Established in 1907, Harvard Forest is primarily a world-renowned research center, conducting long-term ecological research and studies of all aspects of the forest—biology, soils, economics, history, and more—as well as collaborating with scientists from numerous other institutions and with educators throughout New England. It is also the home of the Fisher Museum and its dioramas exploring forest history. More ...
