Lessons from the Long Trail – How Twenty-five Days Changed My Life

Thursday, January 12 at 6 pm

luskin

Newfane resident and writer Deborah Lee Luskin will talk about her 2016 through-hike of The Long Trail, the oldest recreational footpath in the United States.

Between August 15 and September 8, Deb and a friend walked from Massachusetts to Canada. They’d both just turned sixty and decided that a long walk would be a good way to figure out what comes next in what poet Mary Oliver calls “your one wild and precious life.” Walking and talking, these two women reached the Canadian border with new ideas about how to live more mindfully.

In the Crowell Gallery –  Free.

Invasion of the Alien Bugs!

emerald-ash-borer

November 10th from 3:30 to 4:30 pm – for all ages

This free program will talk about the threat that the Asian Longhorned Beetle, Emerald Ash Borer and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid are to Vermont’s trees and economy.

It will also focus on how to identify these three major pests (including sharing samples for people to see), how to help prevent infestations caused by the movement of firewood, and what to do if somebody sees one of the invaders.

Hand-outs to help in identification will be available for all participants to take home. Bug tattoos for the young ones!

This program will be led by Carolyn & Gary Katz, with materials and information gleaned from a University of Vermont Extension Service seminar.
