Discussion Course - Reconnecting with Earth

$40

with David Lamon

Calendar Next session starts Jan 7, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Location: Fields Pond

Monday evenings starting January 7th (six sessions), 6:30 – 7:30 pm

Our world is changing at such an astoundingly fast pace. We get caught up in our daily lives and the problems we face—we end up losing touch with that deep connection we have to our planet. Reconnecting with Earth helps participants explore how our cultural beliefs and personal values affect the way we view and treat Earth. Together, we’ll discuss how our well-being is inextricably linked to the well-being of our planet. Participants discover a deeper respect for the planet and a renewed commitment to act—a shift that could be the key to real and lasting change.

New Year, New Birds

$40

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Jan 12, 2019 at 8 am

Members: $30, Nonmembers: $40

Kick off the year with a van trip to see as many FOY (First of Year) birds we can see. The route is yet to be determined but will likely explore the coast of York and Cumberland Counties or target lingering rarities.

We will leave Gilsland Farm in Falmouth at 8:00AM and plan to be back around 1:00PM but we ask that people are flexible with the return time. We make stops for bathrooms as needed, which can add time to the trip, and sometimes the birding is too good to wrap up on time!
