New book - Nature's Temples - has been released!

New book - Nature's Temples - has been released!

I wrote this book -- with the help of many experts -- because I wanted to share what scientists have learned about old-growth forests. Bottom line? These left-alone forests are much richer in biodiversty than forests that have been managed. I hope this book helps people across the planet make the case for why "their" favorite forest should be preserved. 

I wrote it to be useful, not necessarily to be a big seller, but I have been so pleased that the New York Times took note of it, and it made it to Amazon's #1 spot for new releases in the natural resources category.

Join Dr. Joan Maloof, founder and executive director of the Old-Growth Forest Network on Friday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m., at the Whallonsburg Grange for a discussion about old-growth forests: what they are; where they are; and how we can preserve them. Dr. Maloof will talk about the current status of the earth’s forests, particularly, the ancient forests in the Adirondacks and eastern US.  Then she’ll share the Old-Growth Forest Network’s vision for protecting the remaining and future old-growth forests.
CATS is co-sponsoring this event with the Eddy Foundation, Northeast Wilderness Trust, and the Wildlands Network. Representatives from each organization will be on hand to discuss the forest-saving work of their organizations and answer questions. Forest owners, especially those with tracts of older trees, are encouraged to attend along with tree lovers of all ages to learn about and support the growth and preservation of older forests.  The event is free and open to the public. If you have further questions about this event please call (518-962-2287) or EMAIL Champlain Area Trails.
