April 27 – 7 p.m. – The Timeless Connection of People and Trees – Tales from the Wood-Wide Web – Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library.
We see trees as individuals. But like us, each tree is part of a social network, relying on that network for growth, health and success. The forest network is largely invisible to us, but recent studies show a Wood-Wide-Web (WWW) of relationships. That WWW that has been critical to our survival … has built empires and cartels … inspired revolutions and national conservation movements. Join Erik Mollenhauer as he shares the natural and cultural history of some trees found here in Gloucester County. Advanced registration required: https://www.hegganlibrary.org.
