Harvard Museum of Natural History Unveils Permanent Exhibition on New England Forests

While we’re on the subject of trees, the Harvard Museum of Natural History just opened the new Zofnass Family Gallery with its inaugural exhibition, New England Forests. This permanent multi-media display explores the wildlife and ecology of the New England forest. The exhibition will teach people about the trees, lichens, and animals right outside our doors while enjoying a forest walk with air conditioning and without mosquitoes. To further their educational goal, the museum will host a companion lecture series this fall.

I walked through this last week. Hard to believe the huge trees, plants and lichens are all hand-made from different epoxies. Good news is you can't get poison ivy from the model! The museum has half priced admission on 4th Wednesdays this summer, and of course is always free to Mass. residents on Sunday mornings.
