Every summer, the fields of Lincoln come alive with the ethereal silent sparks of fireflies. Sara Lewis, a long-time Lincoln resident and author of Silent Sparks: The Wondrous World of Fireflies, will lead “Lights in the Night: A Firefly Talk and Walk with Sara Lewis” on Sunday, July 23 starting with a talk at 7:45 p.m. in Town Hall and a firefly walk in the Smith-Andover Field across Lincoln Road at 8:15 p.m. Dress for weather and wear sturdy shoes. Apply any insect repellent before entering the field. Please use red LED flashlights, or regular flashlights can be covered with red cellophane. The rain date for the walk is July at 8:15 p.m.
Lewis, a professor of biology at Tufts University, has given a TED talk and written about firefly conservation for CNN and Undark Magazine. Limited numbers of her book are available at the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust office and at the Lincoln Public Library. This event is co-sponsored with Lincoln’s Conservation Commission.
Join the COA on Tuesday, July 25 for a fascinating day at the Lowell National Historic Park. Find out about the famous Mill Girls, the technology that powered the mills, and how immigrants have contributed to the industrial city. First, you’ll hop a trolley to the Swamp Locks. There you’ll board a canal boat and cruise the Pawtucket Canal, maybe even all the way to the Pawtucket Falls. Then, you’ll have lunch at one of the many ethnic restaurants in the area. Finally, you’ll visit the Boott Cotton Mill Museum and Mill Girls and Immigrants Exhibit. The air-conditioned air-ride bus will leave Donelan’s parking lot at 9:15 a.m., returning at approximately 4 p.m. This trip is rated moderate for physical ability, as there will be some walking and entering/exiting the canal boat entails steep steps. Non-refundable cost, including lunch is $32, and drinks are on your own. This trip is funded by the Hurff Fund, and is therefore open to Lincoln seniors only. To reserve a space, send a check made out to FLCOA/Trips to Donna Rizzo, 22 Blackburnian Road, Lincoln MA 01773. Be sure to include your phone number and email address. Your reservation is complete when your check is received. Questions? Contact Donna at 781-257-5050 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
