get together to have stimulating discussions over books that make us think critically about animals and humans and how we can better learn to co-exist. We also dive into the intricate ecology of species, how we can support them, and how their histories intertwine with our communities. And there's snacks!

Attendance to every meeting is not mandatory, we encourage participants to drop in when they are available.
