Hi! My name is Ms. Hoskins. Please join me while I travel to Maryland to study Climate Change and Fragmented Forests!

I thought everyone would like to see where I will be spending my week learning about the changing climate and its effects on trees and the efforts scientists are making to preserve and conserve our forests.

This is an areal view of the Smithsonian Educational Research Center (SERC) near Edgewater, Maryland.

Everyone who knows me well is aware I have absolutely no sense of direction and my fellow teachers are teasing me as to how long it will take me to become hopelessly lost in the forest!

Many students have asked me how many acres of forests SERC encompasses, the types of trees found in the forest, and the age of the forest.  I will let everyone know the answers to these questions as soon as I meet with the scientists at SERC.

Vicki, Wow, the view of the SERC is beautiful. I bet you are so excited to working on environmental issues in such a gorgeous location. I can't wait to hear from you when you start your research.
