OLD GROWTH FORESTS: A VIRTUAL TOUR OF ANCIENT WOODLANDS

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Learn about old growth forests

Tuesday, November 17, 1-2 pm, online via Zoom

Old growth forests are complex places—ancient, mysterious, and, frankly, messy. Learn about old growth forests in Vermont and in the northeast—what they are, why they are important in the face of climate change, and how you can recognize them.

Join Jericho and Vermont Land Trust’s Liz Thompson and VLT's David McMath as they explore some old forests of Vermont and examine their special habitats. They will guide us to:

  • a cedar swamp with old trees
  • an old yellow birch grove
  • an ancient black gum swamp
  • a cliff forest, a blown-down forest
  • an old growth rich woods that you can literally drive to.

They will talk about the rich history of these places and the many benefits they provide.

And you will learn how to recognize old growth when you see it. Who knows? Maybe there is an old growth forest waiting to be discovered in your town, or even on your property.
