Thursday March 5, 5:30pm Susan Masino: "Proforestation for People and the Planet," Everyone is welcome. Just got scheduled. 5:30 pm in McConnell 103, Smith College, Northampton, MA. Feel free to share. Proforestation for people and the planet. Forests evolved before dinosaurs. They protect biodiversity, clean our water and air, and mitigate multiple effects of climate change. Massachusetts is blessed with incredible forests and other natural areas, and protecting natural ecosystems has never been more important. We know we also need places for respite, and new research shows that forests support our health – especially brain health. It is urgent to heed new science so we can strike a balance among responsible resource use, high quality long-term research, and proforestation – a nature based solution that protects ecosystems and maximizes benefits for people and for the planet.
