Nature club field trip

Check out the birds at the Audubon Christmas Bird Count. This bird hunt began in 1900 and continues today as groups divide up a 15-mile circle and count all the birds seen. Many groups will begin or end their day searching for owls, and use the daylight hours to identify raptors, warblers, sparrows, great blue herons, and many other birds. The starting and ending time for each group is decided by the team organizer; generally, it is at least dawn to dusk but that will vary by team. $5. 856-881-9262 or



Moliere farce

The Moliere farce "The Doctor in Spite of Himself," directed by Phillip Graneto, relates the wacky tale of a wife's revenge on her woodcutter husband, Sganarelle. To get back at him, she informs a pair of strangers that her husband is an amazing doctor. The problem is that the only way to entice him to help or even admit that he is a doctor is to beat him mercilessly. The strangers decide to beat up Sganarelle until he agrees to treat a rich man's daughter who has lost her ability to speak. The result is two acts of witty banter, physical comedy and laughter. The play will be held in Tohill Theatre, in Bunce Hall on the Rowan Campus, Route 322 in Glassboro. $10 general admission; $5 students, staff, alumni and seniors. 3 p.m. today. 856-256-4545.
