A Few Days in the Galapagos Islands (Virtual Presentation)
Sunday, February 21, 2021
7:00-8:00 pm

Situated in the Pacific Ocean some 600 miles from the South American continent, the nineteen Galapagos Islands and the surrounding marine reserve have been called a unique “living museum and showcase of evolution.” We will explore a small portion of the archipelago, primarily around Santa Cruz, and see many of the unique species that inspired Darwin in 1835. Travel vicariously through wildlife photographer Garry Kessler’s stunning photos, which he took on his “bucket list” trip there in 2018. Login at or through the link on the WCLT website

Westborough Wildflower Hunt
March-June 2021

Help WCLT inventory the wildflowers on our properties by taking part in this fun scavenger hunt! Check WCLT’s Facebook page every month, where we will post pictures of wildflowers that bloom that month. If you see those flowers on WCLT properties, comment with a picture and include where you saw it. Have fun and learn to identify local wildflowers at the same time! Please, absolutely no picking flowers or damaging plants!
