Description:
You don't have to travel around the world or spend a ton of money
to enjoy the wonders of nature. Look Up! is a series of well-researched nature essays that will inspire readers to experience the outdoors in an affordable, accessible, and joyful way. The essays encourage backyard and local bird watching, native plant landscaping and restoration, practical energy conservation, and land conservation. They also explore how we can derive psychological benefits from these activities show nature can help us live happier, more fulfilled and rewarding lives. Look Up! also displays the vibrant beauty of the natural world in all its splendour through 40 stunning full-colour photos. The book is dedicated to one of America's early conservationists, Woody Wheeler's great grandfather, Jens Jensen, who is featured in a number of the book's essays and is the subject of the recent documentary, Jens Jensen - The Living Green.

Review - 'Woody offers a fresh perspective, freely sharing his knowledge of
ecology, bird behavior and the critical component of conservation.' Peg Abbott Executive Director, Naturalist Journeys

Review #2 - 'Woody is one of the best I know when it comes to engaging people
of all ages and backgrounds in the wonders of the natural world. His insights into nature, from highly urbanized areas to wilderness, are a joy to discover, maybe because his own joy in the natural world comes across through his writings and teachings.' Gail Gatton Executive Director, Audubon, WA
