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.

  • 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)
