White Memorial Foundation"Stinkology" with Peter and Barbara Rzasa


80 Whitehall Rd., Litchfield, CT Phone: 860-567-0857.

11:00 A.M., Meet in front of the A.B. Ceder Room, Members: $10.00, Non-members: $15.00, Pre-registration and pre- payment are required. Many hikers notice and are aware of the physical scenery that surrounds them by using their sense of sight — colors of the sky, trees, flowers — the sun shining — rain on stormy days; physical objects — trees, hills, fields, forests, water, birds, animals; through their sense of hearing — birds singing, wind moving through the trees, gurgling brooks; and through the sense of feeling — frigid air, warm sun, humidity. However, not many hikers make full use of their sense of smell when hiking. Peter and Barbara are bound and determined to make you more aware of your environment by experiencing the many fragrances that can be found in our fields and forests.
