NISKAYUNA — The Kelly Adirondack Center, 897 St. David’s Lane, announces a pair of programs on Friday, Sept. 21.

– “Stories Honoring the Earth” at 1 p.m. — rain or shine.

Storytellers Claire Nolan and Eileen Egan Mack will share tales of trees, tales of people and trees, birds, and flowers, stories to help open eyes, hearts and ears to the wonders of the natural world. “Some of them may even be true,” says Nolan. The pair will tell stories solo but also in tandem.

If the weather on the vernal equinox cooperates, the event will be held in the amphitheater behind the KAC, the perfect setting in which to appreciate a rainbow of stories.

– “From the Adirondacks to Iceland” with photographer Manny Palacios at 7 p.m.
This talk will focus on the creative process and how to approach photography locations from the backyard to Iceland.

“I love sharing my experiences and vision with my audience,” says Palacios. “My talk will take you through my journey and make you walk with me through the process of making my images from visualization to execution.”

Both events are free and open to the public. Call 518-388-7000 for more information.
