Wild Nature Speaker Series: Celebrating Our Ancient Forests

Join us at the library on the first Sunday of the month at 4:00 pm in November, December, January, and February for a series of speakers who will talk about the natural world and inspire us to enjoy and protect it.

Celebrating Our Ancient Forests Through Words and Action
with Joan Maloof
Sunday, November 4, 4:00 pm
Community Room

As someone who has probably visited more US old-growth forests than anyone alive today, Joan Maloof will discuss what remains of these never-logged forests and what makes them so special–including the latest scientific findings. She’ll also tell us about the successful expansion of the Old-Growth Forest Network, an organization she founded to ensure that each county in the US will preserve at least one forest open to the public. In addition, Maloof will discuss her writing process and how each of her books was ‘born.’ Maloof, a Professor Emeritus at Salisbury University in Maryland, is the author of four books about forests: Teaching the Trees: Lessons from the Forest; Among the Ancients: Adventures in the Eastern Old-Growth Forests; Nature’s Temples: The Complex World of Old-Growth Forests; and The Living Forest: A Visual Journey into the Heart of the Forest. Please join us for this discussion of special forests and how they might be saved for the next generation.
