      The Lost Forests of New England Film Screening

      The Lost Forests of New England Film Screening Followed by a panel with Filmmaker Ray Asselin and Bob Leverett and Bill Moomaw Wednesday, January 23,  7pm- 9pm Registration and Donations Appreciated. What were New England’s woodlands like prior to 1600? What do the small old-growth remnants look like today and what special values, if any, do they hold? Lost Forests of New England addresses these and other questions in an effort to bring clarity to a subject that is often lost in the mists of time. Producer Ray Asselin, a naturalist and filmmaker from Wilbraham, Massachusetts, narrates the video. The film features key scientists and naturalists associated with the discovery and study of New England’s remaining old-growth woodlands. These experts discuss the structure, ecology, history, and value of New England’s oldest forests, and their future prospects. The audience is treated to a visual tour of woodlands that have endured for centuries, through compelling images that compare and contrast the old growth sites with today’s highly altered landscape. The result is a side-by-side comparison between original and reshaped woodlands that makes a strong case for preserving the ancient remnants. This program is free to the community thanks to the support of our sponsors:
