Introduction to Green Burial
Introduction to Green Burial
with Carol Coan 

Saturday, April 18, at 1 PM 

Introduction to Green Burial will address what green burial is, how it differs from conventional burial, how and where it can be done, and what the present situation is in Massachusetts.

Carol Coan is an anthropologist with a special interest in what we do with our bodies after death. She is a former president of Funeral Consumers Alliance of Western Massachusetts, and she regularly teaches classes on end-of-life planning. Carol is a founding member of Green Burial Massachusetts, whose mission is to start Massachusetts’s first conservation cemetery, open to all, and which has teamed up with Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust to locate suitable land for that project.

The Quest for the Eastern Cougar, with Robert Tougias

The Quest for the Eastern Cougar
with Robert Tougias

Tuesday, April 21, 2015, at 6:30 PM

Nature writer Robert Tougias journeys deep into the world of the cougar and into the reasoning of those that believe they exist and those that do not.  For decades, wildlife biologists have been telling us that cougars do not exist east of the Mississippi, and yet each year there are hundreds of people claiming to have seen one.  Eastern sightings have increased to offer better evidence of their existence.  No matter what you choose to believe, Tougais's book, The Quest for the Eastern Cougar: Extinction or Survival? provides an informative voice of reason that quiets the confusion regarding this powerful predator.  Robert asks why this phantom of the eastern woods stimulates such passion among so many people, but more importantly, whether or not cougars have survived in the East and if there is any truth to these claims.

Robert Tougias is an established nature writer and author.  He has contributed several outdoor columns to newspapers throughout New England and his articles on cougars have appeared in many magazines including Appalachian Trailways and Fur-Fish-Game.  Robert’s fascination with cougars began at an early age, and he is known by many wildlife biologists for his extensive knowledge on the cougar of the East.  His work on cougars was published in the peer-reviewed Proceedings of the Eastern Cougar Conference.  Robert received his degree in Natural Resources from the University of Massachusetts and worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
