1.5 Category 1 Continuing Forester Education Credits by SAF are pre-approved.

This is one of several in our Communicating Forestry webinar series, by Guild members.

In this seminar, interdisciplinary scholar and former forester Jason M. Brown will explore the ways that trees and forests have shaped myth, religion, and spirituality throughout history. In addition, he will discuss how the various cultures that form around trees and forests inform the ongoing conflicts over forestry and forest management. Discussion will explore how understanding these perspectives might contribute to better public dialogue and management processes.

Jason M. Brown is a Lecturer with the Department of Global Humanities and also teaches with the School of Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. He grew up in California and studied anthropology as an undergraduate. He earned joint Masters degrees from Yale in forestry and theology. He writes at holyscapes.org.
