Schoolyard Ecology students at work

This summer, the Harvard Forest Schoolyard Ecology Program will celebrate 10 years of science education in 70 schools across New England. Each year, our program brings more than 3,500 students outside to collect and analyze field data in schools' backyards.

Our 10th annual Summer Institute for Teachers will be held on August 21. All teachers of grades 4-12 are encouraged to join us for a day of training with Harvard Forest ecologists. The workshop prepares teachers for a full year of field study on climate and seasonal change, the invasive hemlock woolly adelgid, or - a new project this year - carbon dynamics and land-use change!
