Forests and Carbon in a Larger Frame

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts | Murdock 218  -  Feb. 26, 2020, 7:00 pm

At a time when we are faced with worsening climate change and the sixth (human-caused) mass-extinction, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) is hosting a presentation by Frank Lowenstein, Chief Conservation Officer at New England Forestry Foundation, who will discuss the current science and explain the critical choices we have in how we manage our forests.

New England is the most heavily forested region of the United States, and our forests represent a critical resource in the fight against climate change. How should we use them to best reduce the risks to a sustainable future? How do new technologies of wood construction affect this calculus, and what patterns of living do they make possible for the future? Frank will address these questions and provide a global-to-local look at the use, management, and protection of forests.

The presentation will take place in room 218 of Murdock Hall on the MCLA campus. It is free and open to the public.
