    Biodiversity University: Fall Warblers - Field Trip in Central Vermont

    07:00-11:00
    2018/09/15
    713 Elm St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA
    713 Elm St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    Saturday, September 15, 7 – 11 am
    Taking the tools we developed during the presentation earlier in the week, we will spend the
    morning at NBNC and nearby locations looking for warblers and other fall migrants. The riparian
    woods and thickets along the North Branch are prime habitat for a variety of migrants. In addition
    to many common species, we may find scarcer warblers such as Canada, Tennessee and
    Northern Parula. A deep, instructive exploration of fall warbler identification and ecology. Never
    again will confounding field marks stop you from enjoying Vermont’s fall avifauna! Fee: NBNC
    members/non-members.

    Brief Event Description:

    The Capital City Farmers Market moves to State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. Shop from 50 local farms and producers all season long, rain or shine. All products are grown or hand made by vendors from Central Vermont. Featuring live music through September.

    www.montpelierfarmersmarket. com

    Full State Street Move Information:

    This year is the Capital City Farmers Market’s 41st season, and there will be some big changes. Our outdoor market will be held at a new location on State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. We trialed this location last Fall for three market days, and it was a huge success. State Street will be shut down between Main St. and Elm St. on market days which makes for an easily walkable downtown area. Our regular market lot will be open for parking, which will be a net gain of parking spots compared to what we take up on the Street.

    The market itself will offer the same great vendor mix that makes the market such a fun destination for locals and visitors to the area. We feature over 65 full time and seasonal vendors from Central Vermont that grow or make 100% of the products they sell. This includes everything from seasonal produce to small batch cheese and one of a kind crafts. The majority of our vendors this season are returning vendors, but we do have some new craft and local food vendors that will be at the market part time.

    The outdoor market begins May 5th, during Montpelier’s May Day festivities. The market is open from 9:00 to 1:00 every Saturday from May through October. Our live music series begins May 19th and runs all Summer long. People can stay up to date on market vendors, music, and events by following us on Facebook, signing up for our weekly newsletter, or going to montpelierfarmersmarket.com

    On September 17th, Peace & Justice Center in Burlington is hosting a workshop called “Seeing & Disrupting Racism” at Montpelier’s Unitarian Church from 6-7:30 pm. We were hoping that we could promote it in your calendar. The description for the event is as follows:

    “This program was developed for predominantly white audiences because efforts to end racism do not fall solely on those oppressed. We start by defining racism. Facilitators will walk participants through the concept of white fragility, go over how it perpetuates racism, and specific ways to disrupt the cycle. This workshop is being offered free of charge thanks to support from the National Association of Social Workers Vermont.”

    Author Reading with Rick Winston, Red Scare in the Green Mountains

    19:00
    2018/09/18
    135 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA
    135 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    Sept. 18, 7 pm

    For a week in the summer of 1950, Vermont found itself on the front page of national newspapers, as Senator Joseph McCarthy charged that “Reds Infest Bethel, Randolph Center.”
    Winston has been researching this fascinating story, which features two outspoken newspaper editors, a Tibetan Buddhist dignitary, a local self-described “Red Hunter,” two actual Communists from out of state, and two well-traveled, prolific authors who were summer residents of Bethel—the Far East expert Owen Lattimore, and the Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson.

    Rick Winston & Michael Sherman: "Red Scare in the Green Mountains”

    19:00
    2018/09/18
    135 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA
    135 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    Sept 18 – 7:00 pm

    What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the “Red Scare” swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Author Rick Winston and Vermont historian Michael Sherman will explore some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural “rock-ribbed Republican” state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time. Rick will also read from his new book, “Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era 1946-1960.”
    Co-sponsored by Bear Pond Books and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Please enter the library by School Street entrance, as the main library will be closed.
    Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street
    Free.
