In Memory of a Harvard Forest Schoolyard Teacher and Mentor; Bill Van Valkenburg

 Bill Van Valkenburg's Obituary is available online at:  http://www.Van Valk Obit


  1. Pam,
    Thank you so much for sharing this memorial of Bill. Although I work at Gardner Middle School, I actually met Bill at Harvard Forest. We started our association with Harvard Forest at the same time. I have seen his endless work with leaf buds out by our vernal pool. He was so dedicated to the environment and his students. A wonderful mentor and person. I was saddened by his passing.

  4. This note hit home. It is very sad, but I am glad that you sent it.
    Your blog post was a real tribute.
