Thursday, June 28th, 6-8pm

Maynard Ecology Center, basement of Neville Place, 650 Concord Ave.

What kind of plants grow in the ponds at Fresh Pond Reservation? Come find out with the Massachusetts Weed Watchers, a program from the Department of Conservation and Recreation for monitoring non-native aquatic species. Members of the DCR will discuss how exotic species got into the ponds in the first place, methods of dispersal, and will provide guidance on performing bi-weekly monitoring and completing plant surveys. Then, the class will focus on identifying a variety of native and non-native species.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own samples. The DCR will teach us how to use a dichotomous key so that we can go out to our ponds and identify the plants there. We will be scheduling follow-up programs so that we can learn more about the plant life in our ponds and monitor them over time. It would be great if participants volunteer for some monitoring programs, but further involvement is not a requirement for this program. This evening's program will be held indoors.

Limit: 15 Participants

You will receive important information on parking when you register: E-mail Barbara Strell at or call (617) 349-4793 and leave your name and phone number.

Offered by Friends of Fresh Pond Reservation.

Call to artists - Brooks Estate Picnic Art Exhibit and Sale - June 22, 2007

The Medford-Brooks Estate Land Trust (M-BELT) is pleased to once again invite local artists to exhibit and sell their works at the annual Brooks Estate Picnic and Art Exhibit. This year's picnic will be held on Saturday, July 7 from 12:00 to 3:00pm at the Shepherd Brooks Manor yard, and the art exhibit will be inside the Manor.
Since it is usually hot on picnic day, the Manor interior is more comfortable, and we will have the two front rooms available, for plenty of space and good natural light. Bring your own table, we can provide chairs.

Basic picnic food will be provided - hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, soft drinks. Please feel free to bring a salad, snack, or dessert item to share, but it is not required. This event is free and open to everyone. Guided tours of the Manor will start around 1:00, but the artists' area will be open for the entire 3 hours.
Since there will be other artists there and the picnic is right outside the Manor, you will not be required to stay with your exhibit for the entire time. We want you to be able to enjoy the picnic! Set up starts at 10:00 and all exhibits must be in place by 11:00. Break down will start at 3:00 and end by 4:00.

On picnic day, you may drive up to the Manor to drop off materials, but due to space limitations you should then park on any side street off Grove Street and walk into the Estate from the large green gate just past Oak Grove Cemetery. Please do not park in the Cemetery.

Every effort will be made to accommodate all who wish to exhibit, but ideally we only have room for 10 artists. In lieu of a registration fee, we ask each artist to donate a small item for the Picnic Raffle. Your name and item will be listed on a display board at the picnic. If you have never been to the Estate, please check our website at If you are interested in exhibiting or need more details, the contact person is Audrey - Email her at or call 781-395-0887 and leave a message.

A small number of intrepid volunteers have been working with Ranger Jean Rogers and Elizabeth Wylde to remove garlic mustard and other invasive plants from the recently planted areas of the Northeast Sector, the bioswales, the Weir Meadow, and other vulnerable areas of the Reservation. Although progress has been made, there is always more to be done.

Would you like to come work with us? We will be happy to teach you how to recognize the plants and we will work along side you. This is a task that can be accomplished a couple of hours at a time from now through the fall. Any amount of time--once or a series of volunteer days would make a real impact.

E-mail Elizabeth at or call Jean at 617-349-4793 to let us know when you are available. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.

LynnArts Kids Summer Camp - July 23 - August 17, 2007

"e", the Environmental Learning and ActionCenter Comes to LynnArts

July 23-27 9:30am -2:30 pm

August 13-17 9:30am -2:30 pm

E-inc, the Environmental Learning and ActionCenter recently featured on WBZ-TV will make its first appearance in Lynn this summer through a partnership with LynnArts inc. during the LynnArts Kids summer camp. The organization, known simply as 'e', pairs science education with community action to inspire environmental change in urban communities.

The 'e' staff will be working with the LynnArts summer campers during the third week of LynnArts three week art camp sessions. Amongst other scientific explorations, participants will learn about the importance of the South American Rainforests through the creation of a rainforest art installation to be presented to the community on the last day of each session.

Steve Negrón, Director of Special Events and Programs at LynnArts was contacted by Dr. Ricky Stern, the Founder and Director of 'e' who was looking to expand the Cambridge based organization's reach into surrounding communities.

"Dr. Stern contacted us and thought that Lynn would be a perfect site to bring the environmental program to because it's an urban environment. We are thrilled to have 'e' inc. make its debut in Lynn here at LynnArts. The time is now for kids to be aware of our impact on the environment. This is the kind of experience that makes learning about the environment fun, personal and creative."

Each year the LynnArts summer camp seeks to offer new and innovative programs for the children of the Greater Lynn community. Along with the 'e' program, LynnArts also offers visual and performance art opportunities during its summer camp programs. The LynnArts Summer camps run from July 9 through August 17. Spaces are still available For more information, visit or call 781-598-5244. For more information about 'e' visit their website at

Gallery hours are Tues, Wed., Fri, Sat 10 am - 4 pm and Thurs, 10am - 7 pm. For directions call LynnArts, call 781-598-5244 or visit their website,
