Earth Day Film Showing: “The Lost Forests of New England”
April 21, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In celebration of Earth Day, come enjoy a film showing of “The Lost Forests of New England: Conserving Our Remnant Old-Growth Forests” at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke in partnership with Gateway City Live.
This documentary by Ray Asselin includes stunning footage of our region’s rarely seen old-growth trees, and tells the story of central New England’s old-growth forests: what they once were, what changes have taken place since European settlers arrived, and what our remnant old-growth stands look like today. Bob Leverett, co-founder of the Native Tree Society and an old-growth tree expert is featured in this fascinating film.
Following the 1-hour film, there will be a Q&A featuring Bob Leverett and Ray Asselin, and botanist Jared Lockwood, hosted by Lee Halasz, Kestrel’s TerraCorp Regional Conservation Coordinator.
You can also enjoy an Easter brunch before the film, between 10 am and 3 pm, at the Bistro at Gateway City Arts. Contact the Bistro for details/reservations.
This program is free and open to the public, but registration is strongly recommended.
