“The Lost Forests of New England” Film Screening & Panel Discussion

July 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Harvard Forest invites you to a film screening and panel discussion on “The Lost Forests of New England: Conserving Our Remnant Old-Growth Forests,” a 2018 film by Ray Asselin, on July 10, at 7 p.m.

The film, replete with stunning footage of our region’s rarely seen old-growth trees, 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.

Following the 1-hour film screening, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A featuring conservation leaders, wilderness thinkers, and scientists whose work focuses on old-growth forests – and their preservation – in New England. The panelists will include:

  • Ray Asselin, Filmmaker, New England Forests blog
  • David Foster, Director, Harvard Forest
  • Scott Jackson, Board Chairman, Kestrel Land Trust
  • Bob Leverett, Co-founder, Native Tree Society
  • William Moomaw, Professor of Int’l Environmental Policy at Tufts University’s Fletcher School
  • David Orwig, Forest Ecologist, Harvard Forest
  • Heidi Ricci, Assistant Director of Advocacy, Mass Audubon


This event is free and open to the public at the Fisher Museum, Harvard Forest, in Petersham. No registration required.
