Rachel Carson, An Environment Pioneer

50 Years after "Silent Spring"

Silent SpringJoin us on Monday, Sept. 10 at 1:30 p.m. for a discussion of the book and film Silent Spring and ecological issues.

Rachel Carson was a government biologist when she first noted the negative effects of pesticides and herbicides in the early 1960s. The private sector ignored and attacked her for her work. Yet she persevered, enlightening the world to the harmful effects that unregulated use of such chemicals have on our environment.

We look forward to your participation in what should be an interesting and informative program.
