The Friends of Flax Pond will hold the first presentation of its 13th annual Winter Lecture series on Sunday, Jan. 31, at the Childs Mansion, 19 Shore Dr., Setauket, at 3 p.m. Guest speaker will be Grace Scalzo, who will share her love of the outdoors with an innovative presentation of her photography of local birds. An avid nature photographer whose images have received numerous awards, Scalzo will also hold a book signing at the end of the event.

The lecture will be moderated by Stony Brook University distinguished service professor, Malcolm Bowman. Light refreshments will be served. There is no cost to attend but donations are gratefully accepted.

Future lectures in the series are scheduled for Feb. 21 and March 20 followed by an outdoor activity in early May.
