“The Radical Forest Manager” online presentation
January 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Saturday, January 22, 2022
7:00 – 8:00 p.m. ET
“The Radical Forest Manager” at the Green Mountain Club Burlington Section Annual Meeting
In a changing climate, forests are both an asset – helping slow and mitigate the effects of climate change by absorbing the carbon we emit – and under threat. At the same time, climate change, resource extraction and environmental degradation threatens peoples, species and ecosystems worldwide. While some of these problems may seem remote, is it possible that Vermont’s forests have a broader role to play in crafting a just and sustainable world?
In this presentation, Ethan Tapper, the Chittenden County Forester for the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation will discuss the role that forests and forest management play in our past, present and future, with an eye on social and environmental justice in Vermont and across the globe. Tapper will discuss how responsible, ecological forest management can help support justice, equity, healthy communities and healthy ecosystems here in Vermont and world-wide.
