New England Forestry Foundation Annual Meeting
Wednesday, June 5th, Beginning at 4pm
Boston Public Library, Boston, MA
New England Forestry Foundation is pleased to present our annual meeting, awards ceremony, and keynote presentation at the Boston Public Library on Wednesday, June 5. The event will take place in the library's Rabb Lecture Hall from 4:00-5:30pm.
Our keynote speaker is Dr. Stephen Kellert, author of Birthright: People and Nature in the Modern World.
In this engaging book discussion, Dr. Stephen Kellert, a pioneer in the field of biophilia, sets forth an account of nature's powerful influence on the quality of our lives. How we value nature will forever dictate how much of it we eventually will conserve. Dr. Kellert's work can provide us with new ways to reveal why our work at New England Forestry Foundation is essential to New Englanders' overall quality of life.
