Summer may be winding down, but with the changing of the seasons comes an exciting collection of Road Scholar educational adventures that combine history, culture and arts with autumn’s natural beauty.
Participants will explore picturesque countrysides and learn about the history and culture that are the foundation of the American experience. Programs feature lectures by local historians, naturalists and other experts.
New adventures this fall include a 10-night journey, On the Road: Autumn in New England, through the backroads of New England to experience the stunning foliage of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont. Here are some other fall programs we’re excited to offer:
Celebrating the Autumn Tapestry and History of New Hampshire Explore the incredible beauty of southern New Hampshire while learning its history and exploring the autumn tapestry in the Monadnock region.
Fall Landscapes: Painting and Drawing in Rural New England Foliage, golden meadows, farms, woodlands, brooks and ponds — New England’s autumn splendor is a painter’s delight. For all art aficionados and lovers of nature, work “en plein air” with your medium of choice — acrylics, watercolors, pastels or oils.
The Nature of Vermont: Walking and Canoeing in the Northeast Kingdom Inhabited for 11,000 years and covered in dense boreal, maple, beech and upland conifer forests, the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is a spectacular spot for enjoying the splendors of New England fall foliage.
