Joan Maloof to speak about Old Growth Forests

May 27, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Joan-Maloof-500wJoan Maloof, founder of Old Growth Forest Network and author of the book – “Among the Ancients: Adventures in the Eastern Old-Growth Forests.” is coming to Fox Haven on May 27th at 7:00 p.m.

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 – including the latest scientific findings. She will also discuss the successful expansion of the Old-Growth Forest Network – an organization formed to ensure that each county in the US capable of supporting forest growth will preserve at least one forest open to the public. We welcome you to join in this discussion of special forests and how they might be saved for the next generation.
