Big Sur Land Trust Presents An Evening With Richard Louv Best-selling author speaks on our connection to wild animals and nature


Richard Louv

Carmel Valley, CA – Big Sur Land Trust will present an evening with best-selling author Richard Louv, at Hidden Valley Music Seminars in Carmel Valley (104 W. Carmel Valley Road) on Friday, March 6th. Doors open at 7:00PM, and the event runs from 7:30 to 9:00PM. A Q&A session and time for book signing is included. Tickets are available at

Known for coining the phrase “nature deficit disorder” in his book Last Child in the Woods, Richard takes a look at our relationship with wild and domesticated animals in his latest book Our Wild Calling: “To fully protect anything we must know it, love it, act in mindful reciprocity – giving back to animals as they give to us.”

Jeannette Tuitele-Lewis, president and CEO of Big Sur Land Trust says, “We couldn’t agree more. The 40,000+ acres we have conserved throughout Monterey County serve as important wildlife corridors and crucial habitats for endangered species. And, our youth outdoor camps programs make what Richard says is an ‘essential investment in our children’s health’ by connecting kids who have limited opportunities to get out in nature with the beauty and peace of open spaces.”

The event is presented in partnership with Pilgrim’s Way Community Bookstore and Ventana Wildlife Society. Sponsors include Balance Hydrologic, BFS Landscape Architects, Blink Optometry Carmel,  Denise Duffy & Associates; Monterey Peninsula Volunteer Services Thrift Shop, Monterey Private Wealth, Monterey Signs, Natividad Foundation, Rights and Opportunities Foundation, Spoke Consulting and Whitson Engineering.

Big Sur Land Trust (BSLT) is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire love of land across generations, conservation of our unique Monterey County landscapes, and access to outdoor experiences for all. Since 1978, our generous donors and partners have conserved over 40,000 acres throughout Monterey County.
