Volume 19: Net Works

To order a copy of this volume, mail a hard copy of this order form (pdf) and a check to the address on the form. 

As environmental practitioners we cast nets to sample nature, to gather knowledge, to provoke action. Ornithologists use mist nets to capture birds for banding, advocates and organizers use social networks to foment governmental and public action, and vast amounts of data are gathered from different disciplines to construct climate change models. What do we hope will be the end result of our collective net work, as we seek both the tangible and the ineffable? Volume 19 of Whole Terrain offers creative interpretations of the theme Net Works that encompass the full range and scope of environmental practice.
