The Outside Institute Field Guide Launch Party at 36 White

Join us in store on July 12th for an exciting release of the Outside Institute’s Field guide to the Hudson and Delaware Valleys. A point of entry for amateur naturalists, explorers, and adventurers, this field guide is an accessible introduction to more than fifty of the most prevalent flora, fauna, and fungi in the region. It includes detailed illustrations, clear descriptions for identification and usage, and even recipes.

Author and founder of The Outside Institute, Laura Silverman, and co-author and Naturalist-at-large Gilian Rappaport, will be on site to answer questions and discuss the book, and will be serving a unique herbal rye based cocktail, along with wild mushroom empanadas and buckwheat crackers with sweetfern-infused chicken liver mousse.
