Wednesday, August 4, 2021

In the garden behind the White Memorial museum, we will practice gentle, Vinyasa yoga as we listen to the birds, feel the morning breezes, and celebrate the warmth of the summer sun. Class will be followed by a brief guided meditation for those who would like to participate. This is an all levels, all ages program and requires no prior yoga or meditation experience! Recent studies have shown the benefits of yoga, which include stress reduction, improvement in strength, flexibility, and balance.

Please do not attend class if you aren’t feeling well. Payment may be exchanged without touch through Venmo (to @Judith-Ehrman-Shapiro). Other forms of payment include cash, check, and credit card.

Saturday, August 7, 2021

Invasive plants and animals have been a fact of life in North America and worldwide since people began to travel. The pace of introductions has only increased as transportation becomes faster and trade increases. Claire Rutledge, from the Connectiicut Agricultural Experiment Station introduces you to several “unwanteds”: Emerald Ash Borer, Asian Long-horned Beetle, and Spotted Lantern Fly. Some are already here, while others we hope to keep away with knowledge, diligence, and safe practices. Dr. Rutledge knows a thing or two about wood-boring insects. They are her area of expertise. 10:00 a.m., FREE, Zoom and Facebook Live. Zoom participants register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fl811FpVTOS1U4KNnOLoNg
