Event Details

On the eve of Earth Day, join us for a special lecture on forests! As carbon-storing powerhouses, forests are already lauded for their ability to fight climate change. But the benefits of conserving them go far beyond that. In this talk, SERC ecologist Jess Parker will highlight some of the lesser-known services forests are giving society today. Drawing on more than 30 years of research, he’ll reveal the many unseen ways forests are making our lives better, often at little or no cost to humans.

SERC's evening lectures take place in the Schmidt Conference Center every third Tuesday of the month at 7pm, January through October. They are free and open to all, though donations to support the lecture series are always appreciated. No advance registration needed.
