Hubbard Brook Mirror Lake Campus
To share information among ecosystem scientists and stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds — timber managers, ski resort operators, maple sugar producers, winter recreationists, and others — so that better understanding of the changes now occurring can lead to better science, improved management practices, and more informed economic decisions.
Specific meeting objectives included:
- Inform the research community of unmet information needs and areas of interest from forest users.
- Acquaint attendees with the scope and potentially relevant results of more than 55 years of climate records and research at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest.
- Identify formats which make information from the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study most useful to forest users.
- Plan follow-up events or projects which increase the dialogue between ecosystem scientists and interested parties.
