Sun streaming through the trees at Valley View Forest.
We’re pleased to announce a new opportunity to learn together in a free, online series this winter. In Discovering the Forest, an offshoot of the popular Nature in Your Neighborhood program, we’ll learn about community forests: how we can tell if they are healthy, ways we can ensure they thrive, how they nourish communities, and how we can grow strong and resilient together.
Forest ecosystems are characterized by fascinating relationships between wildlife, plants, trees, water, and air. Add human use and economies into the mix, and the dynamics at play become even more complex. Join us as we set out to explore these interconnections and ask, how does a community forest thrive for the good of all?
Local community members will guide our learning each month, sharing their knowledge about the plants, trees, animals and birds that call forests home, and highlighting the ways we benefit from forests and can steward their abundant resources for the future.
