Hubbard Brook in the News 

Outreach and Education Update (Including recent and planned speaking engagements for public audiences, community outreach events, and K–12 education involvement

  • Lindsey Rustad and Anthea Lavallee met the Assistant Director, the Operations Section Chief, and the Assistant Chief of Field Services at NH Homeland Security and Emergency Management on February 2 to discuss the Ice Storm Experiment and opportunities to collaborate and to share information related to these extreme weather events.  
     
  • Charley Driscoll traveled to Washington, D.C. along with Kathy Fallon Lambert from Harvard Forest, Jonathan Buonocore from Harvard University, and Dallas Burtraw from Resources for the Future to give two briefings on February 6. The first session was organized by the American Lung Association and was open to House staff, the press, and the public. The second was closed and was for minority members of the Senate Environment and Public Works committee staff. The group explained differences in carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen emissions; air quality impacts; and health and ecosystem benefits between the current standard to control carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and a replacement proposed by the Trump administration that would improve the heat rate efficiency of individual facilities.
     
  • Hubbard Brook Research Foundation Trustee Anant Sundaram, Anthea Lavallee, and Mark Green met with Cabot Creamery Cooperative’s Director of Sustainability and Environmental Consultant on February 23 to discuss respective approaches to environmental monitoring.
     
  • Nat Cleavitt continued doing educational outreach for the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation with a February 20 visit with the first graders at Holderness Central School. She has two school trips planned in March.
     
  • Photographer Joe Klementovich visited Hubbard Brook to take pictures for his “Portraits of Science” series. Check out the images (featuring Tammy Wooster and Amey Bailey) here.
