Opacum’s Fall Dinner – September 19 “Where’s Your Walden” with Dr. Robert Thorson –

September 19, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for dinner with award-winning author Dr. Robert Thorson. The evening’s program, entitled “Where’s Your Walden?” will connect Thorson’s lifetime of study in the subjects of geology, Thoreau and New England’s landscape to the special character of our region.

Dr. Robert Thorson is a professor of geology at the University of Connecticut, and the author of seven books, Thorson’s newest publication, The Guide to Walden Pond provides readers an opportunity to learn about the natural and cultural history of this iconic American place. From his home in Storrs, Connecticut, he walks to work on a trail through the woods.

The evening includes dinner and ample opportunity to socialize with friends,

members of Opacum Land Trust, and to meet Dr. Thorson

and purchase a signed copy of one of his many books.

Social Hour begins at 5:30 pm, followed by dinner and program.

Proceeds from the dinner and a silent auction will support Opacum’s on-going land conservation work.
