Next up in Eco-Alianza’s Visiting Scientist series is best-selling author Wallace J. Nichols, speaking about “Blue Mind” on Saturday, July 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at our CenCoMA headquarters on Calle Hidalgo. Dr. Nichols is a marine biologist, activist, community organizer, and author who works to inspire a deeper connection with nature.
Blue Mind combines cutting-edge research with compelling personal stories about the remarkable benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Dr. Nichols will discuss how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success. Blue Mind not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water, it provides a practical blueprint for a better life.
Dr. Nichols has been called “Keeper of the Sea” by GQ Magazine and “a visionary” by Outside Magazine. Formerly a Senior Scientist at Ocean Conservancy, Dr. Nichols has authored more than 200 scientific papers, and publications. He has also lectured in more than 30 countries and will present at Eco-Alianza in Spanish. J. is bilingual, so the presentation will be followed by questions and answers in both Spanish and English.
The presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, visit wallacejnichols.org .
