Historians Patricia M. Salmon and Tina Kaasmann will lead the program.
Where: Kaasmann House, 4485 Hylan Blvd., Eltingville, Staten Island
There is no charge for this event.
During an indoor slide show and outdoor chat around a cozy fire, we will celebrate the life and efforts of Staten Island legend Carlton Beil. Mentored by naturalist, entomologist, and historian William T. Davis as a youth, Mr. Beil went on to become a curator at the Staten Island Museum and an education specialist at the American Museum of Natural History. During his retirement, he taught thousands of people at the William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge, Clay Pit Ponds State Park, Blue Heron Park, and other open spaces on Staten Island. Discover Carlton’s legacy, including how he and his beloved wife, Louise, saved the circa 1685 Olmsted-Beil House.
Refreshments will be provided.
This program is geared for adults.
