2014 Fireside Lecture Series

Take an armchair exploration this February when you attend one or all of these programs. Each speaker will highlight a particular aspect of nature that they are passionate about and share their creations that have emerged from their personal journeys connecting with nature. Refreshments served after each program where you will have a chance to speak with the presenter. Programs are free for members, and included with gate admission for nonmembers. Registration is required.


We would like to thank our 2014 Fireside Lecture Series speakers Lisa Rainsong, Pat Biliter and Joshua Clark for taking part in our 2014 Fireside Lecture Series. Their talks were fascinating and we hope you enjoyed them.


If you enjoyed Rainsong's presentation on birdsongs, check out her spring classes here at Holden. If your virtual tour of Little Mountain has left you wanting more, Holden offers regular guided hikes on the mountain. Let our guides show you this beautiful natural and historic treasure. And if Clark's presentation has sparked your interest in nature photography, stop in at the Corning Visitor Center between April 25 - May 30 to see the Still Point exhibit, featuring the work of local nature photographer, Geoff Baker, part of our celebration of the Rites of Spring.


The schedule for the 2015 Fireside Lecture Series will be posted in the fall. Check back then for more details.
