Speaker: Andrea Jaeger “The Invisible Forest”
February 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
THE INVISIBLE FOREST — FROM BACKYARD FOREST TO WORLD BIOME CONNECTEDNESS, CONSERVATION, AND THE WORLD SIGNIFICANCE OF AMERICA’S
GREAT EASTERN FOREST.
Our home biome, the world’s temperate broadleaf forest, is one of the most disturbed biomes on the earth, and certainly the most invisible. The Arc of Appalachia’s primary educational mission is to inspire residents in Ohio to identify with the living forest as their first and foremost home in the world, have a stake in the Forest’s health and future, and feel the connectedness across the Forest’s vast geographic territory spanning three continents – thereby connecting our backyard forest with the entire world. Andrea Jaeger will provide a brief overview of the Arc of Appalachia’s conservation work in our home-sweet-biome and the many outstanding recreational and educational opportunities the organization offers.
Andrea Jaeger has been part of the Arc of Appalachia’s team since August, 2016. She serves as a coordinator of the Arc’s education programs, and assists with land acquisition through outreach and grant writing and implementation.
