The Bay State Historical League honored Brian Donahue, professor and chair of the environmental studies program, with the 2015 Bay State Legacy Award for his research on New England forestry and farming. The award is conferred to honor contributions to the interpretation and public presentation of Massachusetts’ history.
Last summer, Donahue was the lead writer of “A New England Food Vision,” an agricultural plan for the region to produce half its own food by 2060 by re-purposing forests and pastures.
In addition, the Thoreau Foundation has awarded Donahue and a $31,000 grant to support undergraduate research in Walden Woods. Donahue will use part of the grant to expand undergraduate field teaching and research at Brandeis.
