Twilight of the Hemlocks and Beeches
Award winning author and photographer Tim Palmer will present a slide show based on his 2018 book, Twilight of the Hemlocks and Beeches, published by Penn State University Press.
With stunning photographs taken throughout the range of the Eastern Hemlock and American Beech, the author shows the irreplaceable beauty of these magnificent trees, and he explains the invasion of exotic insects and pathogens that are tragically decimating one of the most beloved forest types in eastern America.
Still hopeful, Palmer writes, "The efforts to protect and restore these forests provide guidance, motivation, and inspiration to better care for our forests everywhere."
Join us and author Tim Palmer for this important and revealing program on September 27th at Marsh Hall in an event sponsored by Connecticut Forest & Park Association and the Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry.
Admission is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided, but is first come, first served!
