Spectacular Use of Wood at UMass Design Building

The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams will host a Forests & Climate Change talk by Frank Lowenstein on February 26th at 7 p.m. at Murdock Hall.

Lowenstein, Chief Conservation Officer at the New England Forestry Foundation, will present a talk titled, “Forests and carbon in a larger frame.”

New England is the most heavily forested region of the United States, and our forests represent a critical resource in the fight against climate change.

How should we use them to best reduce the risks to a sustainable future? How do new technologies of wood construction affect this calculus, and what patterns of living do they make possible for the future?

Lowenstein will address these questions and provide a global-to-local look at the use, management, and protection of forests.

This free presentation will take place at 7 p.m. on January 28th in room 218 of Murdock Hall on the MCLA campus.
