Dr. Greg Pope speaking at Durand-Hedden House & Garden

Dr. Greg Pope presented the public lecture to the town’s citizens at the historic Durrand-Hedden House and Garden, on Sunday, April 14. This lecture was part of their monthly event series, and provided a vision of how their neighborhoods looked at the height of our last Ice Age glacier advance, ~20,000 years ago, while explaining the basics and importance of ancient and modern climate change. Due to popular demand, the single lecture was repeated twice in the afternoon, for a total audience of 86.

Your presentations at Durand-Hedden House were fabulous! Everyone left buzzing about glaciers and the cliffs and boulders in our beloved South Mountain Reservation. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain it all – twice! We deeply appreciate it.
