I am writing this on a weirdly warm and sunny November day in New Hampshire….the temperature is 75-degrees outside. I would love it except that it is a sign of climate change, for sure. With the COP27 Climate Summit getting underway in Egypt, I assume that regardless of our individual political persuasion, we are all hoping for progress toward recognition of and decisive action on the problem.
A few days ago, I was a guest at a reception in the newly constructed Global Flora at Wellesley. Part of the new Science Center complex, this extraordinary facility takes the concept of a “greenhouse” to a new level of sustainability in two major spaces that replicate major climate zones. The design is dramatic, the interior space breathtaking with soaring heights and winding display areas. While Global Flora will be open to the public, five new greenhouses have been constructed adjoining the new Science Center exclusively for faculty and student course work and research.
As always, Wellesley is out in front leading the way in understanding and demonstrating practices to help us adapt to our changing world. Google: Wellesley College Global Flora for more information and photos.
Also, on this website you’ll find a brief report of two very successful mini-reunions: New York and Munger have done it – now it’s your turn!? Contact Maya McGrath Pearcy for assistance and ideas. email@example.com; 847-482-0651.
Stay well, and stay in touch with your website and class officers.
All best for the holiday season.
