Go behind-the-scenes to discover scientific research in the Duke Forest.
Friday, December 2, 2022 from 1-4pm
Join the Duke Forest for one of our most popular annual tours—the Research Tour—back after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Researchers come from across Duke University and the world to study in the largest laboratory at Duke: the “living laboratory” of the Duke Forest. We’ll spend the afternoon within the Durham Division’s Gate 12* and visit several research sites that all revolve around the study of trees. The following projects will be presented:
Accessibility: The Research Tour will take place within Duke Forest Gate 12 and will include walking on foot on unpaved surfaces, through forested plots, and on gravel roads. Some stretches of walking between research sites will include short uphill and downhill sections. No bathrooms are available (the nearest bathroom is a hike away at the Gate F picnic shelter). Parking is available and will be directed by Duke Forest staff.
Meeting details will be sent to all registrants two days prior.
*Please note: Participants will receive staff-guided access to the Duke Forest during its annual closure for the Deer Herd Reduction Program. During this time, the Duke Forest is closed to public access Monday-Friday through December 16, 2022.
