Welcome to Aton Forest

Aton Forest, Inc. was formed to preserve the lands assembled by Dr. Frank E. Egler as a Research Natural Area and to continue the low impact, long-term ecological research that he pioneered. The organization also maintains an archive of Dr. Egler ’s written material and library, and curates a portion of his house and furnishings as an informal museum. The aim is to preserve and continue the physical and intellectual legacy of our founder.


 Thursday, May 24th, 9 am to 3 pm
A workshop led by Bill Moorhead
We will cover the identification and ecology of the 21 southern New England Salix species and several of the hybrids of this troublesome genus. The workshop will begin with a lab session at Aton Forest, and then we will hit the field, visiting several sites in the vicinity of Aton Forest. Participants are encouraged to bring specimens.
