Pando Science Committee

Despite being the world’s largest tree, we know very little about Pando. Whether it is the atmosphere above or the ground below, there is much to learn about this botanical wonder. In 2022, Friends of Pando will bring together scientists from the worlds of Chemistry, Botany, Geology, Biology, Ecology, GIS, Land Management and Recreational Sciences to produce the “Pando Priority” paper. A collaborative scientific document establishing the rationale for broad, interdisciplinary study of this natural wonder connecting organizations who want to act, with teams ready to undertake baseline studies to understand the tree in peer reviewed papers.

The history of art and conservation are deeply intertwined. As a recent discovery that was not fully verified until 2008, we lack a record of the human experience of living in a world with Pando. Each year, working with various Partners, Friends of Pando employs artists working in a variety of mediums to spend time with Pando to document the human experience to inspire stewardship and archive those works so they may be enjoyed for generations to come.

The Pando Ambassador Program is first-of-its-kind field monitoring program to monitor and protect this natural wonder. In 2022, Friends of Pando will hire, train and support a dedicated agent to undertake passive monitoring of the tree, work to repair and sustain protective fencing, capture data on utilization, observing wildlife activity and documenting the year in the trees life. Work we believe is critical to development of sound policies to ensure the tree can be enjoyed for generations to come.
