A Sunwheel for the Campus


Announcement: To avoid crowds during the coronavirus pandemic, there will be no presentations at the UMass Amherst Sunwheel marking the start of summer. However, the public is invited to visit the site for sunrise and sunset to celebrate the longest days of the year. Visitors should wear masks and be prepared for the possibility of wet footing and mosquitoes.
