Joan Maloof has likely been to more old-growth forests across the US than anyone alive today. She was so inspired by what she saw in these forests that she founded a national organization to preserve them and help make them accessible for the next generation. From the towering Redwoods of the Oregon and California Coast to the Cypress groves of Florida and the oak forests of New England, Joan will take you on a journey through the incredible differences and striking similarities of the country's remaining ancient forests. We learn what makes the ancient forests so special, where they are located in Oregon, and how you can help the Old-Growth Forest Network grow.
We also hear from Lauren Anderson about Oregon Wild's forest climate campaign and efforts to protect old-growth forests across the Pacific Northwest.
