July events

July 8, 7 p.m.: The Journeys of Trees

Can forests migrate fast enough to adapt to changing climate? Should humans help them?

Zach St. George, author of “The Journeys of Trees”  will join us through Zoom from his home in Baltimore. St. George  is a freelance reporter focused on climate change and conservation. His writing has appeared in Scientific American, The Atlantic, Outside, Businessweek, Orion, Guernica, Smithsonian, Pacific Standard, USA Today, The San Francisco Chronicle, Bay Nature, and many others. He has been visiting the woods of Wilmot, NH all his life. 

“A deeply researched book that is liable to change your perspective on the magnificent, tall, woody creatures that cover one-third of the Earth's land... [St. George] brings a flair for gathering and distilling esoteric scientific findings into lively, accessible explanations.”
