The Women’s Forum of Litchfield welcomes Gerri Griswold to speak on the subject “Iceland Through my Heart” at the Litchfield Community Center, 421 Bantam Road, Litchfield, CT on Thursday, March 7, beginning at 2:30pm.
Gerri Griswold is Director of Administration and Development at The White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield, Connecticut. She has handled bats for twenty-seven years as a wildlife rehabilitator and
educator and is licensed by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the United States Department of Agriculture to keep and exhibit non releasable bats and more recently, porcupines for education.
Over the years Griswold and her bats have delivered hundreds of programs
to libraries, classrooms, Scout troops and organizations like the
National Park Service and the Yale Peabody Museum. They have appeared on
the cover of The Weekly Reader and produced a segment about bats for The
Late Show with David Letterman. Griswold was featured in “Seasons of
Connecticut” by Diane Smith, published by Globe Pequot Press, released
in June 2010. Griswold also serves as the morning voice of traffic on
WTIC AM and WZMX FM. Griswold began traveling to Iceland in 2002 when
the Elves and Hidden People called her to the Land of Fire and Ice.
Since then she has visited Iceland 49 times. In 2010 she launched a
travel company, Krummi Travel LLC, which takes small groups of
extraordinary adults on extraordinary trips to Iceland.
The event will be open to non-Forum members with a $10 fee at the door,
which includes a High Tea reception. The contacts for more information
are 860-567-3966 and womensforumoflitchfield.org.
