“The Language of Trees” Event

Tara C. Trapani

We're very pleased to announce “The Language of Trees,” the third installment in the very popular webinar series on trees to celebrate Orion's anthology Old Growth. The next event will take place on Tuesday April 26 at 2pm EST.  The speakers in conversation will be Alison Hawthorne Deming and Kathleen Dean Moore, with the Forum's own Mary Evelyn Tucker moderating.  

Go here to register. The event will also be livestreamed on YouTube, and a recording (with closed captioning) will be made available to registrants. 


From the event site: 
“The Language of Trees” will feature a conversation between Alison Hawthorne Deming, author of Zoologies: On Animals and the Human Spirit, and Kathleen Dean Moore, author of Earth’s Wild Music: Celebrating and Defending the Songs of the Natural World. The event will foster a dialogue around the language of trees: how they communicate with one another, and how their futures are shaped by the language with which humans describe them. Moderating the event is Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-author of Journey of the Universe and co-founder of Yale’s Forum on Religion and Ecology.
