2020 was an unprecedented year. We are grateful for all the Stanford Woods community has done to meet environmental challenges together, and to continue to connect knowledge to action. From thought-provoking conversations and scientific innovations, to valuable lessons from the COVID-19 global pandemic, Stanford researchers have continued to advance solutions for people and the planet. Below is a reflection of some of the inspiring work from this past year. We are looking forward to continuing our interdisciplinary environmental research in 2021.
