Nature’s Temples: The Complex World of Old-Growth Forests with Joan Maloof
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.
