88 The Paulson Ecology of Place Initiative

Two wooden benches, constructed by students as part of The Paulson Ecology of Place Initiative, overlook Severance Green

A wide-ranging program that invites students to use Wellesley’s campus as a living laboratory. Recent projects include building birdhouses from recycled pallets, building benches from fallen trees, conducting interdisciplinary research on Wellesley’s water resources, and leading a winter birdwatching walk. Part of a campus-wide effort to create a more sustainable community (and world!).
