Friday, October 14, 12:00 p.m.
Professors Andy Oguma & Melanie Trecek-King
Have you ever wondered why Massasoit planted a wildflower meadow? Or just what is a riparian buffer or a bioswale? Or what species are actually planted in those gardens around campus? Now you can find out!
We are excited to be debuting our new sustainable-gardens-self-guided-tour on the Brockton campus! Professors Oguma and Trecek-King will lead us on the tour, using the route and pamphlets developed by Professor Oguma. These pamphlets will be made available on an ongoing basis for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to tour the gardens themselves and gain a greater understanding of the plantings and their environmental benefits.
Tour starts in Louison Board Room (Student Center) at noon.
