We are always planning ahead, so check back periodically to see if we’re coming to a Massachusetts venue near you!
Tuesday, May 15, 7:30 p.m. Conway Historical Society, Conway, MA This will not be a regular Roadshow, but a presentation by Sarah Doyle of PVMA’s new Impressions from a Lost World website. Edward and Orra Hitchcock spent the first four years of their marriage in Conway, where Edward was pastor of the Congregational Church and Orra fulfilled the role of minister’s wife. While there, they gathered more specimens for their herbarium and Orra produced Fungi Selecti Picti, a lovely little book of her watercolors of local mushrooms. In 1825, they moved to Amherst for Edward to become a professor at Amherst College, and Orra’s work in scientific illustration moved from botany to geology. FREE.
Saturday, June 2, 10-5, WGBY Asparagus Fest on the Hadley Town Common, MA, on Rt. 9. Jurassic Roadshow and other folks from the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association will again be part of this celebration of all things local. Farmers’ market, craft vendors, live music, great food (did you know that asparagus was dinosaurs’ favorite food?), and local craft beers (also a dinosaur favorite, or so we’ve heard). https://www.wgby.org/asparagus
