There is a growing recognition within the long term ecologic research (LTER) community that there is a need to revitalize relationships between the arts and sciences (Swanson 2015). Hubbard Brook participates in the LTER Ecological Reflections program, an effort to combine the expertise of diverse disciplines to create a more unified approach to inter-related ecological and social issues. Hubbard Brook has launched an Arts and Sciences program in which ecosystem scientists collaborate with artists, musicians, neuroscientists, and teachers to explore environmental sensor data in creative ways.
We are growing our Arts and Sciences program by establishing an artist-in-residence program at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest. For more information about this program, please contact the program lead: Lindsey Rustad: firstname.lastname@example.org.
