Brio's Intermediate ASL Course
Ali is back teaching the Intermediate Course in ASL (American Sign Language) at our new location in Winchester. She will take you to the next step in learning this visual expressive language this summer. This 10 Week course is for people who have basic understanding of ASL. The course includes 10 classes, and would be best to take all the classes, or at least try to start within the first 3 classes. The course is free, but we are asking for a small donation of $5  each or $50 for the ten classes to help sustain the program, if you can afford it. We have had all ages in our classes, from 10 to 60 years old and all abilities.No class on Memorial Day - May 27th. Ali Schmalenberger is a state-certified ASL teacher and interpreter. She is involved in the local deaf community, always expanding her knowledge of the culture and language. She has a Master of Education in Mathematics and has tutored and taught in a variety of subjects since 2004, but tends to focus on Mathematics and Science. She has found her passion for teaching and is eager to share any knowledge she can with the community.

Fells' Biobliss » Botany & Phenology at Long Pond
Join us for a lovely Botany & Phenology walk in the Fells!  This is part of our effort to collect data about the impact of climate change on the synchronicity of fauna and flora phenophases (i.e., observable stages or phases in the annual life cycle of a plant or animal that can be defined by a start and end point). This is a great way opportunity to learn how to be alert and in tune with our environment, and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles.  If we pass by our study sites in that area, we'll also record information following nationally standardized phenology protocols (and fed to shared global platforms).  Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors.ⓘ Details & Registration: This is an RSVP event. If you intend to come, we ask that you let us know, so that we can communicate with you about what to wear and what to bring, as well as to be able to inform you if there is any change plan due to weather and other reasons. Register here today. Thanks!✉ For any question, you can contact Laura & Claire at citizenscience@earthwiseaware.orgⓘ About EwA Citizen Science Programs » https://tinyurl.com/ewa-citizen-science$ Free with a value: This event is free, still we need your support.

Pollinator, Bird & Plant Monitoring at The Fells
We welcome you to take a peep and/or help us gathering science field information relating to plants, birds and insects at the Fells. At the end, it's likely you'll love it so much, that you'll want to join our group of citizen scientists. In the course of 3+ hours we survey 5 sites (4 plant phenology sites + 1 pollinator monitoring site). We also monitor bird activities at 2 ponds. We'll record information following nationally standardized phenology and biodiversity protocols (and fed to shared global platforms). Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors.⚠️ Hiking pace between sites: Fast. We'll start with our Long Pond sites then move to the 90mm site, and finish with our Bellevue sites. Between sites, we will hike relatively fast yet very quietly, on the look out for any kind of signs. This is a great way opportunity to learn how to be alert and in tune with our environment, and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles.ⓘ Details & Registration: This is an RSVP event.

Participants provide experimental data and facilities for researchers, raise new questions and co-create a new scientific culture. While adding value, volunteers acquire new learning and skills, and deeper understanding of the scientific work in an appealing way. As a result of this open, networked and trans-disciplinary scenario, science-society-policy interactions are improved leading to a more democratic research based on evidence-informed decision making.꙳ EwA Phenology monitoring is part of our effort to collect information about the impact of climate change on the synchronicity of fauna and flora phenophases (i.e., observable stages or phases in the annual life cycle of a plant or animal that can be defined by a start and end point). ꙳ EwA's Pollinator Survey and Bird Monitoring are intended to help local entomologists and global scientists. This kind of data is lacking, and the type of information we record helps filling this data gap. We feed the info to different global databases that are tracking species richness, population abundance and pollinator and bird phenophases. This is much needed scientific effort to understand the collapse of insect populations -that is being been observed all over the world in the past few years. The data is critical to help understand the implications on avian population, other fauna at large, on our own species (e.g., food security).#nature #ecology #biodiversity #phenology #conservation #citizenScience #science

Art at the Farm

Come to Wright-Locke Farm in Winchester for an afternoon of plant-based art: botanical drawing, tie-dye and pottery! Enjoy a walk on our trails or say hello to our goats and chickens. Open to artists of all ages.

We will be creating art projects that focus on the organic fruits and vegetables grown at Wright-Locke Farm, taking advantage of our 20 acres of open space: learning to make botanical drawings of farm-grown produce; tie-dying shirts using plant-based dyes, and trying out pottery with our friends from POW! Pots on Wheels.

Parking is available at 82 Ridge Street and at Mullen Field (42 Lockeland Road). Activities will happen rain or shine and be both inside and outside — please come dressed for the weather!
