This is a poster created for the 2019 annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union. Below is the accepted abstract of the poster:

The Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) network spans 28 sites across North America and beyond. Here we share work from two LTER sites in the northeastern US—the Harvard Forest, MA and the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, NH—where boundary organizations have been developing a framework for embedding effective public engagement and knowledge co-production into these long-term studies. Here we share this framework and how it has been developed and applied in a variety of contexts at the research-policy interface by two boundary organizations, the Science Policy Exchange and the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation. We discuss key opportunities with long-term research to push beyond one-off "engaged research" projects and siloed science communication efforts and to consider the cumulative impacts of efforts across the spectrum of public engagement, science communication, knowledge co-production, and policy integration.
