Can’t we all just get along when it comes to NH 2020, Nevada County’s controversial land-use planning effort?

A speaker in Nevada City Sunday may have some ideas along those lines.

Jonathan Kusel will discuss the “Art and Science of Collaboration” at the Sunday speakers’ series put on by the Nevada City-based Sierra Nevada Deep Ecology Institute.

“He is exactly the antidote we need to help prevent further polarization around environmental issues,” said Marge Kaiser, the Institute’s executive director.

Kusel is the author of many articles on collaboration, Kaiser said, including “New Voices, Old Beliefs: Forest Environmentalism Among New and Long-Standing Residents.”

Since 1993, Kusel has run a nonprofit organization called Forest Community Research based in Taylorsville in Plumas County.

Kaiser called Kusel’s talk a “must see for anyone who’s concerned about NH 2020.”

Kusel will speak from 4 to 6 p.m. at Madelyn Helling Library at 980 Maidu Way. The cost is $10, or $7 for students, seniors or Institute members. For information, call 265-6649.
