The Friends of Hempstead Plains are pleased to announce the publication of our new book, The Natural and Human History of Hempstead Plains. The work is interdisciplinary in approach and includes contributions from geologists, biologists, botanists, historians, and artists. A team of scholars from Hofstra University, Molloy College, and Nassau Community College, along with experts from the larger community, worked cooperatively on the book which was edited and planned by Dr. Paul van Wie of Molloy College. There are articles on both the geology and ecology of the Plains as well as their important role in the history of the United States. The book was designed to be the definitive work on the subject, and a valuable resource as we work to restore and preserve the remaining Plains acreage for future generations.

To mark the publication of the Natural and Human History of Hempstead Plains, the Friends of Hempstead Plains will sponsor a “Book Launch” event on Thursday, May 12. The event will take place at Nassau Community College, in the 11th floor of the Tower Building, 7:30 P.M. You are cordially invited to attend. You will have the opportunity to meet our authors, to have books signed, and to learn more about our efforts to preserve the Hempstead Plains.  Please purchase here in order to pick up your copy onsite.

Thank you!
