Forests: Repairing the Past, Defending the Future, by Chris Bolgiano
“The situation with privately owned forests is one of extremely fragmented woodlands and ownerships plus variable state regs that are mostly hands off with regard to protection of existing forests, making them incredibly difficult to target. I addressed both of these issues in the presentation I was invited to give for the Global Climate Commons Panel session of the Appalachian Studies Assn. annual conference, scheduled to be held this past March in Lexington, KY, but was cancelled at the last minute.” ~Chris Bolgiano
Luckily for us, Chris made this video of what she was to present in Lexington.
