In an effort to control the spread of coronavirus and support social distancing practices recommended by the CDC, the DLC and our partners have decided to postpone the Tom Wessels talk. We apologize for any disappointment; please know we are acting with the health and safety of the community in mind.
Tom Wessels: Coevolution, A Model for Sustainability
Sunday April 5th – 1pm to 3pm
Tom Wessels, the rock star of ecologists, will talk about ‘Coevolution’. Did you know that trees communicate with each other underground via a sophisticated network of roots and fungi? Come and learn about the ‘wood wide web’, and more! This one-hour FREE talk at Trinity Pawling School’s Gardiner Theater will be followed by a one-hour walk in the woods*.
Tom Wessels last visited Pawling 8 years ago, when more than 200 people were mesmerized by his talk. He is a terrestrial ecologist and Professor Emeritus at Antioch University New England, where he founded the masters program in Conservation Biology. He has conducted workshops on ecology and sustainability throughout the country for over three decades, and is author of numerous books including: Reading the Forested Landscape, The Granite Landscape, The Myth of Progress and Forest Forensics. He will bring books to sell at the event.
