Early Spring: Henry Thoreau and Climate Change
Early Spring: Henry Thoreau and Climate Change, a ground-breaking exhibition at the Concord Museum from April 12 through September 15, 2013, explores three centuries of careful observation of seasonal natural phenomena in Concord, a pool of data on the relationship between climate and biology that is essentially without parallel in North America. The exhibition also provides an extraordinary opportunity to examine the Concord Museum’s renowned Thoreau collection that includes the desk on which Thoreau wrote Walden, together with examples of his original field notes, journal recordings, seasonal charts, and botanical specimens. This material has never before been exhibited together.
Spring is in the air and so are beautiful butterflies on May 28 at 10 a.m. at Acton’s Children’s Discovery Museum! At this program sponsored by MEFA’s U. Fund and Fidelity Investments, children can create their own special butterfly to take home.
