Field Group with researcher

The Harvard Forest's conference center, including on-site housing and meeting facilities, welcomes a wide range of visitors annually for workshops, retreats, professional gatherings, and more. We also host a variety of educational programs for learners of all ages, including free monthly tours. Field trips and guided research tours showcase the Harvard Forest's varied landscape and ongoing ecological research.

Through these educational programs and our conference center, we at the Harvard Forest hope to inspire the next generation of scientists and land stewards, build transformative relationships with students, faculty, and our local community, and foster long-term engagement with our visitors. These relationships guide our research and help us to better address environmental challenges in ways that are relevant to all.

To create more equitable access to our facilities and accommodate a broader diversity of learners, we offer financial support to eliminate fee-related barriers to access. Further, we are working to build our own understanding of the needs of learners from all backgrounds, and working to expand racial, cultural, economic, ability, urban-to-rural, and gender diversity and representation at the Harvard Forest.
