December 9: Arbornaut Meg Lowman Lecture/ 7 p.m.

Experience “life in the treetops” in this extraordinary live storytelling event by globe-traveling arbornaut Dr. Margaret (Canopy Meg) Lowman.  Presented by Elmira College, this free event isn’t a lecture, it isn’t a webinar — it’s an hour-long, intimate talk by one of the world’s most foremost authorities on life in the “Eighth Continent” — aka forest canopies.

Meg Lowman in trees“Canopy Meg” will speak about her discoveries of biodiversity in forest canopies, sharing her first climb in Australian rain forests in 1979 with a home-made slingshot and harness — an experience that launched her on a lifetime of canopy discovery and forest conservation.

Dr. Lowman, Executive Director and co-founder of the TREE Foundation, will take the audience on a global tour of forest canopy hotspots across the world, where she conducts long-term research and education programs. And, she’ll share her passion for her most recent effort — to conserve the last 5% of forests in northern Ethiopia.
