The Clark Library preserves and provides access to over 130,000 books, manuscripts, and artworks dating from the 15th century to the present. But there is a library of living things on the five acres of green space outside the library’s building, too. This event will bring together both our indoor and outdoor collections, as we explore nature’s histories – and its present! All ages are welcome to attend.

Participants will learn about bees and beekeeping, go on bird walks, make their own field notebooks, plant seeds to take home from our heirloom seed library, learn how people in the past studied and collected the natural world through our library collections, and much more.


The event is free to attend and will be held in-person at the Clark Library.
Registration will close on Wednesday, May 15 at 5:00 p.m.
Walk-in registrants are welcome as space permits.
