An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, April 8, 2020

A diagram depicting tree growth over time, adapted from Oliver 1978.

Trees and forests are incredibly dynamic, but because their rate of change is out of sync with the typical length of human observation, they can sometimes seem fixed and static. Join Harris Center Director and forest ecologist Jeremy Wilson to explore the dramatic and complex changes our forests experience over time. Together, we’ll learn about tree architecture and growth, how trees interact with each other, forest disturbance and regrowth, the implications of forest dynamics for wildlife habitat, and the history of New England’s forests. Wednesdays, March 25, April 1, and April 8, from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Harris Center. Snow date: April 15.

Cost: $30 for Harris Center supporters / $50 all others

Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Sara LeFebvre at (603) 525-3394 or by email.
