Environmental Missouri: Issues and Sustainability. Interview with Don Corrigan

CLIMATE REALITY - ST. LOUIS MEETUP will sponsor a special event presentation and book signing for Don Corrigan’s new book: “Environmental Missouri: Issues and Sustainability - What You Need to Know.”

The program will take up issues that make sense for a Meet-Up partnership with other St. Louis players on the environmental scene. Representatives of some of those potential partners will be invited.

The event is at 7 p.m., Sunday, June 22, in the Crown Room of Schlafly’s in Maplewood

About “Environmental Missouri”: 

Environmental Missouri is the first comprehensive guide to local and state environmental issues involving the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land we inhabit in the Show-Me State. It examines such issues as urban sprawl, polluted streams, radioactive waste, lead contamination, airborne mercury, ozone and smog, noise and light pollution. The book raises questions about wildlife issues: What's with the Asian Carp taking over our rivers? Why are the bees disappearing? When will the Ozark Hellbender revive and thrive?
