The Secret Lives of Owls

Saturday, March 10

Discover the extraordinary features of owls, including exceptional eyesight, hearing, and ability to fly silently. This program is presented by Mary-Beth Kaeser, founder of Horizon Wings.  

All are welcome. Registration is required. Space is limited.

Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail 

Saturday, March 24
2:00 – 3:30 pm

Sam Ducharme set out on a 2180 mile, 14 state backpacking trip from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin Maine. During his six month journey he documented the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the wildlife, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as the people, culture and humanity at its finest.

Join Sam at the Wethersfield Library as he takes you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops and through the backcountry. See his gear, how he cooked, and listen to what it is like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people.
