Dear Science/Humanities group,

Very briefly: Together with Jim Abbott, Curator and Director of Evergreen Museum & Library, I am exploring the possibility of expanding how we at Hopkins can take fullest advantage of the wonderful resource that Evergreen--on 25 splendid acres just a scant mile north of the Homewood campus--offers our faculty and students.

Jim and I are interested in tapping into these grounds as a resource for new course/research/project initiatives in areas the might include biology, environmental science, engineering (there is a problematic stream and bridge combination on the grounds), history, and the fine arts.

We are looking for a diverse group from campus, from a range of departments and backgrounds, to join us for a picnic/supper, tour of the Evergreen grounds, and conversation/brainstorming around how we might use the grounds in research and teaching.

If you are interested and available to do this over the summer, please drop me a quick note, along with a broad sense of your schedule.  And, if you have colleagues whom you think might take a specific interest in Evergreen's grounds, pass their names on to me.  I would be glad to include them.

Many thanks,
