Naturalist, Mary Holland, Scheduled for March Meeting Please join us on March 25th for the SRKG annual meeting. The board is very pleased (and excited) about this year’s speaker, Mary Holland. Again we are pleased to be able to use the activity room at Our Lady of Fatima Church on Main Street in New London. Mary Holland, natu- ralist, wildlife photographer, columnist and author, re- sides in Hartland, Vermont. Mary’s work in environ- mental education includes directing the state-wide En- vironmental Learning for the Future (ELF) program for the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) for eight years, working as a resource naturalist for the Massachusetts Audubon Society, designing and presenting her own hands-on Knee-high Na- ture Programs for libraries and elementary schools throughout Vermont and compiling Vermont’s Rare Bird Alert for five years for the Vermont Center for Ecostudies. Her children’s book, Milkweed Visitors, introduces young and old alike to the insects that visit a milkweed patch. Mary’s most recent book, Naturally Curious: A Photographic Field Guide and Month-by-Month Journey Through the Woods, Fields and Marshes of New England won the 2011 National Outdoor Book Association award, in the Nature Guidebook category. Mary offers adult and children’s natural history pro- grams throughout New Eng- land. Her natural history blog can be found at her website. As in the past, we will begin the evening with a scrumptious buffet supper at 5 p.m. Following the eats will be a short business meeting and then Mary Holand’s slides and talk. Please contact Jean La- Chance (927-4345) to tell her that you are coming and what you would like to contribute to the buffet table. (She might have a suggestion for you to even out the offerings, so if you are deter- mined to bring a certain item, make sure to call on the early side.) If you are only interested in the program, that should start at about 6:30 p.m.
