Hitchcock Center to Host Eastern White Pine Film

Our latest New England Forests film, "Eastern White Pine- the Tree Rooted in American History," will be presented at the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst, MA, on December 4, 2019, at 7pm. 

This will be a free event (donations to Hitchcock appreciated!), open to the public. 

Pre-registration (here) is appreciated and advisable (our last film event at Hitchcock filled the house and had a long waiting list). 

(The film will premiere at the Cinestudio theater in Hartford, CT, November 21, 2019.)

 The one-hour documentary uses vintage images, new footage, and aerial views to tell the 4-century story of the eastern white pine's critical contribution to America's founding and history. The white pine's significance to wildlife and people is related by famed Minnesota wildlife biologist Lynn Rogers; Trinity College neuroscientist Susan Masino; and nationally known old-growth forest expert Bob Leverett.

Following the film, there will be a Q&A session with a panel comprised of Bob Leverett, co-author of the Sierra Guide to Ancient Forests of the Northeast; botanist Jared Lockwood; and naturalist/filmmaker Ray Asselin.

Further screenings of the film are scheduled for other venues and will be announced on this blog.

More information and a short trailer can be found in our September 7, 2019 post (click here).
