Grange Lyceum: The Influences of Wild Places
March 11, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $5
Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate. The current Lyceum Series at the Grange continues this tradition with lectures and programs of interest to the community. (Whallonsburg Grange)
The Influences of Wild Places, with Marianne Patinelli-Dubay, Environmental Philosophy
Program Coordinator, SUNY-ESF’s Northern Forest Institute
Artists, writers, philosophers and all kinds of creative thinkers are drawn to these mountains
for their inspiration. They have an impact far beyond their natural beauty. This program will look at the impact of “wild” places on the human spirit and how place and people impact each other.
