New England Forests

Friends of Harvard Magazine gathered on October 19, 2011 for a special event: New England Forests gallery talk at the Harvard Museum of Natural History with Professor David Foster.

Friends of Harvard Magazine are cordially invited to join us for a special gallery talk:


David Foster, senior lecturer on biology and director of the Harvard Forest, will lead us through this brand-new exhibit that explores the natural history and ecology of our regional forests, their responses to human activity, and their environmental significance. We will learn about the ecology of woodland caribou, wolves, and other wildlife of New England; lichen cities that cling to rocks; and the circle of life within and around a forest pond, from tiny aquatic insects to giant moose. 

Followed by a reception and Q&A.

6-8 PM

Harvard Museum of Natural History, 
26 Oxford Street, 3rd floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts 


by October 12 to Harvard Magazine at 617-496-9780 or e-mail [email protected]
