    On Tuesday, May 22, 2012, in an event co-sponsored by Northern Trust, we are proud to welcome Andy Griswold, Director of Eco-Travel for Connecticut Audubon Society (CAS). Hudson Bay is the land of the Polar Bear, Ursus maritimus. This lecture will show you the bears in their spectacular habitat and one of the world's most wonderful natural phenomena, the annual Polar Bear Migration along the Hudson Bay coast. Because of the relative ease of accessing this sub-population, Churchill is referred to as "The Polar Bear Capital of the World." The bears are not the only attraction as the austere desert-like tundra gives rise to breathtaking views of Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare, Snowy Owl, Gyrfalcon, and other wildlife against a magnificent backdrop.

        Becky Aikman, author of "Saturday Night Widows" was our featured speaker on Thursday, January 30, 2013. One night in 2010, Becky Aikman convened the first meeting of what she called the “Saturday Night Widows”—a group of six women (she among them) shocked to find themselves widowed in the middle of their lives. Becky’s idea was to create an amateur support group to help one another not only past the toughest transition they’d ever made, but to reinvent themselves in the face of grief and build their lives anew.
