Tuesday, September 14 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Harvard Forest

Tour Leaders: Audrey Barker Plotkin (Harvard Forest) and Ed Faison (Highstead)
Meet at the Fisher Museum at Harvard Forest,

In 2001, the Harvard Forest began planning how to bring nearly a century of plantation research to a grand finale, and developed a management plan in which 80 of about 125 acres of our remaining plantations were harvested between 2008-2010. More information.

We will visit two harvested sites and talk about the long-term research a group of collaborating scientists have initiated. The first site is an ~10-minute walk from the Fisher Museum; the second is a short drive so we'll carpool to the site and then walk in another ~10 minutes from there. This event has been submitted for review by the Massachusetts Forester License Board for continuing education credit.
