September Feature - Back to School

It seemed a long way off last June, when happy children spilled off the bus with a whole summer in front of them, but suddenly it is September and the beginning of a new school year. The Northern Research Station’s home page is going back to school too. This month we feature an employee who relishes advocating for STEM, research finding that trees on the school grounds enhance academic performance, a publication concluding that kids’ ties to nature are stronger when they are forged informally, and a partnership that is making i-Tree a teaching tool.
