Harvard Forest to Screen Old-Growth Forest Film

Our 2018 old-growth forest film, "The Lost Forests of New England," will be screened at Harvard Forest's Fisher Museum on the evening of July 10, at 7pm. The one-hour film tells the story of central New England's pre-settlement forests, factors that led to the nearly complete clearing of those forests, and the discovery of remnants of those wonderful woodlands.

Following the showing of the film, there will be a panel of experts (many of whom appear in the film) present to make brief statements and to answer questions from the audience.

The panel will include David Foster, Director of Harvard Forest; Bob Leverett, old-growth forest expert; David Orwig, forest ecologist at Harvard Forest; Heidi Ricci, Assistant Director of Advocacy at Mass Audubon; Bill Moomaw, Professor Emeritus of International Environmental Policy at the Fletcher School, Tufts University; and others yet to be confirmed.

Join us to learn the many ways New England will benefit from an increase in natural, timeless, old-growth forests.

The event is free and open to the public. Fisher Museum is located at 324 North Main Street (Rt 32), Petersham, MA. Directions are available at the museum's website.
