VIRTUAL – “The Hidden Life of Trees” with Peter Wohlleben Online
Are trees social beings? In The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate―Discoveries from A Secret World, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers.
Join The Community Library and the Wood River Land Trust for this virtual presentation by Wohlleben, who will be joining us live from his home in Germany, as he shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland. After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again. A Q&A will follow, and the audience will be able to ask their questions via the Livestream chat.
This program will air and be available for later viewing on the Library’s Livestream.
In partnership with the Wood River Land Trust.
