Maine Forests and Their Importance to People, Nature, and Our Climate
June 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Co-sponsored by CREA and Green Steps, this is the first in a series of presentations by speakers from the Nature Conservancy.
Maine is the most forested state in the nation, and its forest is the core of the largest remaining example of temperate deciduous-mixed forest in the Western Hemisphere. Come hear about the importance of Maine’s forest to our economy, our quality of life, and the natural world, and its vital importance for tackling climate change.
Mark Berry is the Forest Program Director for The Nature Conservancy in Maine, where he leads initiatives focused on the future of Maine’s forests. His prior experience includes leadership of Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park and Downeast Lakes Land Trust and management of a conservation area in Oregon for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
