Each February and March BRPA presents a lecture series delving into topics that represent our vision for the hills, It's usually your chance to share the warmth of coffee, snacks and talks provided by excellent speakers, often stressing themes pertaining to our upcoming work on the landscape. Once again this year we've had to move to virtual fellowship that drives away winter's darkness and chill. Please join us as we try to capture that spirit for our 2022 pandemic offering.
