This is a fascinating and funny new documentary about a very particular subculture. It's an incredible fish-out-of-water story that follows the adventures of Steve Glew, a small-town Michigan man, who boards a plane for Eastern Europe soon after the fall of the Berlin Wall. His mission is to locate a secret factory that holds the key to the most desired and valuable Pez dispensers. If he succeeds, he will pull his family out of debt and finally be able to quit his job of 25 years. Steve becomes the hero of his own adventure, smuggling the rarest of goods into the U.S. and making millions in the process. It was all magical, until his arch-nemesis, The Pezident decided to destroy him.

Join naturalist and educator Joy Marzolf to learn about the wide range of mammals found around New England, from the woods to the fields to the suburbs. From the shy fisher to the comical chipmunk, rabbits, foxes, deer, coyotes and even black bear might visit neighborhoods, sometimes under the cover of night. Learn about mammal behavior, tracks and signs to help figure out who is in your neighborhood! But what about the shore? There we might see harbor, gray or even harp seals, or dolphins and whales off shore. Learn more about our New England marine mammals and tricks for telling them apart.This event will be held on Zoom. To join us, please register online, and we will email you the link shortly before the program.
