Thursday August 24th at 7pm: Tragic Hopefulness: Remembering George Perkins Marsh in a Time of Climate Change

John Elder (Professor Emeritus, Middlebury College): Over the last 250 years, Vermont has seen periods of intense deforestation and subsequent reforestation.  Parallel with such dramatic changes in the land, we have experienced a significant evolution in our own understanding and appreciation of the Northern Forest.  Come join John Elder for a reflection on the pertinence of pioneering Vermont conservationist George Perkins Marsh to the ecological challenges of our own day.
