Tuesday, June 8, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm – Wildlands and Woodlands Conservation Vision

In 2005 scientists associated with the Harvard Forest published a report: “Wildlands and Woodlands: A Vision for the Forests of Massachusetts.” The authors called for a bold new land protection effort to stave off accelerating forest fragmentation. Join David Foster, director of the Harvard Forest (and Polly Hill Arboretum research associate) on Tuesday, June 8, from 7:30 – 9 at the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Hall, pictured below, for this special lecture.  Receive a copy of the report and learn more about the group’s latest publication, “A Wildland and Woodland Vision for the New England Landscape: Local Conservation, Biodiversity and the Global Environment.” This report recognizes the important role of the region’s forests and farmlands and puts forth a conservation and management proposal benefiting our local and global environments. Foster will discuss the direct relevance to conservation planning on Martha’s Vineyard. Bring your questions and concerns. This lecture sponsored by Bartlett Tree Experts.  For more information, log on to www.pollyhillarboretum.org.
