History, birds of prey and arctic whales at EPOCH

Another Valentine’s Day has come and gone. We had a lot of fun celebrating, making Valentine’s and of course, indulging in chocolate! But the fun’s not over. We have plenty more great events planned at our EPOCH communities this week. Professor Gary Hylander is returning for a riveting presentation on Adolf Hitler. Come by and discuss the insights of this renowned history buff. The Massachusetts Audubon Society will also come by to present “Birds of Prey.” You’ll learn how birds of prey hunt, what they eat and what makes them special. Plus, you’ll get to see hawks, owls, eagles and more up close! But these aren’t the only animals you can learn about this week. Local science writer Todd McLeish will tell you all about artic whales. We will also host “Hearth of the Home,” a presentation by Abigail Whitney on 18th century life. Finally, our last “Flex and Stretch” class for seniors is this week. Don’t miss the chance to make new friends and engage in healthy, gentle exercise! Keep reading to learn more.
