Illuminating the Value of Dark Skies
Wednesday, April 7, 6 p.m.
Artificial light at night disrupts wildlife, impacts human health, wastes money and energy, contributes to climate change and blocks your view of the universe. Join the Peconic Land Trust for a conversation with Susan Harder, New York representative to the International Dark Sky Association, and learn how and why to safely light the night while protecting wildlife, our health and our view of the stars in the sky. Zoom registration is free but required.
A Sky Full of Poems
Wednesday, April 7, 7 p.m.
Hamptons Observatory and Guild Hall present A Sky Full of Poems with Dava Sobel, directed by Josh Gladstone. The skies above have moved us to explore, imagine and express ourselves throughout history, so it’s not surprising that such experiences have been eloquently, and sometimes humorously, expressed by poets. In this virtual performance, a trio of gifted actors—Nehassaiu deGannes, Laura Hix and Isaac Klein—will recite a selection of celestially-inspired poems, which will be accompanied by related visuals.
Virtual Tai Chi

Join John Turnbull every Thursday at noon for a relaxing hour of Tai Chi with the Hampton Library. Awaken your senses and strengthen your body in this enriching virtual class. Zoom registration is free but required.
