As we reported last week, several members of the Forum team were in Vermont to experience the totality of the solar eclipse this past Monday. Many flooded into the state from all around to see the big event, but we were lucky to attend a smaller gathering, populated largely by locals (of which I am one!). The day was brilliant, the energy light and hopeful.


The full solar eclipse will occur this Monday, April 8, and up here in Vermont where my family and I have made our home, we will be basking in the path of full totality. Several members of the Forum team will be gathering to experience this exciting event together, and it will indeed be my first-ever full eclipse. 

Last Wednesday, Orion Magazine, the Yale Forest Forum, and the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology held the next in a series of online tree-related events to celebrate Orion's volume Old Growth. Our own Mary Evelyn Tucker was in conversation with poet Ellen Bass about “The Poetics of Forests.”
