Highstead Arboretum

127 Lonetown Road
Redding, CT 06896



The Stewardship Science long-term forest monitoring program, created by Highstead and Harvard Forest, allows landowners and conservation-minded groups to track changes in their woods over time. Throughout the month of July, Highstead's Senior Ecologist Ed Faison and intern Amanda Hewes conducted forest monitoring workshops at two locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut. These workshops gave groups hands-on practice with the forest monitoring methods and allowed participants to discover how a forest monitoring project could benefit their organization. The workshops received very positive reviews from attendees and helped to spur increased engagement in the forest monitoring program.
