Our evening will start with Sycamore Park District Naturalist, Nicholas McCarthy, highlighting Park District and community projects.
Then we are taken back to 1963 as we meet Rachel Carson at her Summer cottage in Maine. Goddard portrays Carson as she discusses her childhood love for the living world, her passion for writing, and her work to awaken the world to the beauty and fragility of nature
