Please join Dr. Margaret Lowman, Executive Director of the TREE Foundation, Thursday, January 14, 2021, from 11 am to 12:30 p.m., for an urgent discussion on “Our Forests: Vital & Vulnerable.” This live webinar forum will present renowned scientists and ecologists and will end with a live Q&A period from 12:30 to 1 p.m. (All times EST.) Register here: Sign me up to learn how to save forests!
Presented by The City Gardens Club of New York City, the topic of forests was chosen because the organization recognizes that we are living in a critical moment when experts worldwide are warning that we are running out of time to reverse course and establish a sustainable way of life on our planet.
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), our planet is losing 48 football fields of forest every minute. Please join us for this critically important conversation and learn what we can all do collectively and individually to stop forest destruction in our communities and globally.
