Can Sveit Save Us?
Strengthening our Connections to our Place

Susan Cerulean

Susan Cerulean

Sveit, an Icelandic concept, refers to that which connects us to earth, to history, to nature, to humanity. We have worked hard to deepen a sense of place in our Red Hills and Gulf Coastal Plain bioregions. But as climate change bears down, we must commit our-selves to grow ever more intimate with our place and the wild things that share it. This love will sustain and empower us while we work on behalf of our planet.

Susan Cerulean is a writer, advocate and lover of wild birds. Her latest work, Coming to Pass: Florida’s Coastal Islands in a Gulf of Change, will be published in early 2015 by University of Georgia Press. Previous books she’s written or edited include Tracking Desire: A Journey After Swallow-tailed Kites; Between Two Rivers: Stories from the Red Hills to the Gulf, The Book of the Everglades; and The Wild Heart of Florida


Dinner will be provided by Chapter Chef Tim Smith. This year’s menu features an Alfredo Pasta Bar with chicken, shrimp and a vegetarian option along with salad and sides. Tickets are $10 per person. They may be purchased in advance at Native Nurseries or Wild Birds Unlimited. Please come and bring a friend. Non-members are welcome too!

If you wish to buy your ticket at the dinner, please call Tim at (850) 933-5979 by May 13 to make your reservation.
