PARALLEL PLAY: OF IVORY-BILLS AND IRISH CASTLES
April 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Tim Gallagher and Rachel Dickinson will give a talk open to the public in conjunction with Susan Rogers’s class, “Reading and Writing the Birds”. They lead parallel lives. During their 25-year marriage, Tim searched for the world’s rarest birds in the planet’s most inhospitable places—swamps seething with poisonous snakes; Mexican mountains teaming with armed drug traffickers. Meanwhile, travel writer/author Rachel traveled to exotically beautiful landscapes around the globe, from Tibet to the tip of South America, writing articles and essays for top magazines. Hear how these two accomplished writers have managed to raise a family, produce books, and keep their heads from exploding. Location: Laszlo Z. Bito ’60 Auditorium, Reem-Kayden Center for Science and Computation (RKC) 102, 31 Campus Road, Bard College.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
