Experience a virtual visit to Theodore Roosevelt Island with Melanie Choukas-Bradley, an award-winning author of the new book, Finding Solace at Theodore Roosevelt Island. Melanie will bring the beauty and biological diversity of DC’s 88.5-acre Potomac island into your home as she shares island explorations through the seasons.

Learn about the trees, wildflowers and birds that inhabit the fascinating island in our midst. Contemplate the island’s history and the conservation legacy of the naturalist president—and ANS member—it memorializes. Among his many other accomplishments, Theodore Roosevelt was an eloquent nature writer and this presentation will introduce you to some of his most evocative writing.
