masino head shot 2016-1

The link between forests and brain health is a public policy imperative: we face increasing costs for disorders ranging from Alzheimer’s disease to addiction, and forests offer exercise, mindfulness and stress reduction. We are still discovering new species, and forests are a likely source of new antibiotics. They have already produced new drugs for seizures and pain, and US veterans suffering from PTSD can spend time in the forest and reduce medication use. For these and many other reasons, natural forests should be protected and accessible to citizens across the state.

Letting it be: What recovering forests do when we are not looking.

mt-greylock-state-reservation-002.jpg

Trees are constantly active and recovering. This activity has global effects, serving to regulate the atmosphere, mobilize nutrients, shelter and feed other species and even create local weather in forests all over the world. This talk will explore some hidden processes in our local forests by telescoping the events of deep time and “microscoping” the familiar concept of photosynthesis to show that forests are more than just beautiful to look at.
