There are a number of resources available for all members of the Smith College community who are interested in extending their involvement in environmental issues beyond the classroom.

Come visit us in our brand new space! The center is a place to learn more about how to engage with environment, design, and sustainability issues and questions, get advice on courses, study, join an environmental student org meeting, find some of the people on campus most involved with these issues, and much more.

The MacLeish Field Station
Thanks to a gift from former College president Jill Ker Conway, Smith College dedicated the Ada and Archibald MacLeish Field Station in West Whately, Massachusetts in May 2008. The mission of the field station is to foster field-based education and research that promotes environmental study and experiential learning in a forested and agricultural landscape. Read more about the exciting work we are engaged in and about our new state-of-the-art Environmental Classroom. Join us for a Field Station Friday to hike the trails or simply get away from the hustle and bustle of campus...
