Event Description (more details are better!)
Invasive Weeds: What You Can Do
The Friends of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History &
Association to Preserve Cape Cod present:
Invasive Weeds: What You Can Do

with Mike Bald

 

Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 1pm.

Owner Mike Bald of “Got Weeds?” a Vermont based company, has years of experience fighting non-native invasive species that can dominate our landscapes. He uses manual and non-synthetic control methods to eradicate, contain, or suppress non-native invasive plants.

Manual control methods ARE effective in many scenarios, but few people have documented their efforts through to completion.  Mike has worked to control numerous plant species, including giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed, black swallow-wort, Japanese barberry, and wild parsnip.  A goal of Got Weeds? is to demonstrate through careful documentation that proper planning and appropriate treatments can be successful without turning to the use of synthetic chemical products.

Join Mike as he will share his insights and proven expertise to help landowners safely control non-native invasive plants!

Seven Thursdays; May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, and June 7 & 14, 2018

Drawing and painting from nature are relaxing and uplifting pursuits which connect contemplation, inspiration and personal growth in important ways. This course is for adults interested in this combination of nature, art and expression. Basic drawing tools, materials and techniques will be demonstrated and students may also work with color media of their choice, including watercolor, color pencils, pastel and acrylic. We will spend a part of each class looking at examples of artists’ various methods of creating images inspired by nature.

Working from natural objects and still-life arrangements, each student will be encouraged to find their individual mode of expression, from realism to abstraction. Ample one on one attention provided as well as group critiques. Beginners and all levels welcome.

For the first class bring 2B pencils, soft vine charcoal, a kneaded eraser and a 9x12 (or larger) good quality sketchbook.

If you have questions please contact the instructor at eve-asinwall@comcast.net

WINGMASTERS

New England Birds of Prey

with Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks of Wingmasters,

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 1pm

Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and they are hunting birds characterized by hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp talons. Raptors can also boast the best eyesight and the sharpest hearing in the animal kingdom. Raptors include hawks, falcons and owls, and this presentation, which incorporates 7-8 live birds of prey, gives an overview of these different categories. The program is designed to explain predation, the birds' place at the top of the food web, their different hunting adaptations and their status in a rapidly changing world. Because many birds of prey are declining in number, this presentation also features one or more of the endangered raptors that WINGMASTERS cares for, and explains why these species face an uncertain future.

Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks of Wingmasters are dedicated to increasing public understanding and appreciation of North American birds of prey. They are both licensed raptor rehabilitators based in MA. Most of the birds they rehabilitate can ultimately be released back into the wild, but in some cases the birds are left permanently handicapped. Julie and Jim are further licensed to provide a home for these nonreleasable raptors, and to use them for educational programs. Join us for this fantastic program and a rare chance to see these powerful, beautiful, and magnificent birds up close!
