Thursday, March 1, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm – A Common Treasury for All: Toward a Deeper History of Environmental Justice

In recent years, environmental justice scholarship has exploded. But virtually every relevant piece of work has understood the history of environmental justice as dating only to the late 20th century. The Harvard University Graduate School of Design Frederick Law Olmsted Lecture on Thursday, March 1 at 6:30 pm in the Gund Hall Piper Auditorium goes back to the 17th century, seeking to trace and analyze the evolution of a positive environmental rights discourse in European and American history. Having established our opposition to environmental injustice, we might want to ask: what exactly are we aiming for, in positive terms? What are the components of environmental justice? Is there any common ground left to stand on? And how might a deeper historical perspective help us answer these questions?

Wednesday, February 21, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm – Our Dynamic Flora Webinar

This New England Wild Flower Society on line class will cover the criteria botanists use to determine whether plants are native to a region or introduced. Research botanist Arthur Haines will explain the shortcomings of each criterion to help explain the need for using suites of criteria. Given that the flora has always been changing (and likely always will), static benchmarks are problematic. The class will also include a brief discussion of global biodiversity and the problem of human-centric viewpoints. $10 for NEWFS members, $13 for nonmembers. Class takes place Wednesday, February 21 at 1 pm. Sign up at http://www.newenglandwild.org/learn/our-programs/live-webinar-our-dynamic-flora
