Off the Beaten Track Travel Talk Series
Ela Chapin, “The Ruby Mines of Madagascar in 1999”
Journey back in time to southern Madagascar, 20 years ago, to witness the beauty and simplicity of life there, rare island desert habitats, and visit a sapphire mining camp where gems had been just discovered months before. See images of the village which exploded from a few dozen residents to thousands of makeshift homes, and better understand the environmental and community challenges that come with the precious stones industry.

Climate Change Speaker Series
Bill McKibben: The Climate Movement, Close to Home and Far Afield—How Can We Get Big Change Fast?
Bill McKibben was going to speak at Montpelier High School on March 31, but unfortunately since we’re not able to have large gatherings, his talk has been recorded and can be watched Tuesday, March 31 from 7:00 – 8:00 PM at: https://www.facebook.com/KelloggHubbardLibrary/.
He will talk about where we stand as we approach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22nd and as the climate movement grows fast around the planet. Can we muster popular sentiment to change corporate and government policy with speed enough to catch up with physics?
If you're not able to attend the Facebook event, you can watch at this link: www.bit.ly/Bill-McKibben, starting at 7 pm, first come, first served.
