Forest Research at the VINS Nature Center

We are conducting forest research projects. Details on each topic are listed below.

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment. Announced by the U.S. Government on Earth Day in 1994, GLOBE launched its worldwide implementation in 1995.

VINS is conducting a long term phenology monitoring project on our forest canopy walk. Several trees along the walk will be monitored for changes throughout the seasons.
