Winter Reads for the Mindful and Nature Curious

We have crossed the equinox and are now officially sitting the Winter season. What is more cozy than sitting by a flame, in your warm home, with a beautiful book in your hands? Many ask me for resources on how to learn more about nature and mindfulness. Below I have listed some of my favorite books for you to explore. I am currently reading "Finding the Mother Tree" by Suzanne Simard and hope to add it to this list. I would love to hear if you have any favorite reads to add. Happy Wintering!
