In 1989, when Harvard University determined it was time to end its forty-year relationship with this 3,830-acre forest, an alliance of local colleges, universities, schools, and scientific institutions came together to preserve and maintain the forest as a living laboratory. The Black Rock Forest Consortium keeps the preserve open to visitors year-round (except during hunting season), while conducting research and education in ecological resource management. The splendid Black Rock Forest forms a lush backdrop for this falls; both get their names from the mineral magnetite.
