Nature’s Temples: The Complex World of Old-Growth Forests with Joan Maloof
Wed, May 24, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Join writer, ecologist, and conservationist Joan Maloof for an evening presentation and discussion of her best-selling new book Nature’s Temples: the Complex World of Old-Growth Forests.
An old-growth forest is one that has formed naturally over a long period of time with little or no disturbance from humankind. They are increasingly rare and largely misunderstood.
In Nature’s Temples, Joan Maloof, the director of the Old-Growth Forest Network, makes a heartfelt and passionate case for their importance.
What emerges is a portrait of a beautiful, intricate, and fragile ecosystem that now exists only in scattered fragments.
The lecture begins at 7:00 p.m., followed by a Q&A and book-signing. You'll have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book, if you choose.
