Author Talk and Book Signing: Michael Finkel "The Stranger in the Woods"
(Wed. 4 Apr, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

In 1987, 20-year-old Christopher Knight walked into the woods surrounding the North Pond area of Maine, leaving the modern world behind. He would not have a conversation with another person for almost 30 years. Join Michael Finkel, author of The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit" on Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library to learn the amazing true story of how Knight survived for three decades alone in the woods, and why Knight just walked away.   Outside Magazine says that the book “reveals, in vivid detail, how Christopher Knight escaped society more completely than most anybody else in human history.” Sebastian Junger, author of “The Perfect Storm” says that the book is “a story that takes the two primary human relationships—to nature and to one another—and deftly upends our assumptions about both. This was a breathtaking book to read and many weeks later I am still thinking about the implications for our society and—by extension—for my own life.”   Finkel is the author of “True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa,” which was adapted into a 2015 major motion picture. He has written for National Geographic, GQ, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Vanity Fair, The Atlantic and The New York Times Magazine. He lives in western Montana.   Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books.

Author Talk and Book Signing: Karen Zimmermann "Nightwalk"
(Thu. 12 Apr, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

--Karen Zimmermann’s book “Nightwalk: Using All your Senses to Explore the Natural World” introduces readers to some of the creatures that roam the wilderness at night and adaptations they have made to thrive in the dark. The book also offers activities you can do to improve your own senses. Join Zimmermann, who also illustrated the book, for an author talk and book signing on Thursday, April 12 at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library.   “Nightwalk” grew out of a project Zimmermann did last spring as part of the Maine Master Naturalist Program. During that program, she designed a lesson plan and field kit to help people explore senses beyond vision. Now, Zimmermann celebrates the senses of hearing, touch, taste and smell and offers activities that can help sharpen each one, because as humans, we usually rely on vision most of the time. She also highlights how your senses can be used both during the day and at night and in all four seasons. Zimmermann will walk you through some of the activities she includes in her book at the talk.    Zimmermann owns Z Studio, a graphic design, advertising and web development studio in Bar Harbor. She lives with her husband in Otter Creek. For more information on the book visit zzzinc.com/nightwalk and for more information on the talk contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected] This talk was originally scheduled for March but had been rescheduled because of the snow.

SOUTHWEST HARBOR – On Wednesday, April 18 from 2 to 4 p.m., the Southwest Harbor Public Library is offering a workshop on identity theft.

Did you know that cyber criminals actually prey upon some groups of people more often than others? Who are these potential victims? And why are they more likely to be the targets of cyber scams?

(Sun. 22 Apr, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

March 25th ShineOnCass Easter Egg Hunt RESCHEDULED & REIMAGINED!

Due to extended winter weather, the March 25 ShineOnCass Easter Egg Hunt at Hart-to-Hart Farm & Educational Center has been rescheduled to an exciting new spring celebration! The community is invited to help welcome the farm’s new baby animals at the first ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower & Egg Hunt Sunday, April 22, from 2 to 4 pm at 16 Duck Pond Road in Albion.

Please bring a pet item to the “Baby Shower” to donate to the Humane Society Waterville Area in honor and memory of Cassidy Charette, who was a shelter volunteer. Children are asked to bring their own basket to collect hidden eggs on the farm. Egg Hunt begins at 2:30 pm for ages 0-6, followed by ages 7-12. Come meet the new baby calves, goats and welcome bunnies, sheep, and other farm animals at the petting area. The event also includes farm games, crafts, face painting and a visit by the Easter Bunny. All are encouraged to wear boots and warm clothing to the event.

Hart-to-Hart Farm is a family owned and operated organic dairy farm that offers a variety of educational programs for children, adults and families. Cassidy Charette, an Oakland teen who died in a hayride accident in 2014, was a long-time summer camper there. In 2015, farm owners Linda and Doug Hartkopf and the community helped build Cassidy’s Kitchen -- an outdoor, three-season kitchen for educational programs.

Suggestions for “Baby Shower” donations to the Humane society include the shelter’s most needed items: wood pellets for cat/kitty litter, dye free at foods (such as Purina Naturals) and canned food for kittens and cats, paté style, no fish please.

Hands-on Chainsaw Safety Workshop for Women coming to Dover-Foxcroft
(Fri. 27 Apr, 2018 9:00 am - 10:00 am)

Hands-on Chainsaw Safety Workshop for Women coming to Dover-Foxcroft

The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) takes pride in offering in-demand programs. In recent years, the demand for forestry workshops has greatly increased and we have seen each program we offer fill to capacity. Additionally, we have listened to our constituent’s requests for more hands-on programs, and answered by provided unique learning opportunities and chances for participants to hone useful skills. For our latest forestry workshop, we are partnering with the Penobscot County Soil and Water Conservation District to offer something special and very much in-demand, a Chainsaw Safety for Women Workshop on Friday, April 27th in Dover-Foxcroft.

Many of us own woodland. Do you utilize this land? If not, would you like to? With all the recent wind storms, perhaps you would like to learn chainsaw skills to take care of downed trees on your property, or clear deadwood in preparation for another storm. Perhaps you would like to start harvesting your own firewood. Whatever the reason, learning chainsaw skills can be hugely beneficial, yet the thought of operating a chainsaw can be overwhelming and intimidating. Many women don’t know where to begin when approaching the idea of using one for at-home purposes. This Chainsaw Safety for Women Workshop is designed to demonstrate and comfortably introduce the concepts of working with a chainsaw to women of all experience levels. What’s even better, participants will learn alongside two fantastic presenters and a small group of women.

Neurodiversity in the Workplace workshop will be held on Friday, April 27th at 3 PM
(Fri. 27 Apr, 2018 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

The Neurodiversity in the Workplace workshop will be held on Friday, April 27th at 3 PM,
and will help attendees define and understand different neurodivergent conditions. The
conversational format will answer participants’ questions about neurodiversity in their
workplaces or their own particular neurotypes. In the process, participants will realize
that good business management and “accommodation” for differences are often one and
the same.
