Looking for a new place to stroll on a warm summer evening? Come hear about the hidden (and some un-hidden) walking trails of Plymouth with author Frank Werny, a former chemical engineer turned leading authority on local hiking. Frank has authored two books on local walking and hiking trails- Great Walks and Hike Plymouth! Books will be for sale at the event, and Frank will be signing books after his lecture. Bring a lunch or buy one at our Patuxet Café. Discussion starts promptly at noon in the Accomack Building.
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:Frank Werny was born in Germany and emigrated to the U.S. in 1953. He received his BS from the University of Puget Sound and a PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Hawaii. Frank has lived in Germany, the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, Delaware and Pennsylvania. He retired after a career in chemical research and now enjoys retirement living with his wife Dorothy in the Pinehills of Plymouth. He spends his time hiking, traveling, and visiting family and grandchildren all over the country. Frank has explored over 70 hikes over a period of 7 years in Plymouth, Duxbury, Pembroke, Sagamore, Sandwich and Wareham, and published a full color book detailing his favorites. For each hike, the book gives directions with a GPS address, features, difficulty, instructions and a Google map with the hike overlaid. Many of the hike descriptions also include historical or descriptive background material on the features of that particular hike. Frank continues to explore new hiking trails and paths and plans to update future revisions of his book with his discoveries
