Spring is the time for frogs (and salamanders!) to lay eggs in pools and ponds. We'll investigate frogs, listen for their songs, and discover their babies swimming around. For families with children ages 0-7. Registration required. Members $12, Nonmembers $15. >>
As the weather warms we all start hearing and seeing different birds come out. In this program geared to kids there will be a short indoor introduction and then a short walk. We will learn how to identify common Massachusetts birds and transform into birds to play and learn about the life of a bird along its migration route. Best for kids over 4 years old; siblings welcome. Please RSVP with Tim >>
As the days warm, more and more insects make their presence felt and heard.

For families with children ages 4-11. Registration required. Adults Free; Children: Members $5, Nonmembers $7. >>
Early spring is a great time at Habitat—the snow has melted, the vernal pool is in full swing with the sounds of frogs, burrowing mammals have reappeared, and there’s plenty to explore. For ages 6-10. Registration required. Members $15, Nonmembers $18. >>
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!
