GC's Kevin Dodge to present 'Night Sounds of the Appalachians'
Kevin Dodge, director of the Natural Resources and Wildlife Technology program at Garrett College, will present 'Night Sounds of the Appalachians' as part of the Joan Crawford Lecture Series presentations on Tuesday, February 27 at 7 p.m. in Room 511 (Garrett College Library) at the Garrett College campus in McHenry.
Dodge will present an entertaining and educational introduction to the different hoots, howls, growls and peeps heard at night in the mountains of western Maryland. As part of his presentation, he will weave together facts, stories and sounds to recreate a night in the Alleghenies.
In memory and in honor of the dynamic educator Joan R. Crawford, the Garrett College faculty created the Joan Crawford Lecture Series. Crawford, who died on October 5, 2010, had served the College community for more than 30 years. She joined the staff of the fledgling community college in 1972 and worked in many capacities in the decades that followed, including serving as the head of the Humanities Division and Director of Enrollment. After her retirement, Crawford was named Professor Emerita.
"Joan was a teacher and writer who cared about words and how they can move people," said Joan Crawford Lecture Series Coordinator and Professor of English, Jack DuBose. "We offer a wide range of programs in the series, and I think she'd be proud."
The Joan Crawford Lecture Series of presentations are offered free of charge and the general public and community members are invited to attend.
