The Wild and Wonderful World of Insects - WCLT meeting June 11, 7PM

WCLT Annual Meeting: The Wild and Wonderful World of Insects

Monday, June 11, 2012
7:00 - 8:00 PM
St. Luke’s Parish Hall, 1 Ruggles Street

For forty days and forty nights, naturalists Charley Eiseman and Noah Charney traveled the continent. They returned with thousands of photographs, not of Yosemite's grand vistas or Yellowstone's bison herds, but of tiny eggs stuck to flagpoles, origami made by beetles, and the artfully crafted portable houses of caddisfly larvae. The trip was field work for their new book, Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates, which won the 2010 National Outdoor Book Award for best nature guidebook. Egg cases, cocoons, galls, leaf mines, burrows, nests, and many other curiosities are illustrated in the book’s pages. In this talk, the authors will show images of exquisite invertebrate-created objects, discuss mind-boggling natural history, and share amusing anecdotes from their eccentric journeys. Professional entomologists and bug-haters alike have found themselves rolling with laughter and staring in horrified fascination during this entertaining presentation. Presentation followed by reception and refreshments.

8:00 - 9:00 PM: Annual Meeting

Letter to the Editor: 15th Anniversary Thanks from WCLT

To the Editor:

The Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) would like to express its gratitude to all those in the community who have helped us celebrate our 15th anniversary. Our gratitude also goes to the people of Westborough for their support over the past 15 years as our organization has grown from 14 founders to more than 300 residents. Thanks to all who have volunteered their time and labor, made monetary contributions, left bequests, or donated land and easements.

We appreciate the people who have attended our walks and talks, taken part in our activities such as our nature photography contest and the annual Earth Day clean-up, and joined our work parties. They have helped WCLT to clear invasive plants and build and maintain Charm Bracelet and other trails, as well as open space areas such as WCLT’s Gilmore Pond. To gain a greater appreciation of nature, residents and teachers have regularly read WCLT’s “Nature Notes.”

For our gala 15th anniversary wine tasting, we thank Arturo’s Ristorante for hosting the event and Julio’s Liquors for providing the wine. Domenic Fabiano and Dan McCurley, along with the staff of Arturo’s, created a memorable celebration. Tim Korby from Julio's Liquors/Angel Share and his wine experts ensured the party’s success.

We are also grateful to these donors of our prizes: the O'Reilly Family, the Emery Family Farm, Nan Burke, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Kate Bardsley, Ian and Maureen Johnson, and Tim Koehler. Each guest took home a wine glass, etched with the WCLT logo, as a special anniversary memento. Cellist James Hardy of Worcester and St. John's school provided beautiful music.

Proceeds from this celebration benefit WCLT and the cause of land preservation in Westborough. We thank all of our members, old and new, for supporting us.
