On Saturday, May 21, 2011 the Harvard Museum of Natural History opened the new Zofnass Family Gallery with the inaugural exhibition, New England Forests, a permanent multi-media exhibition that explores the natural history and ecology of our regional forests, their responses to human activity, and their environmental significance. Visitors are invited to explore the ecology of woodland caribou, wolves, and other wildlife of New England; learn about lichen cities that cling to rocks; and the circle of life within and around a forest pond from tiny tadpoles to giant moose. To complement the exhibition, the museum will offer a fall 2011 series of public lectures and symposia featuring Harvard faculty and other experts.
