The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) is seeking volunteers to plant an experimental forest called "BiodiversiTREE." The project site is on Cumberstone Road, about ten minutes from the SERC campus and Reed Center. SERC is in the process of planting 24,000 trees on 31 acres, the first large-scale experimental tree plantation in North America. SERC is measuring the impact of tree species diversity on forest structure, with side experiments measuring water quality, carbon sequestration, soil organisms, effects of herbivory, etc. Contact Whitney Hoot, 410-224-4715 as soon as possible to sign up for this opportunity and contribute to the start of a 100-year experiment at SERC!

A diverse group of 57 senior scientists and policymakers have joined forces to save the Bay. This is our plan."
