Earth Day Film Showing: “The Lost Forests of New England”
April 21 @ 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.
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, 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.
