TUESDAY, JANUARY 6- “THE MOUNTAINS WILL WAIT FOR YOU” DVD documentary about Grace Hudowalski, the first woman and ninth person to achieve the Adirondack’s 46 high peaks. It is a fascinating story of a woman who, along with her passion for the backcountry, was a dedicated advocate for wilderness preservation at a time when that was overwhelmingly male.  Please join us!!

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3- “INVASIVE SPECIES OF THE LONG ISLAND SOUND”   Amy Mandelbaum, Outreach Coordinator for the Long Island Sound study  and Victoria O’Neill, Habitat Restoration Coordinator will be presenting a discussion with slides of  invasive species that they are working on eradicating, such as the Perennial Pepperweed and  Mile a Minute weed .   The discussion will also include how they work with local organizations on volunteer days to combat these species.
