Lake Sunapee Region, N.H. — The Center for the Arts will celebrate New Hampshire’s natural heritage with words, music and art in All Things Wild and Wonderful on Friday, April 5, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Knowlton House, Sunapee Harbor.
The free program, a CFA’s First Friday event, will include poetry, music and a photography-illustrated talk by naturalist Dave Anderson of South Sutton, N.H. The public is invited to attend.
Anderson will speak about New Hampshire’s “incredible” natural surroundings and how it improves mental and physical health and quality of life.
Anderson designs and delivers education programs and field trips that teach forest and wildlife ecology, forest stewardship, and land conservation. He is the director of Education & Volunteer Services for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forest.
He also writes a column for the New Hampshire Sunday News and for the Forest Society and hosts the bi-monthly program Something Wild on New Hampshire Public Radio.
The evening will also include readings and music: “The Swan” by Mary Oliver and Dianalee Velie’s “Claire de Lune” followed by Katelyn Croft’s harp rendition of Camille Saint-Saens’ “The Swan” and Debussy’s “Clair de Lune.” And CFA’s Literary Arts Guild will honor the winners of its Second Annual Springing into Poetry contest.
On the First Friday of each month, the Center for the Arts hosts free programs for the community: gallery openings and receptions, music events, and literary and theater nights. For more information, visit www. centerfortheartsnh.org.
