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. Typically, about half of the summer students bring their own vehicles. For those folks not having 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) for students to stock up as needed. Collaborators are allowed to drive or ride in Forest Vehicles, family and friends are not. Authorized drivers must have a clean driving record, and have had a valid driver's license for at least 2 years. 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.
