Time: 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Location: Mark Landy Party Hall at Gateway City Arts
In celebration of Earth Day, come enjoy a film showing of "The Lost Forests of New England: Conserving Our Remnant Old-Growth Forests."
This documentary by Ray Asselin includes stunning footage of our region's rarely seen old-growth trees, and tells the story of central New England's old-growth forests: what they once were, what changes have taken place since European settlers arrived, and what our remnant old-growth stands look like today. Bob Leverett, co-founder of the Native Tree Society and an old-growth tree expert, is featured in this fascinating film.
Following the 1-hour screening, there will be a Q&A featuring Bob Leverett, Ray Asselin, and botanist Jared Lockwood, hosted by Lee Halasz, Kestrel's TerraCorps Regional Conservation Coordinator.
