The Sound of (Nature’s) Music, with Education Director Carrie Szwed

Thursday, October 15, 2020

The Litchfield Hills are alive with the sound of music…birds singing, toads trilling, coyotes howling! Join Education Director Carrie Szwed for a program about the “music” of animals. Identifying animals by sound is a great way to get to know the creatures that call CT home. Audiences will learn just “who-who-whoooo” is making those common noises we hear in nature. A live barred owl will make an appearance too! 2pm. This free virtual program will be hosted in Zoom and simulcast on Facebook Live.

The Beauty of Clouds with Tom Alena

Saturday, October 24, 2020 (please note, this is a change to the original date of Oct. 17)

Clouds, what are they and what goes on inside of them to make rain and snow?  For most of humanity, no one really knew. In fact, as late as the 1800’s they were described as “entities” in literature.  This vague definition allowed for many myths to be created around them. No doubt that clouds had something to do with water, but the link between groundwater and rain wasn’t clear (no pun intended).

This program reveals the history of cloud observation, their use as weather forecasting tools, and the science of how they form precipitation.  We will go over cloud naming and the man behind the “cumulus” description.  Utilizing the latest satellite technology , we will look at how clouds play a vital role in climate change scenarios.  You’ll never look at a cloud the same way again. 3:00 p.m. on ZOOM.  Members: FREE, Non-members: $10.00.  Please pre-register www.whitememorialcc.org You will receive an email with the Zoom link to the program.
