He is the recipient of three Audie Awards (the industry’s equivalent of an Oscar) for excellence in audio book narration, and his 40-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie award for best performance Off-Broadway, and frequent television appearances.

When there is a second full moon in the same month it is called a blue moon. Join us for a moonlit walk along a trail created by an Eagle Scout and then enjoy s’mores and stories. This Land Trust property is the perfect spot to appreciate a blue moon! As always, children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
