Exploring Gardens for the Smithsonian
Elizabeth Eggimann ‘18, Environmental Studies and Science, contributed to Community of Gardens, a digital archive kept by the Smithsonian Institution. As part of her senior project, she conducted extensive interviews with the dedicated folks who keep their community gardens thriving, including the William A. Harris Garden and the Joseph Daniel Wilson Memorial Garden, both of which are published on the Community of Gardens website.
Environmental Studies student Brooklyn Flick ’24 shares her experience interning at Sustainable Westchester. “As I move forward in my college career, I have begun to desire a way to put into practice what I have been learning in my classes. Therefore, when the opportunity to work with a company called “Sustainable Westchester” in their Zero Waste division opened up, I knew it sounded exactly right; or Recycle Right as I was later told.”
The Environmental Studies and Science department is hosting a Fall Speaker Series on Environmental Science and Policy. Our kick-off event on September 29 is a virtual webinar by Dr. Susanne Moser about science-practice interaction and communication on climate change resilience.
