  • 11:00 am – 1:00 pm A New World Order? How Russia’s War in Ukraine Changes Geopolitics
    11:00 am – 1:00 pm

    Emily Channell-Justice is the Director of the Temerty Contemporary Ukraine Program at the Ukrainian Research Institute, Harvard University. She is a sociocultural anthropologist who has been doing research in Ukraine since 2012.
    A New World Order? How Russia’s War in Ukraine Changes Geopolitics
    Russia’s war in Ukraine has entered its eighth month. Despite the successes of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and major unrest in Russia, there is little indication that Vladimir Putin will soon end the war. What explains his motivations, and how have Ukrainians fought back? How is Ukraine distinct from Russia, and why can’t Putin accept its independence? Emily’s presentation will explain the background of the invasion, look at Ukraine’s history, and discuss potential future outcomes for Ukraine and the world. Enjoy Ukrainian pastries and a hot beverage, and browse the Ukrainian crafts for sale after the lecture. Event is free. All donations go to Dobro New England to provide humanitarian support for the people of Ukraine.

  • 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm The Nature of Oaks with Doug Tallamy
    4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

    Headlines about the decline of the natural world that serves as our life support have spurred homeowners across the country to take action by planting native species that will help reverse this trend. No plant will achieve this faster than one of North America’s 91 species of oaks. Oaks support more species of animals, sequester more carbon, protect watersheds and nourish soil communities better than any other plant genus on the continent. Dr. Doug Tallamy, author ofThe Nature of Oaks(2021), will discuss the many fascinating things happening to the oaks in his yard each month of the year. His hope is to inspire people to plant and protect these vital, majestic and life-giving trees.This event is made possible by a generous gift from The Echo Charitable Foundation.
    Co-sponsored by the Essex County Ornithological Club (ECOC). A brief ECOC club meeting will take place from 7:30–7:45 pm. All are welcome to attend.
