August Feature - Touring National Forest Science

August is a prime month for a road trip, so this month we selected web features from our archive that take you to a few of the National Forests where Northern Research Station scientists are working to answer questions important to National Forest managers. We visit the Allegheny National Forest, where Station scientists are part of a forest health collaborative; we see how the Eastern Region is using well-designed stream culverts to support movement of aquatic species (and terrestrial critters too), and we wind up on the Mark Twain National Forest, where the Northern Research Station contributed to a forest restoration project that is leading to reintroduction of a native bird that vanished decades ago.

We need something on top of those controls, and these scientists, they’ve been working towards a solution — a long-term resistance. Listen here >>
