Local Event Calendar

Mon - Aug 19
  Sharon Land Trust

Monday, 8/19 to Wednesday, 8/21, 9am to 12pm

Skiff Mountain Preserve

Temporary parking is at 587 Skiff Mountain Rd

This stunning preserve has a trail system in need of some serious TLC.  We will be clearing logs and branches, raking the trail bed, cutting back invasives and marking the trail in advance of opening this exciting new trail to the public.

Every year, our wonderful bunch of volunteer monitors walk the many protected lands we hold and check that they are safe and well cared for.  This year we have exciting updates and some training for our volunteers, but anyone interested in conservation or how we navigate and document issues in the woods with old and new technology is welcome to come.

Anyone who would like to join us for the projects above, please email timhunter@sharonlandtrust.org or call the SLT office at 860-364-5137.  Dates and times are weather dependent, and we will email you if any projects need to be rescheduled.  For details on trailwork, please visit http://sharonlandtrust.org/trail-work-resources/

  Sharon Historical Society

Wild and Beautiful Creatures: The Life and Work of J.J. Audubon
is a celebration of the art, science and legacy of John James Audubon,
one of America’s greatest naturalists.
The exhibitions and associated programming will be presented by the Sharon Historical Society & Museum, Tremaine Gallery of the Hotchkiss School, and Sharon Audubon. 
The Tremaine Art Gallery exhibit, Wild and Beautiful Creatures, is on view August 30 - October 13, and includes original Havell prints, oil paintings, and a rare copper plate used in the printing.
The exhibit runs concurrently with The Life and Work of J.J. Audubon on view at the Sharon Historical Society & Museum September 14 - December 13.
This exhibit looks at Audubon’s fascinating professional and family life, the evolution of his publications, his innovative working methods, his complex relationship with the conservation of American species and their environment, and his heritage in the founding and work of the National Audubon Society. Among the objects on display will be one of Audubon’s rare portrait drawings, his favorite snuff box, and a beautiful passenger pigeon specimen.
The historical exhibition will be complemented by an exhibit of works by local artist Allen Blagden, one of today’s foremost wildlife watercolorists. A series of lectures and events at Hotchkiss, Sharon Historical Society, and Sharon Audubon will illuminate Audubon’s art, his place in history, and his legacy.  For comprehensive information about events please www.sharonhist.org/audubon or email, Audubon@sharonhist.org.
