Harvard Forest Schoolyard LTER
|Learn about and initiate ecology research in the classroom|
|Collect data on important long-term ecological issues.|
The Harvard Forest is part of a national network of sites that supports K-12 teachers and students in hands-on ecological research.
In the Harvard Forest Schoolyard LTER program, teachers learn about and initiate ecology research in their classrooms and schoolyards. Students learn to collect data on important long-term ecological issues and processes. Student data are then shared on the Harvard Forest website.
