Harvard Forests, Fisher Museum Dioramas of New England forests. Petersham, MA
The primary exhibit is 23 internationally acclaimed models (dioramas), the first seven of which depict 230 years of landscape change in central New England, beginning with European colonization in 1700. The remaining dioramas portray 20th-century forest management techniques and a series of conservation challenges including erosion and fire. Additional displays now bring the story up to modern times and include a brief overview of current Harvard Forest research.
