Start off your troop year by getting outdoors, learning about nature, helping wildlife and having fun! The red-backed salamander is a slim woodland amphibian that lives under logs and tree limbs on the sanctuary. It breathes through its skin and can be a good indicator of forest health.

Start off your troop year by getting outdoors, learning about nature, helping wildlife and having fun! The red-backed salamander is a slim woodland amphibian that lives under logs and tree limbs on the sanctuary. It breathes through its skin and can be a good indicator of forest health. Help Wachusett Meadow monitor for red-backed salamanders, and other terrestrial amphibians, in this guided citizen science exploration. We’ll walk a coverboard transect and record our findings while learning about the life cycles, habitats, and safe handling of these important creatures. Find out what you can do to help declining amphibian species worldwide. Leader:Kristin Steinmetz, Education Coordinator.
Open to troops and girls with an adult. Adults are free. Workshop space is limited. Register online or call 978-464-2712 to register by phone. <<
I'm glad to see some reporting on the biological effects on individuals especially students in school. There is substantial evidence of serious harm from radiation emanating from routers and other devices; business appears only interested in marketing these devices for schools but has been negligent as far as safety or even educational value.
Currently, there is a ballot initiative (current petition 15-33) to create an expert commission to evaluate and address health and safety risks--this needs support to move forward (see www.meetup.com/healove). The site had additional materials available to help address the issue.
Thank you, Mr. Spero and Ms. Rees for this article! Ashland Public Schools has adopted Best Practices for Mobile Devices to start putting distance between students/staff and the devices/routers/access points in our schools. Senator Karen Spilka has introduced MA S.1222: An Act creating a special commission to study the health impacts of electromagnetic fields. While it may take a while for an outcome from the State, there is much you can do to keep your loved ones safe right now as Ms. Rees explains. I have taken those precautions myself in our home to limit radiation exposure. Those wishing to know more are welcome to look at the in-depth research I've gathered: https://sites.google.com/site/understandingemfs/home. Thank you!
