Wednesday, June 27, 7:30 pm – Encouraging Healthy Bird Population In Massachusetts

Birds are not only winged harbingers of spring, they are harbingers of healthy ecosystems. 2018 is the ‘Year of the Bird’ and new research exposes the critical role that farmland and other diverse habitats provide for birdlife. In New England, birds associated with grass- and shrublands represent some of the most treasured wildlife in Massachusetts, but they are also some of the most imperiled and rapidly declining bird groups. Most of these birds depend significantly on privately-owned lands, agricultural landscapes, and the efforts of individual landowners in order to survive.

Through April, 2019 – Alicja Kwade: TunnelTeller

Berlin-based contemporary artist Alicja Kwade (b.1979, Poland) has long been engaged with value systems, philosophical questions about the essence of reality, and with attempting to examine, if not resolve, issues of inherently subjective concepts such as space and time. In her sculptures, as well as installations, photographs, and films, Kwade occupies herself with the structural properties of everyday objects and questioning the veracity of matter, revealing possibilities for alternate realities, while examining social agreements and supposed truths.

    Glenda Jackson - a True Inspiration
    Glenda Jackson, the brilliant British actress, is 82 years old. Yet despite being an octogenarian, she won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a play Sunday night. Performing on the stage on Broadway is grueling work - eight shows a week - for anyone, let alone a person who is well beyond what usually is full retirement age (65 years old) for most of us.

Celebrating Pride in Our Communities

Every June, our communities come together to celebrate Pride Month, a tradition that grows stronger every year. In 1989, Massachusetts became the second state to pass a law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. In 2004, Massachusetts became the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry. Our state has always been a national leader on defending LGBTQ rights, and I’m proud of our communities’ work and reputation as a place that promotes inclusion and acceptance.

Friday, June 22 or Saturday, June 23, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm – In the Groves: A Summer Solstice Journey

Join the Arnold Arboretum on your choice of two dates, June 22 or 23, for an enchanting evening of Tree Myths, Songs and Summer Solstice Legends. Diane Edgecomb, storyteller, and Margot Chamberlain, Celtic harpist, spin tales of the human connection with trees and the deep meaning we have assigned to them through the ages. This unique performance, designed specifically for the Arnold Arboretum, travels through the Arboretum with story and music. Each story is told under a different tree or among a unique collection of Arboretum plants. The program begins under a grand Cedar of Lebanon, moves into the rosaceous collection, to the oaks of Bussey Hill, then onward to Hemlock Hill, culminating with the haunting Czech legend “The Wild Woman of the Birch Grove” told amid the birches at sunset. Appropriate for adults and for children twelve years and above. Bring a cushion to sit on if you wish. Registrants will walk approximately two miles on and off trails on uneven terrain. The performance takes place rain or shine. In the event of rain, it will be held in the Hunnewell Building lecture hall. Photo by Pamela Ruby Russell. Register early for this popular event. Fee $20 per person through June 15; $25 per person after June 15. Register at http://my.arboretum.harvard.edu
