November Book Discussion: 100 Heartbeats: The Race to Save Earth’s Most Endangered Species by Jeff Corwin

By Olivia Dorothy

Please join the Sierra Club and River Action on November 28 to discuss 100 Heartbeats by Jeff Corwin.

100 Heartbeats is an environmentalist’s safari of Earth’s most endangered animals.  Corwin – your guide and popular television host, adventurer and conservationist – describes his treks to find these precious creatures in their native habitats.  Written in a style reminiscent of a sportsman spinning a tall-tail of the one that got away, 100 Heartbeats is a book you can’t put down.

Corwin keeps the pages turning as he vividly describes “hunting” for these animals alongside the scientists and conservationists who are working to understand and save them.  His mission takes him from to equator to the poles and across the continents as he discusses the threats to the survival of these species.  And it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that all the animals in the “100 Heartbeats Club” are threatened by human activity.  But, hopefully, as Corwin concludes, human intervention and ingenuity can save a few.

Please join us on November 28, 2017 at 7PM at the River Action Office in Davenport to discuss 100 Heartbeats by Jeff Corwin.


Political Field Team Kickoff Party

Given the urgency of decisions made in the current political climate the National Sierra Club and Illinois Chapter are building a new program, the Political Field Team (PFT). The goal of the team will be to build political field power to elect local and state candidates who accept the science of climate change and are committed to supporting legislation that protects the environment.  


The Eagle View Group PFT includes four leadership positions, Political Field Team Chair, Voter Outreach Coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator and Data Director.  Each of these leaders will need supporting members to help accomplish the mission.


If you are interested in joining the EVG PFT please attend our Kickoff Party on Sunday Nov 19th, 2017. It will be 2-3:30 pm at  We will be providing additional information about the goals, strategies and tactics of the PFT.
