Biology teacher and Harvard University alumna Karen Anderson was recently honored for her contributions to the Harvard Forest Schoolyard Ecology program. Specifically, she was recognized for her nine years of dedicated project leadership of field ecology projects contributing to The Woolly Bully and the Hemlock Pest project led by Harvard Forest scientist, David Orwig.
Ms. Anderson’s Environmental Science class also went on a field trip to Harvard Forest. Students shared their project data from the hemlock trees that grow on campus and met Dr. Orwig. The class saw first-hand the dramatic changes a tiny insect is making on giant hemlock trees in many parts of Massachusetts.
Congratulations to Ms. Anderson–our students thank you, and so does the environment!
