Coming up at the Harvard Museum of Natural History on Thursday evenings, (11/15, 11/29, and 12/13)…I’ll be there!
Woodlands and Waters, Forests and Faucets: A Look at Massachusetts’ Woods, Water Bodies, and Water Supplies for the Boston Metro Area
Lecture by Betsy Colburn, Harvard Forest
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 6:00 PM
Betsy Colburn, Aquatic Ecologist at the Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA, investigates how forests affect the water cycle – e.g., streamflows, groundwater, floodwaters, wetlands, and clean water for human uses. In this talk, Dr. Colburn will look at how major changes in land use have also changed the sources of water for metropolitan Boston, and going forward, how hold proposals for future forest conservation and land use have important implications for life in eastern Mass., as well as in the rural central and western areas. Free and open to the public, Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street. Free event parking in the 52 Oxford Street garage.
