Mandarin Museum & Historical Society Invites You Third Thursday Lecture Via a virtual ZOOM meeting August 19, 2021 at 7 PM The Third Thursday Lecture for August 19, 2021 will be via ZOOM and will feature a special speaker who will be sharing with us all the way from the beautiful hills of North Carolina. The topic will be “William Bartram in Northern Florida.” Brent Martin has been a conservationist and educator for most of his life and is considered an expert on the Bartrams. Currently he serves as the Executive Director of the Blue Ridge Bartram Trail Conservancy (http://www.blueridgebartram.org) and is a co-owner, with his wife Angela, of a Southern Appalachian guide service, “Alarka Expeditions” (www.alarkaexpeditions.com). Prior to his work at the conservancy, he was Southern Appalachian Regional Director of the Wilderness Society. He is also a poet and an author. Mr. Martin will discuss William Bartram's travels through northern Florida and the St. John's River valley during the 1760's with his father, as well as time spent exploring there in the 1770's. Bartram loved the St. John's River, and this discussion will include the subjects of Native American customs and beliefs he observed, the plant and animal world, and his artistic renderings of the area. We will also explore the internal landscape of Bartram - his motivations and beliefs, and his unique perspective on the American landscape.
