  4. Amherst Pelham Regional School District Planning Board Public Forum

    April 22, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Amherst Regional Middle School Library

    Should Amherst and Pelham form a PreK-6 Region? Currently, the Amherst and Pelham elementary school districts share a superintendent and central administration through Superintendency Union 26. Regionalization would combine the two school districts into one region. This region would be governed by a regional school committee that would replace the current Amherst and Pelham school committees. The Regional School District Planning Board has been meeting for a year to examine the possibility of regionalization and invites public feedback at these forums. The Planning Board has not made a recommendation regarding regionalization and public input is a critical component of this recommendation. Each forum will include a presentation of the process, potential benefits, and challenges, Q and A, small group discussions, and opportunities to provide feedback.

  13. The Arctic on Fire: The Impacts of Climate Change on Tundra Ecosystems

    April 25, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hitchcock Center for the Environment

    Due to climate change, the Arctic is experiencing an increase in wildfires. It is known that wildfires are going to alter the ecosystems; however, the specific biogeochemical impacts are unknown. Natalie Baillargeon and Rhys MacArthur participated in an expedition to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, AK last summer and began a collaborative project investigating the impacts that wildfires have on plant composition and nutrient cycling. Natalie Baillargeon is a second-year at Hampshire, studying environmental science and policy. Natalie’s research investigates the impacts of wildfires on plant nutrient and nitrogen cycling in the Arctic. Rhys MacArthur is in her last year at Hampshire College studying Ecology and Environmental Justice. Rhys’s research focuses on the effects wildfires have on the above-ground biomass of arctic tundra ecosystems and the ecological processes that drive vegetation composition.
