Description: Join us for our first once-a-year book club where we pair natural history books with interesting specimens from the sanctuarys permitted natural history collection. This year, read Tim Birkheads The Most Perfect Thing: Inside and Outside a Birds Egg or Carroll L. Hendersons Oology and Ralphs Talking Eggs, or watch Poached, a documentary about obsessed egg collectors in Britain. Choose one of the three selections based on your time and interests or enjoy all three! At the meeting we will discuss what weve learned and then examine selections from Wachusett Meadows fascinating egg collection. Egg collecting was the norm in natural history studies until it became illegal in the United States in the early 1900s. The sanctuarys collection was donated for educational purposes.
Leader: Kristin Steinmetz, Education Coordinator. For more information and to register, call 978.464.2712.
