And … Worcester, we are doing it! Revitalizing our downtown!

Why, just look at the pretty grounds of the Mercantile Center (the old Worcester Galleria)! Yesterday, I saw flowers galore outside their building, across the street from City Hall. And their flowers cascaded, sprouted and bloomed all through our downtown, all the way to St. Vincent’s. Lovely!

The DCU Center could learn a few things from their across-the-way neighbor! The sparsely planted DCU trees don’t soften their big, harsh building. Don’t make it look inviting! And where are all the colors! No pretty flowers!!! Damn!!!!

July 14: Clark University geographers share tree-health findings!

The Clark University HERO Fellows will share with area stakeholders, residents, and other scientists important findings from their continued analysis of tree survivorship, focusing on trees planted by the Worcester Tree Initiative and the Department of Conservation and Recreation, including trees on public streets.

This annual Stakeholder Summit Research Presentation will be from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 14, in Room 133, Jefferson Academic Center, Main and Woodland Streets. It is free and open to the public.

This Summit is an opportunity for Clark undergraduate researchers to present findings from their summer research and beyond, to receive vital feedback from stakeholders and to discuss next steps.

The Human-Environment Regional Observatory (HERO) program is a unique undergraduate-graduate-faculty experience that engages in research on human-environment relationships in Massachusetts. HERO Fellows conduct hands-on research, learning how to use various research methods, including GIS, remote sensing, geostatistical modeling, interviews and focus groups. Their work, conducted under the mentorship of Clark University faculty, often leads to scholarly publications and presentations at academic conferences across the United States.

The HERO program reflects the human-environment research focus that is a hallmark of the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University.
