Reporting on our work, for the record

2022 Reserve Residency

In Fall 2022, we are piloting a new arts program with three talented creators from the Northeast participating in an 11-day residency at the Wells Reserve. These visiting artists will collaborate with scientists and community members to deepen their artwork around critical science, environmental, and health issues, offering workshops in their discipline and presentations of their works in progress.
