Our Changing Forest

In collaboration with scientists from Harvard Forest, fourth through seventh grade students will contribute to the long-term research project entitled: Our Changing Forest.

This week students identified and marked trees within a 10 x 10 meter study plot (at 100 Bedford Road). We will continue tracking of our survey plot for years to come; activities will include data collection and analysis of tree diameter, plant identification, and wildlife sightings. We are excited to be collaborating with Harvard Forest as citizen scientists!
