“Dunbar Brook Adventure Hike at Monroe State Forest”

Saturday, November 8th 2014 - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

 

Join historian Mike Whalen in “Dunbar Brook Adventure Hike at Monroe State Forest” for an adventurous natural and cultural history hike along remote Dunbar Brook in the wild mountains of Monroe. This glacial tributary of the Deerfield River lies deep within a boreal forest that has much of the primitive remoteness of the Adirondacks and thus has preserved its rugged character throughout the ages. Located partly along the route of an early stage road, the trail passes through stands of towering old-growth white pine that would have been youngsters when settlers arrived here in the 18th century. Other highlights of this difficult 7-mile trek include the ruins of a horse-changing station, gorgeous waterfalls, former mill sites, and spectacular vistas of the Deerfield River Valley at scenic Raycroft Lookout. Good physical condition and sturdy, waterproof shoes are recommended as there will be some steep climbs on rough trails. The program will take place from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 8.   Fee is $18 for Mass Audubon members and $22 for nonmembers, but nonmembers can join today during checkout and take immediate advantage of member prices.  Preregistration is required.  For more information, please contact Mass Audubon’s Connecticut River Valley Sanctuaries at 413-584-3009 ext. 812 or arcadia@massaudubon.org.

 

“Trees at High Ledges”

Saturday, November 8th 2014 - 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Join Arcadia Education Coordinator Patti Steinman for a Mass Audubon program on “Trees at High Ledges.”   Located in the panoramic Deerfield River Valley, High Ledges Wildlife Sanctuary has a variety of northern hardwood trees, such as sugar and striped maples, yellow birch, and American beech. Trees more commonly found in central New England such as oaks, hickory, and hop hornbeam are also found on this sanctuary. We will take a hike and learn to identify trees without their leaves. We will also enjoy the panoramic view from atop the ledges. The program will take place from 10 a.m. – noon  on Saturday, November 8.   Fee is $10 for Mass Audubon members and $15 for nonmembers, but nonmembers can join today during checkout and take immediate advantage of member prices.  Preregistration is required.  For more information, please contact Mass Audubon’s Connecticut River Valley Sanctuaries at 413-584-3009 ext. 812 or arcadia@massaudubon.org.

Forbes Library Event

Saturday, November 8th 2014 - 1:30 pm
at Forbes Library
21 West Street

Join Jim Donnellan of Critical Path Enterprises for a free workshop to learn how to defuse volatile conflict at the Forbes Library on Saturday, November 8 at 1:30 PM. It all begins with these three simple words, “help me understand…”  This is the foundation of an effective and simple way to address volatile interpersonal conflict, regardless of whether it occurs at home and work or on the global stage.

 

“The process is obviously far more than just three words for it takes us beyond seeing ourselves as separate from, and all too frequently in opposition to those around us.  It can unite us at a deeper level, making empathetic dialogue across great difference possible.  In this way, these three words can indeed change the world.  It is at that point that our enemies just might become our teachers.” Jim Donnellan

Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet – about interconnectedness and the human journey, about the beauty and mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of “folk” and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.

Kippy Phelps has contributed much to non-profits in and the life of the Pioneer Valley for many decades using the expressive arts for personal, societal and environmental change. Healing from Lyme disease, she is grateful to be visiting from Colorado for this event.

A silent auction will also be part of the evening. To donate art, items, or services, contact Eduardo at 413-230-6140 or esamilpa@aol.com.
