Old-Growth Forests: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow by Joan Maloof.
Old-Growth Forests: yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Joan Maloof has probably visited more US old-growth forests than anyone alive today. In this presentation she will discuss what remains of these never-logged forests and what makes them so special -- for humans and for other life forms. She will also discuss the Old-Growth Forest Network – an organization she founded to help encourage each county in the United States to preserve at least one mature forest, and make it available for public visitation. Maloof is the author of Teaching the Trees: Lessons from the Forest and Among the Ancients: Adventures in the Eastern Old-Growth Forests. She is a Professor Emeritus at Salisbury University where she formerly taught biology and environmental studies.
