The Nature Library: how stories connect people with nature, with Christina Riley

In this episode NatureScot staff Fiona Leith and Claire Gordon chat to Christina Riley the founder of the Nature Library, a pop-up nature library which travels to festivals and events around Scotland.

Christina explains how the book collection has evolved, and why taking stories to local communities is helping more people appreciate and make space for nature, particularly during Scotland’s Year of Storytelling 2022.

Christina also explains how now, more than ever, as the climate and nature crises become more apparent, nature writing is touching all of our lives and why we all need to take immediate action and make a difference.
