Springtime is John Burroughs Time

Springtime is John Burroughs Time!

Does Springtime in the Hudson Valley awaken something in you? Do you delight in the simple beauties of flowers poking through the earth, especially after a long winter dormancy? If so, you are in good company! John Burroughs, the famed literary naturalist and son of the Catskills, found joy in these things and more.

You are invited to join us this spring for six Wednesday evening sessions to enjoy and discuss excerpts from John Burroughs’ writings. Presenter Anne Richey has taught numerous courses for both Bard’s and SUNY-New Paltz’s Lifetime Learning Institutes. She is a student of John Burroughs’ work and serves as a docent at Woodchuck Lodge, in Roxbury NY, the cabin where Burroughs summered the last ten years of his life.

Please join us Wednesday April 5, 12, 19, 26 and May 3 & 10 from 7-8:15 pm for enriching discussions. The cost is free and we look forward to discovering the hidden treasures of the Catskills with you.

“Nature is always new in the spring, and lucky are we if it finds us new also.” John Burroughs
