I don't have a car so how will I get around once at Harvard Forest?

Printer-friendly version

Harvard Forest has a fleet of vehicles for use for research and education purposes.

Some summer students choose to bring their own vehicles for the duration of the program. For those folks who do not have a vehicle, we provide limited access to Harvard Forest vehicles during non-working hours for group educational/recreational trips. In addition, the proctors organize trips to the local stores (Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, etc). Students can become authorized drivers of Harvard Forest vehicles by having a valid driver's license and a clean driving record for at least 2 years, and completing on-site vehicle training. Student drivers are covered by Harvard Forest's commercially insurance policy but if a student is negligent and causes damage to a vehicle, they may be required to pay a deductible. Collaborators are allowed to drive or ride in Forest Vehicles, family and friends are not.
