Hemlock Hospice

You may recall the Triple Decker Ecology exhibit I attended a few weeks ago, at the Somerville Museum, when we hosted our climate social. It was a fascinating visioning of Somerville adapting to climate change. Well, the same artist, David Buckley Borden, had another exhibit called Hemlock Hospice. This installation took over Harvard Forest and paid tribute to hemlocks, a species of trees that is being eradicated from the forest by insects that would in the past have been controlled by cold winters. Alas, climate change has expanded their range and they are flourishing at the expense of the hemlocks. Today, I went back to the Somerville Museum (and I became a member, because these exhibits are awesome), for an event that featured a 20-minute documentary about the Hemlock Hospice.
