The Brackenology blog is primarily maintained by our interns, but others from the team contribute from time to time as well. The blog is about our forest, shambas, and wildlife around campus. Occasionally, the blog will feature more scientific articles or descriptions of events that we’ve done as a team. If you would like to see a blog post on a particular animal or tree please contact us- we would love to hear your ideas.
