Speaking for the Forests at the Essex, NY, Grange October 7th at 7pm
October 7, 2016, 7:00 p.m. 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.
