Most Americans agree that family comes first, but America is the only developed nation in the world without paid leave. In one of the richest countries, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can be a trigger into poverty. Weaving powerful personal stories with insightful interviews, Zero Weeks is a groundbreaking documentary by award-winning director Ky Dickens that explores America’s paid leave crisis and the cost of doing nothing.

Salamanders and frogs migrate by the thousands from forests to wetlands each spring, often crossing our roads at great peril. These seldom-seen amphibians radiate charisma, color, inspiration, and moxie on even the rainiest April nights. But they need our help! Join NBNC and the Vermont Center for Ecostudies for this evening presentation about our local amphibians. Learn how you, your family, or your students can find and enjoy these cryptic migration corridors safely. Find out about ongoing amphibian research at NBNC and VCE, and how you can get involved with amphibian citizen science. Free!

Join us for this 2-part workshop series on botanical illustration. The first class will cover: observing the shapes and details of plants carefully; seeing shapes in a way that translates to the page; and creating an initial, very detailed pencil drawing of your subject. The second session will cover: botanical illustration techniques for pen and ink, including stippling and cross-hatching; we’ll discuss different tools of the trade; and we’ll complete our botanical illustrations using pen and ink. You are welcome to bring a favorite pressed plant specimen, small houseplant, or high-resolution photograph of a plant that shows a lot of complex detail and structure to be the subject of your drawing. Fine drawing paper, pencils, and a couple options for art pens will be provided. Ages 14 and up. Taught by plant ecologist, flower farmer, and floral designer Eva Dannenberg Alexander. See link for registration or go to northbranchnaturecenter.org.
