Harvard Forest Schoolyard Science Project in Boston Globe

The Harvard Forest Schoolyard LTER program continues to grow and has recently made the news. One of the four research projects currently supported through our program (Buds, Leaves, and Global Warming) was featured in an article in The Boston Globe.

The HF Schoolyard web page was also recently updated. Project descriptions, research protocols, suggested reading, and actual data for each research project can be viewed here.

This year two new partners, the Nashua River Watershed Association and the SCA Massachusetts Parks AmeriCorps, joined our existing partners, the Hitchcock Center for the Environment and the Millers River Environmental Center. Current funding is provided by the National Science Foundation's Schoolyard and EdEn Venture programs as well as the Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET).
