Show Notes

Joan Maloof, Professor Emeritus at Salisbury University, founded the Old-Growth Forest Network to preserve, protect and promote the country's few remaining stands of old-growth forest. She spends her time lecturing, writing, visiting forests, assisting private landowners, and supporting local groups trying to protect community forests from development.

In this episode, Joan shares:

  • How to identify old growth forests
  • How to recommend that a forest becomes part of the protected network
  • Map of protected forests within the Network
  • The 100th Dedicated Forest (Opal Creek, Oregon)
  • Michigan Old Growth Forests (Hartwick Pines, Porcupine Mountains)
