In 2005 scientists associated with the Harvard Forest published a report: â€œWildlands and Woodlands: A Vision for the Forests of Massachusetts.â€ The authors called for a bold new land protection effort to stave off accelerating forest fragmentation. Join David Foster, director of the Harvard Forest (and Polly Hill Arboretum research associate) on Tuesday, June 8, from 7:30 – 9 at the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Hall, pictured below, for this special lecture.Â Receive a copy of the report and learn more about the groupâ€™s latest publication, â€œA Wildland and Woodland Vision for the New England Landscape: Local Conservation, Biodiversity and the Global Environment.â€ This report recognizes the important role of the regionâ€™s forests and farmlands and puts forth a conservation and management proposal benefiting our local and global environments. Foster will discuss the direct relevance to conservation planning on Marthaâ€™s Vineyard. Bring your questions and concerns. This lecture sponsored by Bartlett Tree Experts.Â For more information, log on to www.pollyhillarboretum.org.
