The Hidden Life of Trees
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 - 10:00am to 11:30am
$17 / 9.50 A walk in the woods will never be the same once you have heard Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees. The professional forester from Germany has already sold millions of books in Europe, sharing revelatory information about our forests. Trees can count, learn, remember, nurse sick neighbours and even warn each other of danger by sending electrical signals across a fungal network known as the “Wood Wide Web.” Trees also keep the ancient stumps of long-felled companions alive for centuries by feeding them through their roots. This scientifically rigorous and simultaneously magical event will change the way you look at our woodlands forever.
Suitable for Grades 8-12 and adults
