The Roger Tory Peterson Institute will host an evening featuring “The Far Side of Relationships,” presented by special guest Dr. Wayne Gall, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14.

The event is free and open to the public, though donations are appreciated.

The evening starts at 6:30 p.m. with complimentary wine and chocolate and time to enjoy the magnificent artwork of Roger Tory Peterson on display at the institute.
