Eastern White Pine Documentary Film at Arcadia

"Eastern White Pine- the Tree Rooted in American History," our latest New England Forests documentary film, will be presented at the Mass Audubon Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary in Easthampton, MA, on Wednesday, January 15, 2020.

Old Growth Eastern White Pines

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. You may be surprised to learn how significant a role the tree played in this country's formation. And the white pine's importance to wildlife and people is related by three experts in their respective fields: famed Minnesota wildlife biologist Lynn Rogers; Trinity College neuroscientist Professor 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; Professor Susan Masino; botanist Jared Lockwood; and naturalist/filmmaker Ray Asselin.

Registration for the 7pm program is required (here); don't wait to register, these events have been very popular!

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).
