Earth Week: Joan Maloof

Date: 5:00pm - 6:30pm EDT April 17, 2013

Joan Maloof, Salisbury University, will address our relationship to the natural world through her lecture titled: “Talking about Trees: How are we all connected? And how do we Respond?” This lecture will take place at 5 pm in the Egg, Hodson Hall, with a book signing to follow. Like all of the Earth Week events, this lecture is free and open to the public.

Joan Maloof, founder and director of the Old-Growth Forest Network, will come to Washington College to lecture on the importance of trees and how we are all connected. Her book, Teaching the Trees: Lessons from the Forest (University of Georgia Press, 2005) won Honorable Mention from the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment. Her second book, Among the Ancients: Adventures in the Eastern Old-Growth Forests (Ruka Press, 2011) was an Eric Hoffer Book Award Finalist. Maloof is a Professor Emeritus at Salisbury University in Maryland. 

We are pleased to invite Joan Maloof to Washington College as a part of Earth Week 2013. Earth Week is designed to promote sustainability and responsible use of the natural environment through lectures and events. The Center for Environment and Society is proud to sponsor Joan Maloof and all of the events related to Earth Week 2013.
