FROM THE CENTER FOR SUSTAINABILITY

On Friday, May 12th all students, faculty and staff joined in a celebration of the Bird Sanctuary in the Atrium. A huge shout-out of thanks to all the faculty, staff, students, parents, alumnae, and community members who have been a part of bringing this project to life.  There are too many to list here, and it couldn't have happened without this tremendous showing of support.

If you haven't yet been out to walk through the Bird Sanctuary, it is worth a visit.  The first section of prairie grass is starting to sprout, the bird feeders are up, and most of the over 200 perennials that we planted in the fall are emerging from the winter in good shape.  If you want a guided tour of the space, please let Torrey McMillan (tmcmillan@hb.edu) know, as she is always excited to show people around.
