Event: Tom Wessels – The Importance of Old Growth Forests

When: 7:00 – 8:30 pm on Thursday, March 16, 2017
Where: Unitarian Church, 130 Main Street, Montpelier, VT

Tom Wessels, faculty emeritus at Antioch University New England and author of a number of books, including Reading the Forested Landscape, will discuss the importance of old-growth forests as a functional part of our regional landscape—one that is presently under-represented. Wessels will explore the role of old growth forests using the principle of self-organization and its relationship to ecological succession, as well as our current understanding of soils.

This event is part of the Vermont Natural Resource Council‘s Seward Weber Lecture Series co-sponsored by Audubon Vermont, and the Vermont Land Trust.

Underwriting support for this lecture comes from VNRC, Northeast Wilderness Trust, and Green Mountain Conservancy.
