The Southborough Senior Center organized a nature series for seniors. I missed sharing news on the first session, but another is coming up next week.

On Tuesday, February 16th from 1:00 – 2:00 pm, seniors can join a zoom webinar to learn about “Wales: Castles, Butterflies and more”:

Although part of the present day United Kingdom, Wales is a country of ancient origins and wild lands. Stone monuments from its prehistoric past still can be found across parts of the country today, along with ancient castles, remains of magnificent abbeys and even Roman ruins.

The wild nature of this land can also be found in abundance, from the beautiful and colorful moors and butterflies of the Isle of Angelsea to the numerous birds and other wildlife of the coastal wetlands. More inland, the magnificent Kite can now be found again soaring as it looks for prey. Join us for castles, butterflies, birds and much more in a journey across Wales.

The “Joys of Nature” program will be led by Joy Marzolf. Her website’s bio describes:

I have loved animals from the time I was a child growing up in New England and would always take advantage of any outdoor time to explore nature. Now, I still love to explore, but also to share my knowledge about wildlife and nature in general.

In addition to a BA in Biology, I have been doing a variety of animal related education programs in my professional life for over 20 years. One of my favorite things to do is break people’s misconceptions about many animals, especially those that people fear, such as predators including sharks, reptiles, spiders and insects.

To register, call the Southborough Senior Center at 508-229-4453. If you get their voicemail, be sure to provide your name, phone number, and an email address where they can send you the zoom link.
