(ENVS Lunch & Learn) Witness Tree: What one oak tells us about our changing world and relationship with nature

January 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lincoln Filene Center, Rabb Room,
+ Google Map

BTQURU 03 is a spectacular, 100 year old red oak: a tagged, tracked research specimen in a long term study of changing seasons at the Harvard Forest.

Here, in this tree, is a living timeline of those social and historical changes, and their environmental consequences, observable in my tree’s growth and even its breath.
