Is Mount Holyoke intriguing to you or dear to your heart? 

If so, you are not alone. People have been drawn its summit for centuries. 

 How and why has this mountain become so

important to so many people past and present? 

 Based on Danielle Raad’s 2021 doctoral dissertation, her talk brings

it all down to earth and is intended for a general audience. Dr. Raad

examines aspects of the mountain that engage visitors - the view,

the natural environment, history, and the Summit House. 

Free and sponsored by the
Friends of the Mount Holyoke Range.  

Preceded by a 6:00 p.m. Potluck Supper and a 7:00 p.m. Annual Meeting.
