Unitarian Church Annex, Buffalo St Entrance


Bob Beck


The unique flora at Malloryville has been appreciated for many, many decades.  It's glacial kettles and eskers and diverse wetlands are a treat for hikers. But the background of Malloryville includes gravel mine plans, long environmental reviews, land deals and finally safety as a Nature Conservancy preserve. Bob Beck will relate his very personal story at Malloryville, where he is now the preserve Steward, having been deeply involved at every step. At the talk, his recent book, "The Journey at Malloryville Bog: Commitment, Teamwork and Tenacity in Defense of Land and Nature" (2013), will be available for purchase and signing.
