Starting in September, a connection was forged between the 253-acre Irvington Woods and the 4,000-acre Harvard Forest, an ecological research site that Harvard University owns in Petersham, Massachusetts.

C.J. Reilly, the head of grounds and operations for the Irvington Woods Park and the director of education for the O’Hara Nature Center, added the land he oversees to two research projects being conducted throughout New England as part of Harvard Forest’s Schoolyard Ecology Program, which started in 2004.
