Great Meadows Evening Walk
Friday, August 3, 6:30-8 pm
Great Meadows NWR, Monson Rd., Concord

Please join me for an evening stroll through Great Meadows at the height of lotus bloom and beginning of migration season. We'll listen for crickets and katydids, look for early great egrets and blue herons feeding, and watch primrose blossoms open as darkness falls.  Summer evening skies and the glow of thousands of lotus blossoms are always spectacular. Hope to see you there!

Meet in the parking lot at GMNWR. Follow Rte. 62/Bedford St. in Concord to Monsen Rd.  Follow Monson Rd. to a sharp right curve and turn into the refuge driveway there on the left.

As always, your donations are appreciated.

Sensing Place: A Summer Photo Workshop
deCordova Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA
Saturday, August 4, 10 am - 12 pm 

Focusing on the glorious summer season as it reveals itself across the deCordova's natural and
artistically adorned landscape, this workshop will be facilitated by photographer and naturalist, Cherrie Corey, who lived in the heart of Thoreau country for the last forty years and has chronicled the beauty, moods, and rhythms of its landscapes in thousands of photographic images.  This program will build on delightfully successful workshops that Cherrie led last summer and winter, which opened participants to revelations of perception, challenges of the season, and a renewed sense of wonder and adventure with their cameras.

No photography experience necessary.  Participants use their own equipment of any type (smart phones, digital, or film cameras).

Savoring Concord's Botanical Legacy 
Concord Free Public Library, 129 Main St., Concord, MA
Friday, April 13, 7 pm - POSTPONED TO SPRING 2019

Concord's wild flora holds an incomparable place in history for the detail of its study and the memorable impressions it has made in the hearts and minds of readers, scholars, naturalists, and scientists around the world.  Thoreau's expansive and precise chronicles of Concord's plant life inspired more than a century and a half of further botanical exploration and documentation, artistic and literary renderings, and an enduring public interest in long saunterings through Concord's landscapes to commune with its plants and immerse in a deeply familiar sensibility of place.

Longtime Concord resident, naturalist, and photographer, Cherrie Corey, has been an intimate student, active field consultant, and popular teacher of Concord's flora and landscape for many years. Her field programs, website, and photographic presentations have introduced thousands to the plants and wild places that form the essence of this historic town.  With her beautiful photographs and intimate knowledge, Cherrie will take us on a botanical stroll through time and place to meet Concord's floral residents (indigenous and introduced) and some of the key people, past and present, who have helped to keep this legacy alive and flourishing.
