Brett Kelley will present “We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Lamp: A Mothman Retrospective” followed by Bridget Likely’s talk “Actually, You Can Get There From Here – Exploring the New England National Scenic Trail”.

“We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Lamp: A Mothman Retrospective” by Brett Kelley
Richard Gere, a salesman, and a cryptid walk into Pointe Pleasant West Virginia, stop me if you’ve heard this one before! Local Nerd Nite supporter Brett Kelley will recount the reports and incidents that created the cryptozoological phenomenon now known as The Mothman sightings.

Brett Kelley is a Northampton-Based Creative and Educator whose studies sometime drift into the weird and bizarre. He claims to drink and know things, which he agrees is kind of a cop-out statement to make in a bio.

“Actually, You Can Get There From Here – Exploring the New England National Scenic Trail” by Bridget Likely
The Pioneer Valley is home to the youngest of America’s eleven nationally designated, long-distance hiking trails. Nearly two million people live within ten miles of the aptly named ‘New England Trail’, but too few of them are aware it even exists, and that they’re only a short drive away from an adventure.

Get yourself in the know and come learn the New England Trail’s history, where exactly this 215-mile footpath can take you, and what there is to see and do along the way.

Bridget Likely is the New England National Scenic Trail Coordinator. In this role, she works towards the protection, promotion, and stewardship of the New England National Scenic Trail in Massachusetts.
