COVID-19 and the Hitchcock Center

The Hitchcock Center is offering outdoor, small-group, in-person programs for Fall 2020, during Phase 3 of the Massachusetts reopening plan. Registration is open. And while our building is still closed to the public, we have special resources that you can access until it is safe for us to open again.


 

Registration for Winter Children, Youth and Family Programs Opens Tuesday, December 1

Our emphasis is on providing inquiry-based environmental and outdoor education programs for small groups, typically made up of no more than 10–12 individuals. Take a look at our program offerings…

Giving Tuesday! You Can Help at This Crucial Time!

The Hitchcock Center is providing COVID-safe environmental education to children, families, teachers and other community members. To support this programming we need to raise $60,000 on this day of giving. Can you make a donation to help?

Here’s the November 28 Earth Matters, by regular contributor Christine Hatch. She continues the story of restoring a longtime cranberry bog to the wetland that was present before that. High-technology remote sensing and mapping enabled the project to locate groundwater sources that feed the wetland, even in a drought.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait a few days and go to the Hitchcock Center website, where you’ll find the article on the home page.
