Author Talks About Community of Trees at Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Thu 6/10 @ 7PM

Dr. Suzanne Simard, professor of forest ecology at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Forestry, works on issues of plant communication and intelligence. Her latest book, Finding the Mother Tree, suggests that forests are actually interdependent social communities that communicate by underground networks. In the book, she theorizes that “trees perceive and recognize neighbors, compete and cooperate, learn and adapt their behaviors, remember the past, and have agency about the future.”

Simard will join naturalist/horticulturalist Garrett Ormiston of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, when the museum presents a webinar discussion of the book and its premise. Following the discussion, there’ll be an audience Q&A. Signed copies of the book will be available to audience members, thanks to Loganberry Books.

Tickets are $8 for CMNH members, $10 for non-members. Register for the program here.
