1 p.m. EST
Join us tomorrow afternoon for a conversation with Lacy M. Johnson about American history and the longleaf pine.
Johnson will be expanding on her essay about the longleaf pine’s integral role in the American slave trade, featured in the Autumn 2022 issue of Orion, and will discuss the ways in which trees bear witness to the evolution of culture and what they may be able to tell us about ourselves now. She will also discuss how her research into coastal flooding has expanded her understanding of how rising water levels affect trees, and what people can do to protect the landscapes they love.
The conversation will be led by Mary Evelyn Tucker, coauthor of Journey of the Universe and cofounder of Yale’s Forum on Religion and Ecology.
This event is presented with The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment. The Zoom link will be emailed prior to the event.
