Called “one of the greatest gifts with which nature has endowed man … over the course of human history,” ash trees are rapidly disappearing from our roadsides and forests. Discover why they are dying and why the loss will likely have a larger impact on culture than ecology. Join award-winning author and former Department of Environmental Protection Deputy Commissioner David K. Leff for a slide-illustrated talk that will take you from forests to the workshops of craftsmen who fashion everything from snowshoes to museum-worthy baskets commanding tens of thousands of dollars.  Explore the deep connection between nature and culture! 6:00 p.m., A. B. Ceder Room, Dinner is included. Please BYOB and your own place setting. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Call 860-567-0857 or register online.  $35.00 for both Members and Non-Members.
