Green-Wood Announces Two New Research Opportunities

Did you know that historic cemeteries can be an important resource for environmental research? These green spaces are the perfect place for inquiry and experimentation in urban ecology, climate resilience, species diversity, and more.

At Green-Wood in Brooklyn, the Living Collection of over 8,000 trees and shrubs, wide range of wildlife, and institutional records are an invaluable set of resources. That's why Green-Wood is offering two all-new research awards in 2022 focusing on Urban Environmental Science and Human/Nature Interactions.

They are looking for emerging investigators in the natural sciences (graduate students, early-career faculty, NGO-affiliated staff, and others) interested in creating a research project utilizing Green-Wood's assets. Sound like you? Applications are now open!
TAKING ROOT news and the NYSUFC Blog and Annual Report are made possible by a U.S. Forest Service grant, facilitated through NYSDEC Urban and Community Forestry.
