Outreach and Education Update
Mark Green and Geoff Wilson presented on "Historical climate warming in the White Mountains of New Hampshire: implications for snowmaking water needs at ski areas" at the New Hampshire Water & Watershed Conference on March 15 at Plymouth State University. Sarah Thorne shared a poster on "WaterViz! A Water Cycle Visualization Tool at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest."
Sarah Garlick and Marissa Weiss led a joint meeting of the Harvard Forest and Hubbard Brook investigators at the Harvard Forest on March 20.
Nat Cleavitt is working with Holderness Central School to teach second grade classes about the plant life cycle over the course of eight weeks. The second graders have been studying bean seed germination and how environmental factors, such as temperature and moisture, affect growth. Students are measuring plant parts, recording their observations in journals, and discussing their findings. Nat's efforts were recently highlighted in the school's newsletter, the Hawk Herald.
Sarah Garlick and John Campbell will present Hubbard Brook winter climate change research at the meeting of the Climate Change Education Collaborative on April 9.
Clara Chaisson will present “Engagement Begins at Home: Connections between Internal and External Engagement for Achieving Broader Impacts Goals” at the National Association for Broader Impacts Summit in Tucson, Arizona, on April 30. 
Save the Date
The next Committee of Scientists meeting is scheduled to take place on April 10, 2019 at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, NY. The meeting will focus on preparation for the NSF LTER mid-term review.
The Hubbard Brook Research Foundation will host an informal discussion of Chapters 5 and 6 ("Forest Management and Ecosystem Dynamics" and "Hydrology") of Hubbard Brook's Online Book on Tuesday, April 16 at 1pm. Join us in person at Pierce Lab, or join remotely at the following Zoom link. This is an opportunity to have a laid-back chat about Hubbard Brook science and ask questions.
Scott Bailey will present "An Acid Rain Retrospective: From Discovery to Controversy and Beyond" on Tuesday, April 30 at 6pm at Walter's Basin Restaurant in Holderness, NH. The talk is part of a Science Pub series on Climate Change Solutions organized by the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, Squam Lakes Association, and Squam Lakes Conservation Society.
The MELNHE project has received full funding from USDA NIFA to continue for the next three years.This means we will be able to continue nutrient additions in thirteen northern hardwood stands to evaluate co- limitation of forest ecosystem productivity by nitrogen and phosphorus. Stands of different age and site quality are located at Hubbard Brook, Bartlett, and Jeffers Brook.This summer we will be making measurements of tree growth after nine years of treatment. Principal Investigators on the project are Ruth Yanai, Melany Fisk and Tim Fahey.
Calling all Hubbard Brook storytellers! Hubbard Brook is hosting its first-ever live storytelling event on July 9 to kick of Cooperators' week (see our March 29 email for more details). If you'd like to participate, please email Anthea Lavallee and Clara Chaisson a short description of your story idea by April 17.
Thank you for reading!
