Secrets of the Apps with Officer Rich Marsh: Encore Presentation

Do you wonder what could be hiding in plain sight on your child's smartphone?  Join Officer Rich Marsh as he takes a deep dive into the world of smartphone apps and their hidden uses.

Officer Rich Marsh has been an officer with the Woodbury Resident Trooper Office for over 14 years and he has served as a 5th Grade DARE program instructor at Woodbury Middle School.  During his time as an officer, Officer Marsh has conducted several large scale investigations involving cellular phones and the apps that people use for nefarious reasons to include drug sales transactions, harassment, bullying, and threatening complaints.  After an incident occurred at the Middle School involving several children and the SnapChat app, it became apparent to Officer Marsh that many parents were not fully aware of the dangers of this particular application, and many of those same parents wanted to be educated about the dangers of this and the variety of other apps that are readily available to kids.  This program was created to give parents the information and resources that they need to make smart decisions about their child's cellular phone use.  "Secrets of the Apps" is not only for parents, but also grandparents or anyone else caring for school-aged children.

Blindsight: Visual Loss and Creativity

Is illness an obstacle, or could it be an opportunity, for the genius of creativity? How did artists who developed visual loss cope, contend and overcome their disability? How did it influence or change their artistic arc and trajectory? Join Doctor Vincent de Luise as he exploreds the topic of illness and it's effect on creativity.

In this conversation, Dr. de Luise will discuss the visual impairments of several of the greatest artists in the western Canon- Titian, Rembrandt, Goya, Joseph Mallord William Turner, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet, Georgia O’Keefe and Chuck Close, as we take  a “slow look” at their paintings, to demonstrate and better understand how and why they overcame their loss of sight to create masterpieces.

Doctor Vincent de Luise and his family have been proud residents of Woodbury since 1982. Dr de Luise is an assistant professor of ophthalmology at Yale University School of Medicine, and a distinguished visiting scholar at Stony Brook University School of Medicine.

There are 45 spaces available.

Mushroom Identification for Beginners

What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry?

Join a foraging family who hunt, photograph, identify, and love to eat the fungi in New England for a presentation and discussion about the wild and very edible mushrooms you can find in our state.  The 3 Foragers will dispel common myths, learn how to safely identify mushrooms with visual clues and guidebooks, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms.

The 3 Foragers are from southeast Connecticut and members of Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, as well as avid wild food foragers. The 3 Foragers have been studying, photographing, and eating wild foods since 2005, and have given over 150 educational walks, lectures, and private classes for libraries, land trusts, nature centers, summer camps, and garden clubs since 2016. They write a blog about their adventures and travels at http://the3foragers.blogspot.com/ and have written a book titled Adventures in Edible Plant Foraging.
