OLLI @ UConn Renaissance Lecture On The Environment – Restoration Of The Naugatuck River: Past, Present, And Future
September 25, 2019 @ 5:00 PM - 7:30 PMFree
OLLI at UConn is a member-driven program offering non-credit learning experiences (courses, lectures, and special events) to all adults who are 50 or older and want to engage socially and intellectually with their peers as teachers and learners. Join us on Wednesday, September 25th at 5:00pm for this fascinating lecture with Steve Gephard of the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Fisheries Division. John and Joyce DeCesare were founding members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Connecticut and have been longtime community leaders. John’s passion for learning throughout his life modeled OLLI’s philosophy of lifelong learning. He was a noted advocate of environmental conservation, which is why we were inspired to create an annual lecture series about what was most important to him. John was a true Renaissance man and, as such, the name of the fund is truly fitting. Donations to this fund provided the means necessary to hold this inaugural lecture with Mr. Gephard. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Call 203-236-9924 for more information.
