Learning has turned over a new leaf

What is Pando?

Pando is the name of the largest—and possibly oldest—organism on earth, a massive colony of aspen trees in the midwestern United States that has survived for over one million years on its expansive system of roots.

Pando is Latin for “I spread,” and we believe this description is just as fitting for an educator’s ever-reaching impact as it is for a sprawling network of aspen roots.
