The newly established Sustainable Working Landscape Program (SWL) at the Harvard Forest, headed by Drs. Brian Donahue and David Foster seeks to:
- Explore the consequences of plausible forest, farm, and habitable landscape futures in terms of their consequences for the environment and human well-being
- Establish demonstration projects highlighting integrated landscape management and long-term studies through Stewardship Science across New England at six to eight signature landscapes comprised variously of wildlands, woodlands, and farmlands;
- Advance research, education and work with landowners and communities;
- Integrate sustainable farming and forestry with fundamental environmental concerns such as protection of water quality, reduced carbon emissions, and protection of wildlife and biodiversity.
