Did you know that Smith owns 260 acres of land in West Whately? The Ada and Archibald MacLeish Field Station, home to the Bechtel Environmental Classroom, is a patchwork of forest and farmland that provides opportunities for the Smith community to pursue environmental research, outdoor education and low-impact recreation. It even has a sugar bush or two! The Botanic Garden and the Center for the Environment are bringing a taste of MacLeish to you. Join us for a sweet event on campus featuring maple syrup produced from MacLeish sugar maples (Acer saccharum).
