Public program: Discover Connecticut’s Natural Wonders
If you’d like to learn how you can explore the natural history of Connecticut here’s your chance. This month, The Connecticut College Arboretum, New London, will present a special, four-session course about the nature of the state that will intrigue and delight. "Exploring the Natural History of Connecticut—and why it matters!" tells tales of local discoveries about geology, dinosaurs and wildlife, describes trips to places around the state where essential concepts of earth science are brought to life, and draws connections to events around the globe today.
The course will be presented by Brendan Hanrahan, editor of "Connecticut Windows On The Natural World," and the "Road to Discovery Series of guides to the natural history of Connecticut". The Arboretum has been publishing scientific bulletins about the nature of Connecticut for more than 50 years.
Open to everyone from weekend adventurers, to teachers, to parents, the course is scheduled for Wednesday evenings, Oct. 12, 19, 26 and Nov. 2, 6:30-8:30 pm. Teachers will be awarded 8 CEUs for the four classes. The fee is $75 for Arboretum members, and $88 for non-members. Call the Arboretum at (860) 439-5060 to register or email Assistant Director Kathy Dame for more information.
