May 17:  Great Gardens Lecture Series – 7 pm
Our Great Gardens lecture series, presented by Patty Laughlin of Lorax Landscaping, continues with “All About Mulch.”  Bark mulch seems ubiquitous in our landscapes, so much so that most people take for granted that it’s needed.  In this talk, Patty will discuss why we mulch, its benefits and potential pitfalls. She’ll cover when and how often to mulch as well as how to apply mulch properly.  You’ll learn about various materials that can be used as mulch, including living mulches, and the pros and cons of each. 

May 21: Death in the White Mountains – 6 pm
Local author Julie Boardman will present a program based on her book, “Death in the White Mountains.”  The book, which is the first to focus on fatalities in the entire region, was written in the belief that by studying past fatalities and identifying the mistakes that caused them, we can learn how to be safe in the mountains. Using a variety of sources, Boardman compiled a list of 219 hikers, climbers and backcountry skiers who have died, then determined what fatal errors were made by the victims. “A majority of the deaths didn’t have to happen,” Boardman stated. “They were the result of an oversight or one or more bad decisions.” Boardman is the author of “When Women and Mountains Meet,” a book about the women who shaped the interesting history of the White Mountains. Her work has appeared in Appalachia (the journal of the Appalachian Mountain Club), Sierra (the magazine of the Sierra Club), Connecticut Audubon and many other publications. Since moving to New London, New Hampshire in 1990, Boardman has hiked extensively throughout New England.
