From the Southborough Public Library:
The Southborough Public Library will host a talk on the Asian Longhorned Beetle, a menace to central Massachusetts vegetation of late. There will be one session at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 19 and the same session on Wednesday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m.
Linda Hubley, of the United States Department of Agriculture, who is a Southborough resident and avid outdoors person, will present. Linda became the first female Massachusetts State Park Supervisor in 1981, supervising Walden Pond State Reservation. She has taught about the environment in Southborough, served on the Southborough Recreation Facilities Committee, Conservation Commission and Roads Safety Committee, the Local Emergency Planning Committee and other organizations. In 1998, Linda co-founded the Sudbury River Watershed Organization, and was the recipient of the Elaine Beals award from the Southborough Open Land Foundation this year for her environmental dedication.
The talk is free and open to the public. Call the Library at 508.485.5031 for more information, and to sign up to learn about the Asian Longhorned Beetle in Massachusetts at the Southborough Library on either October 19 or 20.
