Author Kirk Hanson speaks on ecological forestry at the Library

June 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Griffin Bay Bookstore and the San Juan Island Library are proud to present educator and author Kirk Hanson on Saturday, June 1 at 6:00 pm at the Library. Kirk is the co-author, with Seth Zuckerman, of the new book A Forest of Your Own: A Handbook of Ecological Forestry. He works promoting ecological forestry – an approach that mimics natural processes wherever possible and treats the forest as a whole system. His new book explores all aspects of forest management. It covers everything from how to evaluate a piece of land before you buy it through implementing long-term plans that may include establishing new stands of trees, harvesting mushrooms as well as wood, and protecting your forests through wildfire risk reduction, climate change adaptation and conservation easements. It is a clear guide, loaded with helpful illustrations, addressing pros and cons of various species and how to best care for wildlife and the land. Griffin Bay Bookstore will be on hand so you can get your own copy signed by the author after the presentation at the library.
