Gibson’s Bookstore is pleased to virtually welcome author Tom Wessels as he presents New England’s Roadside Ecology: Explore 30 of the Region’s Unique Natural Areas, which guides you through hikes to 30 spectacular natural sites, all within an easy walk from the road. The sites include the forests, wetlands, alpines, dunes, and geologic ecosystems that make up New England. Tom will be joined in conversation by David Govatski, a longtime US Forest Service employee and a noted North Country naturalist.

Author Tom Wessels is the perfect guide. Each entry starts with the brief description of the hike’s level of difficulty—all are gentle to moderate and cover no more than two miles. Entries also include turn-by-turn directions and clear descriptions of the flora, fauna, and fungi you are likely to encounter along the way. New England’s Roadside Ecology is a must-have guide for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, and tourists in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
