Hitchcock Center for the Environment

Hitchcock Center programs are designed to use the study of science and nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements, as a means to provide creative inspiration to solve human problems sustainably. Our programs serve to develop a continuum of competencies that begin at the earliest, most formative years and progress through a process of lifelong learning to engender a greater understanding of the interdependence of the environment, economy, and social issues. Our approach to education uses the environment as classroom and defines place at a variety of scales - the schoolyard, the backyard, the neighborhood, the park, the farm, the town, the forest, the pond, the mountains, and the watershed. In these settings, the Hitchcock Center helps thousands of children and adults see and understand the impacts of our actions. Through our programs, we make connections to where our food comes from and where our waste goes. We help people understand our intimate relationship with the critical life-sustaining processes that support us.

Imagine, just for fun, that you were blindfolded and taken to a place you didn’t know, then had your blindfold taken off and were left there to figure out where you were. In the June 16 Earth Matters, contributor David Spector carries this thought experiment through - identifying the place and the time of year by identifying the species he sees and hears around him.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait until Monday or Tuesday and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page.

Bistro 63 took home the #BattleoftheBotanicals 2017 trophy! Congrats Joe, Rasif, and RJ on using asparagus to take home the crown! Hope & Olive and Osteria Vespa were also crowd favorites, voted into our top 3.

Thank you to all of our amazing and talented teams from 30Boltwood, The Alvah Stone, Five Eyed Fox, and Johnny's Tavern.
