Hubbard Brook in the News

Outreach and Education Update 

  • Anthea Lavallee gave a general presentation about Hubbard Brook to the House Committee on Agriculture and Forestry at the Vermont Statehouse on May 9. Later in the month, she presented at the Northern Woodlands annual board meeting in support of their collaboration with Hubbard Brook.
     
  • Amey Bailey joined other scientists and environmental educators to participate in the 26th Annual New Hampshire Drinking Water Festival & 4th Grade Water Science Fair on May 9. Approximately 350 third and fourth graders from the Manchester, Keane, and Plymouth areas attended the event, where Amey led a hands-on activity to teach students about soil layers and pH.
     
  • Sarah Garlick led a Hubbard Brook Roundtable at Pierce Lab on May 10 to kick off a new HBRF Advisory Council and to inform a new Science Links project about ecological and community resilience, supported by the NSF Public Engagement with Science grant. The roundtable involved 23 stakeholders and scientist participants including Clara Chaisson, Tim Fahey, Iam Halm, Anthea Lavallee, Peter Groffman, Peter Martin, and Pam Templer.
