Wednesday, July 18, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm – Tree Health Assessment

Jerry Bond, Urban Forestry Consultant, Urban Forest Analytics LLC, will lead Arnold Arboretum attendees through a new field protocol for obtaining quick and reliable estimates of tree health, a critical component of tree condition. He will introduce his process of observation, with emphasis on producing repeatable and useful results. After practicing techniques in the field, he will present the way field observations can be interpreted and transformed into reliable information for communicating to clients. Jerry will also stress understanding the limits of observation in order to guard against making assumptions. A second outdoor session will test real-world application of these methods. He will explain the biological foundation for his field protocol and end the program with the day-to-day utility of this approach within various work contexts. This class is based on the book, Urban Tree Health: A Practical and Precise Estimation Method, by Jerry Bond, published in 2012. Lunch will be provided. $150.

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.
