In addition, there will be a short film by Eva Lewis on her trip to Gaza. This is the beginning the upcoming series "Films of Palestine," scheduled for the first Friday of every month through September. Guest speakers involved with the films will be part of the series.

Enjoy the beauty of the woods and fields with Environmental Educator Judy Onufer and search for spring ephemerals! “One of the earliest plants to emerge and bloom in the spring is the Skunk Cabbage,” said Judy. “Botanists have found that this plant actually generates its own heat and melts the snow around its spring shoots.” Comfortable sturdy sneakers or hiking boots are recommended.
