A reading with Lynda Mapes

Witness Tree: Seasons of Change with a Century-Old Oak

Thursday, November 2, 2017 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Lynda Mapes is an environmental journalist for the Seattle Times, an author, an explorer and reveler in the natural world, native plants and species of every sort. She is driven to go deep, look long, and stay awhile. Her photos, journalism and books are the result of a lifelong fascination with the natural world and our connection to it.  Maypes work from all five senses — and especially, the critical sixth: a sense of wonder. In her latest book, Witness Tree: Seasons of Change with a Century-Old Oak, she documents a year living at the Harvard Forest Long-Term Ecological Research site to explore the human and natural history of a single 100-year old oak tree while she was a Bullard Fellow.

 This reading is co-sponsored by the Long-Term Ecological Research program at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest and Grass Root Books.
