A Shepaug Libraries Event

Hosted by the Gunn Library

In collaboration with the Hickory Stick Bookshop, we are pleased to welcome Wendy Gorton for a virtual author talk on her latest book 50 Hikes With Kids: New England. Gorton will share the best hikes for little legs in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont and help parents and caregivers spark a love of nature in childhood and beyond. Gorton will discuss technology usage on the trail and highlight the best little adventures just outside your door.

Wendy Gorton holds a master’s degree in learning technologies and is a former classroom teacher. As part of her quest to bring science education alive, she worked as a National Geographic Fellow in Australia researching Tasmanian devils, a PolarTREC teacher researcher in archaeology in Alaska, an Earthwatch teacher fellow in the Bahamas and New Orleans, and a GoNorth! teacher explorer studying climate change via dogsled in Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Today, she is a global education consultant who has traveled to more than fifty countries to design programs, build communities, and train other educators to do the same.
