The Education Committee is planning another stellar event in 2012 as a follow up to our joint sponsorship with the Abbot Public Library of the wonderful talk on Bringing Nature Home by Professor Douglas Tallamy last October. This year, on Tuesday, October 2, the Conservancy will again collaborate with Abbot Library to offer a talk by Jay Johnson, familiar to many Marbleheaders for his beautiful artistic renderings of the maps in the book Discovering Marblehead. Jay’s talk and slide show will include references to his 10,000 mile trip around the Natural spaces in the U.S., images of his paintings, photos of the Trail Crews in Marblehead and the importance of spending time in the natural environment. This talk will appeal to all ages, so mark your calendars and save the date. More details will appear in future newsletters and articles in the Marblehead Reporter.
