VNPS Monthly Meeting Lecture: Oct 20th, 7:30pm, Green Spring Gardens
Hear Dr. Joan Maloof's impassioned plea to preserve and support the few untouched stretches of forest that remain east of the Mississippi River. Professor Maloof will discuss her new book, "Among the Ancients: Adventures in the Eastern Old Growth Forests," including descriptions of how 26 majestic forests and their rich diversity of life persevere despite the challenges of modern development. She also will illustrate the vital link between these old-growth forests and humanity's survival. This program is co-sponsored with the Fairfax County Master Naturalists.
