Environmental Treasures: Celebrating Thoreau's 200th Birthday

Tuesday, August 1, 7:00 PM 
Thomas Crane Library, 40 Washington Street

Adam Gamble, author of In the Footsteps of Thoreau, 25 Historic and Nature Walks on Cape Cod, will talk about Thoreau's encounter with the "wildness" of the ocean and share a slide show of his photographs of Cape Cod.

(Rain date: Sunday, August 6 at 6:30 PM) 
Squaw Rock Park

Join Peter Fifield and Sally Owen for a stroll around Squaw Rock, using quotes from Thoreau's work, to imagine how he might have experienced it. Share your thoughts, knowledge and questions about Thoreau.   Bring bug spray and wear long pants and socks that can cover pants bottoms (to minimize tick exposure).  Meet in the Nickerson Post parking lot at the end of Dorchester Street in Squantum.
