DRBIPA Book Club

Want to learn more about nature and discover some great authors? Fiction and non-fiction alike, all about nature, ecology, and conservation. Join us for our new quarterly DRBIPA Book Club! There are so many good reasons to join book clubs — make new friends, learn different perspectives, take a break from busy life, and much more... 

 

Register by emailing us at outreach@drbipa.org, let us know you want to join the book club. 

 

We'll be reading a book each quarter and getting together in Fort Langley (and in the parks during warmer weather!) near the end of each quarter to discuss what we've read. Register by the first day of each quarter and be entered into a draw to win a copy of the selected book.
