Upcoming Events at Summer Star™

SUMMER STAR WILDLIFE SANCTUARY









































ECO-TRACKING AT SUMMER STAR with DAVID BROWN
SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 2017, 12 to 3 pm

David Brown Tracking
Summer Star is extremely fortunate to enlist the services of David Brown to provide a three hour combined indoor/outdoor eco-tracking program at the sanctuary. With his guidance, participants will see that many of our resident animals remain busy through the winter months. Participants are encouraged to check the temperature forecast. Dressing in layers is usually a safe bet.
Bio: David Brown
db%20pub%20photo
Tracker-naturalist David Brown has offered interpretive programs for over 20 years to many public and private groups in New England. He practices “quiet activism” believing that a people don’t need to be convinced to protect what they love. His task is to help them love nature by helping them to see some of the life hidden from direct view by foliage and the night. He is the author of several publications on the art of animal tracking, including The Next Step: Interpreting Animal Tracks, Trails and Sign, recently released by McDonald & Woodward Publishing Company.
Eco-tracking at Summer Star
We will take a roughly two-hour walk at Summer Star Sanctuary practicing the arts of finding and identifying the tracks, trails and other sign of wild animals that make the pine-oak forest their home. Some of this sign, such as tracks in the snow, is obvious; other evidence hides in plain sight and needs to be pulled out of the background to be identified. Along the way we will try to answer the questions: why was the detected animal here and what was it doing? That is, what was its relationship with the habitat in which it was found? This is “eco-tracking” or ecological animal tracking. The indoor component of the program will include a slide show and track casts.dewolfe2
David Brown points out bobcat tracks in porcupine trail.
Free event, but registration is required. Email us at info@SummerStarWildlife.org or call 508-869-3434 between the hours of 11am and 3pm, Saturday – Tuesday. Space is limited.

Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary


An Eastern Screech Owl was released at Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary   December 7, 2016


Today’s release was successful. The owl was brought to TUFTS from Salem. He has such unique beautiful brownish-red feather and he is very little. He first landed on the tree branch near the trail head. But only in half second he quickly flew very fast across Wildflower Meadow towards Northwest. He might sense the wetland nearby, and he might see the new owl box later at our beaver pond. We had Wilson, Rick, Craig, Larry, Jess’s husband and her daughter. Afterwards, we had refreshment, hot tea, and got chance to chat and ask Jess more questions. It was a nice evening---moon and stars started coming out when we were ready to leave. Photos are coming soon, they were taken by Craig Buttner.




There is a brand new blog to show you. On Dec 7th around 4:30pm, we received a recovered Eastern Screech owl from Jessica Zorge--- the Wildlife Program Assistant at Cummings School of Vet Medicine at TUFTS University. She brought in this little red feather owl to be released at Summer Star.   The brand new blog was created by Summer Star staff Liam Hart---from tracing a thread started by Girl Scouts came over to learn building the house for the Eastern Screech owl, we had SVT’s Stewardship Assistant Director Dan Stimson led the program. He then mounted the owl boxes up on the trees. On last Wednesday, the thread is completed while the Eastern Screech Owl was released –powerfully he was flying straight crossing the Wildflower Meadow and disappeared into the trees—hopefully he will find the newly built nesting house.

This event will be in English.



Date & TIme: Tuesday, 11/29, 7pm
Location: Clypd, 212 Elm Street, Somerville, MA

With the world's population becoming increasingly urban, farming in the city has become a growing trend. Cathy will discuss the environmental, social, and economical impacts of urban farming through history of farming in the US and case studies of urban farming in Chicago. Cathy will also share with us various ways one can reduce waste and produce food for your household.

"Healthcare cost containment under single-payer systems: lesson from Taiwan and Korea"
Monday, December 5, 2016 (12:30 - 1:30pm)
Harvard Chan School, GHP 12th Floor Conference Room (Building 1, room 1208)
As countries worldwide look to achieving universal health coverage, rising health care costs often pose a barrier. Single-payer health insurance systems, such as those in Taiwan and South Korea, are thought to be more efficient and likely more effective for containing costs. However, in the last decades, South Korea has also had nearly the highest growth rate in health expenditure among industrialized countries. This talk examines factors for containing health care costs by comparing South Korea with Taiwan, with potential lessons for other countries considering single-payer systems.

Barred owl W161661 was admitted on July 11th 2016. The owl was a young of this year. The primary problem was an open (bone exposed) humeral fracture (a long bone in the wing). The wing was surgically repaired by Dr. Maureen Murray on July 13th 2016. Many weeks followed to ensure the fracture was stable and healing properly. Once the fracture had healed decreased range of motion presented in the wing. Dr. Murray performed physical therapy on the wing. The barred owl then moved through various sized enclosures. The owl was flight tested multiple times and moved to the Shalin Liu Healing Cage where it was conditioned for release. After 94 days of care at the clinic, the owl was released at Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary on October 11th at 6pm.

CONTEMPORARY ARTS INTERNATIONAL 


Acton, MA – Contemporary Arts International (CAI), a nonprofit art center, announces the interdisciplinary exhibition in CAI’s Gallery. The exhibition is entitled “TWO REACTIONS, ONE ENVIRONMENT” by Hungarian Artists Ágnes Verebics and Ákos Bánki.  An Opening reception will be held on October 9, Sunday, 2:00PM.

VEREBICS and BANKI are the artists chosen for the exchange program that CAI is in collaboration with in the APA Gallery in Budapest. The two well accomplished artists come into the Quarry with open minds and sharp eyes.  The show presents two distinctly different personalities, sensitivities, and painting techniques, for example, their use of objects, photos, figurative and concrete vs. abstract paintings in reaction to the environment surrounding the Quarry. The found objects, nature and man-made, they encounter inspires their view of the world specific to the Quarry in Acton, Massachusetts, New England.

Ágnes Verebics’s work in faces and masks which hide behind devices attached to machines is calling for the ancestral genetics.
 In recent years, she has developed a special technique painting on aluminum plates and gives a futuristic look to her fantastic figurative work. As she stated, “…exaggerated human and animal body parts inspire and dominate the power of my works... I use fragmentary body images as vehicles to explore the sexuality, violence and the wider human condition;
equally important are questions of what lies behind these faces, what is revealed and what stays out of sight. In the case of self- portraits, what, one may ask, what does one see when facing oneself”.
 Ákos Bánki’s work usually associates photographic studies of figurative elements to his series, extracting, transplanting and translating some of them into his abstract language and then integrating it to his paintings. An experienced reality therefore becomes a physical and psychic manifestation. Sweeping aside the figuratives, he seeks and sneaks into the psychological, emotional, subconscious quarters of chromatics and visualizations in order to make it burst from the inside, aiming to generate an effect on the viewer. Bánki’s is one of the main figures of the new wave of non-figurative painting in Hungary. As a total abstract painter who relates to actionism, expressionism, but also conceptualism, and who paints not only with his hand but with his whole body, not only with his mind, but with his guts, the dripping, leaking, flowing energy fields of Ákos Bánki’s works often slap the viewer with their energy, radiance and vibration.

Both Verebics and Banki were born in 1982, and both have earned a Masters degree in painting at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2006.  Banki has also pursued his studies with a DLA formation in 2011 at the University of Pécs.
  
CAI’s admission fee is $5 for students and $10 for adults, which will include a tour of the studio and the sculpture park.
