Science on Sunday

Kerry Rogers will speak at View this Sunday, Jan. 20, at 2 pm as part of the Henry M. Kashiwa Eco Gallery series of talks and demonstrations called “Science on Sundays.” Kerry will present an overview of the “green” technology employed at View. He will also discuss the process of the building’s development, from the onset of construction through occupancy, and how View has taken measures to protect the environment.
The presentation, illustrated with a slide presentation, will focus on 1.) water-efficient landscaping, 2.) renewable energy, 3.) energy performance, and 4.) building with FSC (Forest Certified Council) certified wood and recycled materials.
Kerry is a board member of View. He and his family have been life-long seasonal residents of Old Forge. Since 1980, he has been self-employed in the construction industry as a structural engineer.
View received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification for the “green” technology incorporated in the design of its new building. 

Upcoming Science on Sunday talks include aquatic invasives by Ron Smith, on Feb. 3; unexpected effects of tropical storm Irene on the aquatic ecosystem in a Catskill mountain river by Barry Baldigo and Scott George on Feb. 17; and the migration of Monarch butterflies in and beyond New York by Ernest Williams on March 3. Talks are usually held on the first and third Sundays of the month. More information can be found on our website.

The Eco Gallery has permanent and rotating exhibits about the natural world. Currently on display are paintings by Mitch Lee and photographs by Gary Lee as well as several permanent displays.

There is no admission charge to attend the Science on Sunday talks.
