Bee Keeping 101 Sat, Apr 29

Bee Keeping 101


Members and their guests only!

We are excited to have the opportunity to watch Kevin Koch '73 restock his bee hive. He will demonstrate how he inspects the hive (unfortunately last year's bees did not survive the winter) and then  he will transfer his new bee colony from their transportation hive to the permanent hive.

We will also sample some honey harvested from his hive last fall and from other local Massachusetts hives.

BSS Coffee: Shefali Oza-Learning from Ebola for Future Emergencies Mon, May 01

shefali-ozaThe 2014-2016 West African Ebola outbreak caught almost everyone off-guard, from local communities to multilateral organizations. Nearly 70 times more people were infected this time than the previous worst Ebola outbreak.

Can we use the lessons learned from this epidemic to be better prepared for future emergencies?  What role can the tech community play in all of this?

In this talk, Shefali (MIT '04) will discuss the unusual challenges her team faced at an Ebola Treatment Centre in Sierra Leone, where she led the design, implementation, and management of health information systems for paper and electronic patient records. Join us for coffee, tea, and snacks as we listen to Shefali's talk!

Drumlin Farm Sat, May 06

Come join fellow alums and family members for a fun volunteer activity at the Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary. Ages 7 and up are welcome. Drumlin Farm is both a wildlife sanctuary and working farm located in Lincoln, MA. Sitting on 206 acres, there are 4 miles of hiking trails with a view of the greater Boston area, as well as the Audubon Shop.

We will be pulling up garlic mustard, which is an easy plant to recognize and will be in bloom. This task requires volunteers to walk on uneven surfaces and bend to pull the plants.

Please wear sturdy shoes and bring gardening gloves and water. Meet at 9:15 am at the visitor center 208 South Great Road, Lincoln, MA 01773. Please bring a bag lunch to enjoy in the picnic area following the volunteer activity around noon.

Volunteers are welcome to visit animals in the farmyard after lunch.
