Students enjoying the Havard Forest Schoolyard LTER Program

In the Harvard Forest Schoolyard LTER program, teachers learn about and initiate ecology research in their classrooms and schoolyards. More than 3,500 students each year learn to collect data on important long-term ecological issues and processes. Student data are then shared on the Harvard Forest website.

The Harvard Forest is part of a national network of sites that support K-12 teachers and students in hands-on ecological research.This work is supported by the Long-Term Ecological Research Program of the National Science Foundation, Highstead Foundation, and private donors.
