Dana will also share iformation about The Mother Tree Project, which investigates forest renewal practices that protect biodiversity, carbon storage, and forest regeneration as the climate changes. On a woodland walk that follows the presentation, participants may choose to see the forest for hte trees and contemplate their wisdom.
