Participants will meet in the parking lot at Golden Living Center – Lexington, at 840 Emerson Gardens Rd. (off Maple Street) in East Lexington. The parking lot is on the right side of the facility, and drivers should park at the far end.

These small, easily overlooked butterflies are found in many parts of the United States and Canada. Since these species overwinter in the chrysalis stage, their lives as adults begin butterflies. If time permits, additional insects will be sought at adjacent Infinity Pond, a certified vernal pool.

People of all ages are welcome; children must be with an adult.  Please sign up for the walk in advance, preferably by email (tom@whelanphoto.com) or phone (781-915-9988). Walk Leader, Tom Whelan, will notify those who sign up if the weather requires cancelling the event.

Meet at the Allen Street entrance to Dunback Meadow. In early May we are in the midst of several weeks of migration as many species of birds quickly head north to their breeding grounds as well as the many birds who come to this area to spend the summer. In addition, we may find some of our residential birds, such as woodpeckers and hawks.

Although the ground is slightly rough, the pace is slow so the walk is accessible to most. Children with adults and beginners are welcome. We will enjoy a varied habitat, including mixed woods, open fields, and a stream. Bring binoculars if you have them.  Boots are recommended if there has been rain recently. Rain or lightning will cancel the walk.

 Talk by renowned environmentalist/economist Lester Brown
Thursday, May 7, 7:30 pm
Clarke Middle School Auditorium, Lexington

 LexGWAC will be honored to welcome pioneer environmental economist Lester Brown on Thursday, May 7 at 7:30 pm at Clarke Middle School Auditorium.   Please join us for an evening of wisdom and inspiration as he discusses his new book:

 The Great Transition Shifting from Fossil Fuels to Solar and Wind Energy

 After half a century of working on global environmental issues, Lester Brown, who pioneered the concept of sustainable development and of looking at global issues through an interdisciplinary lens, is retiring.

 His latest, and last, book describes the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy that is under way.

 The Great Transition details the accelerating pace of this global energy revolution. As many countries become less enamored with coal and nuclear power, they are embracing an array of clean, renewable energies. Whereas solar energy projects were once small-scale, largely designed for residential use, energy investors are now building utility-scale solar projects. Strides are being made: some of the huge wind farm complexes under construction in China will each produce as much electricity as several nuclear power plants, and an electrified transport system supplemented by the use of bicycles could reshape the way we think about mobility.

Meet at 116 Vine Street; call if you are lost. Check out the spring warbler migration in the Lower Vine Brook conservation area. Warblers are small, beautiful tropical birds that come north to breed. Many different species of warbler stop off in this sheltered area on their way to the forests in northern New England and Canada. Some stay, but as trees leaf they are more difficult to see. In the spring, depending on the weather and the foliage, you can sometimes find a dozen species in a morning.

Children with adults are welcome. Bring warm clothes, boots if it’s wet, binoculars, and a bird book. No dogs. More than light rain or lightning will cancel the event.  If the weather is uncertain call the leader.

Grab your pick axe and join your fellow Minecraftians for a week of game design, world creation, exploration, and modding madness. Campers will contribute to and create unique and amazing worlds that can be taken home and played on a personal Minecraft account. 

The virtual world combines with the physical when participants test game mechanics in the real world (an outdoor game of capture the flag or a scavenger hunt anyone?) and craft their own Minecraft gear using customized paper craft, perler beads, and other supplies.
