Merry Lea to host nature poetry reading

Mary Linton

Poet and wetland ecologist Dr. Mary Linton has spent a lifetime steeped in the natural world. She’s gone from Midwestern farm girl to scientist, but she’s always believed that a day mucking about a fertile wetland could not be better spent. Linton will share her poetry at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 at Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College, Wolf Lake, Ind.

From the basement below the Leaf Raker to on stage in Japan, the band Lotus has emerged from humble beginnings to achieve great success. The instrumental electronic jam band, which splits time between Philadelphia, Pa. and Denver, Colo., continues to garner attention as they have released nine albums and have toured across the United States and Japan. It all began at Goshen College for two of Lotus’ founding members.
