Using Errol, New Hampshire as a base of operations, this presentation will take you to the upper Androscoggin River, the Dead Diamond watershed, and some of the numerous lakes and ponds. Famous for its place in New Hampshire’s logging history, the Androscoggin River is now a popular fly fishing destination and is one of the few rivers in New Hampshire that can be fished from a drift boat. The presentation will discuss when is the best time to fish these waters and what flies work best at different times of the season.

David Kolesar is a licensed New Hampshire fly fishing guide and a partner in New Hampshire Rivers Guide Service and the Northeast Fly Fishing School. He spends the fishing season guiding anglers throughout New Hampshire, with excursions to Massachusetts and Connecticut. Drift boat operations are conducted on the large rivers of northern New Hampshire.

David is certified by the International Federation of Fly Fishers as a fly casting instructor and also teaches fly casting and fly fishing for L.L. Bean’s Burlington, MA store. He has been a volunteer fly fishing instructor with New Hampshire Fish and Game’s Let’s Go Fishing program for over twenty-five years. David ties his own flies and is a past president of the United Fly Tyers, one of the oldest fly tying clubs in the U.S. He can also be found as a demonstration fly tyer at the International Fly Tying Symposium, The Fly Fishing Show, the International Federation of Fly Fishers festivals and other events. He is a member of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild and has fly fished many national and international locations, including Alaska, Brazil, and the Bahamas.

Do you enjoy touring beautiful gardens? Jana Milbocker and Joan Butler of Enchanted Gardens will show you the best public gardens, nursery display gardens, and private gardens open to the public in the Northeast to visit for inspiration! Learn about each garden's highlights, ideal times to visit, and enjoy a visual tour of each amazing destination.

Jana Milbocker is the principal of Enchanted Gardens, a lecturer and garden writer. She has a passion for landscape design and horticulture, and has been gardening on her 2-acre property in Holliston’s historic district for over 20 years. The garden surrounding her Victorian home features more than 140 varieties of trees and shrubs, perennial gardens, peony and rose beds, water features and shady retreats. Jana is interested in all aspects of design—spatial relationships, the interplay of light and shadow, color theory, texture, proportion and plant combinations. Trained as a graphic designer, Jana brings years of critical design thinking, clarity and cohesiveness to her landscape solutions. Her professional experience includes twenty five years as an art director and designer. Jana holds a BFA in Graphic Design, an MBA, and coursework in horticulture and landscape design.

Joan Butler, lecturer,  has been an enthusiastic gardener for over 30 years, and believes gardens should invite you to linger in the world outside your door. Her gardens have been included on several garden tours, and feature exciting plant combinations, dramatic horticultural specimens, and collections of hosta, heuchera and epimedium. Joan is a Master Gardener, a horticulturalist at Weston Nurseries, and is the immediate past Chairman of the Massachusetts Landscape Design Council.

Electric Joni Mitchell, the Police, Steely Dan and Frank Zappa are all influences in this music. You can hear Zoffer's roots in classic jazz and classic rock from his hometown of Pittsburgh, along with the craftsmanship he learned studying jazz composition at Oberlin Conservatory and New England Conservatory (NEC). This has allowed Zoffer to have the range to be both a featured rock and jazz artist at NYC clubs like the Bitter End, and also to be a crossover jazz/classical guest performer/featured composer/arranger/soloist with the Handel and Haydn Society and Boston Philharmonic. He will be accompanied by female vocalist, Burcu Gulec, as well as other area musicians.

Zoffer chairs NEC's Prep and Continuing Education Jazz Department, and serves on the faculty of the Contemporary Improvisation Department.

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Dan and Marilyn Brielman of e-Awakening, a website for 'The Preservation of Nature & the Protection of Resources' will share information about this wonderful 230 mile resource with 16 miles of trails in Andover.

The idea for the Bay Circuit Trail & Greenway first arose in 1929. It would be an “outer Emerald Necklace,” proponents said—a greenbelt that would mirror the famous string of Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks threading through urban Boston—and would provide open space for the metropolitan area’s quickly expanding population. Over the next several decades, various public and private parks and reservations were established in the area between what is now Route 128 and Interstate 495, but they failed to keep pace with commercial and residential development. In the 1980s, interest in the project was renewed, and in 1990 the Bay Circuit Alliance formed to make the trail and greenway a reality. The BCA has focused on linking segments of the Bay Circuit Trail, which provides a place for recreation while ensuring the protection of open space in the region by adding more “pearls” to the “emerald necklace.” Beginning at Plum Island and ending in Kingston Bay, the trail and greenway is located close to 4 million people in Eastern Massachusetts. The trail provides close-to-home recreation including: walking, biking, snowshoeing, horseback riding and cross-country skiing. Many sections of the trail are accessible by the MBTA commuter rail and other public transit systems.

In the fall of 2012, the Appalachian Mountain Club and The Trustees of Reservations, two of Massachusetts’ largest and oldest conservation organizations, began working together with the Bay Circuit Alliance in the completion, enhancement, and long-term protection of the recreational trail and greenway. The two organizations are working with the Alliance to fulfill the vision of the Bay Circuit by closing  the final gaps of the trail, recruiting and organizing volunteers, improving the trail experience through improved maintenance and signage, securing permanent protection for the trail corridor and the greenway, and encouraging the public to get out and explore the trail’s 230 miles.

Become inspired to create beautiful pastel paintings by exploring America’s foremost modernist pastel painter of flowers.

The Pastel Art of Georgia O’Keeffe: Modern American Abstraction

Focusing on the calla lily, participants work in tandem with the artist, Gregory Maichack. Also, topics such as her landscapes, shells and more will be covered. From sheer beginners with no experience to advanced students, all will experiment with hundreds of pastels learning pastel handling techniques O’Keeffe used in her pastel art. Scumbling, feathering, blending, slurring, edges, and layering will be mastered in this direct tactile medium of pure and nuanced color. How layering is accomplished without fixatives for achieving O’Keeffe’s “clean” look will be a focus as well as building an abstract foundation through Leonardo da Vinci’s revolutionary drawing technique.

All materials provided. Space is limited to 16 participants. Registration required.
