Forests: Repairing the Past, Defending the Future
“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.
Chris’ latest article in Rewilding Earth: “Forest Forensics: Clues in the woods to historic crimes against nature, and the consequences today“
Mildly amusing nature writer Chris Bolgiano has written or edited six books, as well as travel and nature articles for the Washington Post, New York Times, Sierra, Audubon, Wilderness, and many other publications, as well as syndicated op-eds for the Chesapeake Bay Journal News Service. As Professor Emerita at James Madison University in Virginia, where she spent 25 years documenting local history, she now shamelessly uses her connections in the library for access to sources. She serves on the Rewilding Leadership Council, where her books are listed. www.chrisbolgiano.com
