    • An Evening at the Hook Lecture Series – Nature’s Temples: Biodiversity and Old-Growth Forests

      Old Growth Forest

      Please join Dr. Joan Maloof, the Founder and Director of the nonprofit organization Old-Growth Forest Network, for tonight’s lecture. Her organization has created a network of forests across the US that will remain forever unlogged and open to the public. In her presentation she will discuss what remains of these never-logged forests and what makes them so special – including the latest scientific findings. She will also discuss the successful expansion of the Old-Growth Forest Network – an organization formed to ensure that each county in the US capable of supporting forest growth will preserve at least one forest open to the public. We welcome you to join in this discussion of special forests and how they might be saved for the next generation.
