“A Journey That Never Ends: John Hay’s 'The Run'”

The John Hay Estate Summer Luncheon Series: Outdoor Film Screening and Q&A

Join us for a screening of “A Journey That Never Ends,” a film honoring the environmentalist and nature writer John Hay.

Based on his book "The Run," originally published in 1959, this film follows John Hay as he revisits Stony Brook in Brewster, Massachusetts to observe the amazing annual run of the schools of alewife returning from the sea to spawn in freshwater.

“Whether the migration of animals seems random, or with definite intent, it leads across the earth….As a result of a respectful regard for other animals we may find that we are being led onto traveled ways that were once invisible to us, and in their deep alliance with natural forces we find a new depth in ourselves.”

After the film, we will enjoy a Q & A with Dave Anderson, Senior Educator from the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.
