At an April 11th workshop community members, foresters, and high school teachers and will learn how to establish and set up a permanent forest research plot, collect and enter data, and store the information for long-term studies. 

The Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust is partnering with Project Learning Tree to establish a Forest Inventory Growth (FIG) Plot at Crystal Spring Farm in Brunswick. Workshop attendees will actively participate in creating the plot, establishing research questions, and gathering and using technology to compare data. This will launch an authentic citizen-science project in the forests of Crystal Spring Farm, allowing local students, community members, and forestry professionals to gather data that can be compared over time, and state-wide with other FIG plots.
