Future Studies


with Gregory Ulrich

Calendar Nov 2, 2017 at 7 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Future Studies examines the forces of change, how they interact and cascade into tomorrow. The course will study how futurists have successfully, and at times unsuccessfully, predicted how, why, and occasionally when change will occur. As the velocity of change in our society is accelerating, and it very definitely is, the need to see the road ahead becomes ever more important. Look into this class, and look into the future. Greg is a retired Professional Pilot with Masters Degree in Liberal Studies. His Masters Thesis examined why we often fail to see the future, even when the information is in front of us.

Thursday, Nov. 2- 30, 7-8:30 p.m., 4 sessions * no class 11/ 23

Course Fee: $35

Reflections on the Water - the health of the Great Bay/Piscataqua Watershed


with Melissa Paly

Calendar Oct 17, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Melissa Paly is the Great Bay - Piscataqua Waterkeeper, where she advocates, educates and motivates on behalf of the bays, rivers and coast that make the Seacoast region such a special place to live, work and play. She has more than 30 years’ experience in environmental management, advocacy and communications, and was past president of the Kittery Land Trust.

Session 1 - What's the science telling us about the health of our coastal region? 52 towns in NH and ME are part of the Great Bay/Piscataqua Watershed, with a network of rivers and bays connecting us all. Here in Kittery, Spruce Creek flows into Portsmouth Harbor, so we are part of this interconnected eco-region. What is the latest science telling us about the health of our waterscape? We'll look at the quality of our drinking water, rivers and streams, bays and harbors, fisheries, salt marshes and more.

Tuesday, Oct. 17, 6:30 -8 p.m.

Session 2 - Taking action around the watershed For a relatively small geographic area, there is a tremendous amount of work going on at state agencies, non-profit organizations, town boards, and volunteers in every community to improve the health of the watershed. Learn about the many innovative and encouraging programs underway to address water pollution, stormwater, coastal resilience and climate change, marine education and more.

Thursday, Nov. 2, 6:30-8 p.m.

Session 3 - Becoming part of the solution Everyone who works, lives and plays in the Great Bay/Piscataqua Watershed can make a difference. We'll discuss practical things we can do around the house, the garden, the driveway, with our pets, boats and bikes to become better stewards of our coastal backyard.

Tuesday, Nov. 14, 6:30-8 p.m.

Course Fee: $15, for all 3 sessions
