Maple Tapping Workshop

Join the Landscape Lab agroforestry team on Friday, Feb 22nd to set our taps for the maple sugaring season! We’ll run through some winter tree ID, do a quick tour of the sugarbush, and make sure everyone gets to try their hand at tapping trees. No prior knowledge or experience required, just bring your inquiring mind and your sweet tooth. Get in touch to join the ranks of the Saplings and help out with sugaring this season. We’ll be collecting sap several times a week, as well as hosting campfires at the farm to boil down our sap into syrup.

West Campus History of Scientific Instruments tour

Did you know that West Campus has a large collection of historic scientific instruments from the Peabody Museum of Natural History? Just because modern technologies made these instruments obsolete, it doesn’t mean these historic instruments aren’t cool to learn about! In fact, West Campus Collection Studies Center hosts a wide variety of well preserved instruments from microscopic glass slides to gyroscopes to one of the oldest Macintosh. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to get a hands-on experience of operating some of the instruments yourself!
