Field Trips

A first attempt at a video slide-show..
ENTS- Having been inspired by Jenny's videos of trees,
birds, and Central Park, I've made one myself---not about trees
specifically, but with many trees included( I asked Jenny to "preview" this,
and she gave the sign of approval!). So here it is, based on a trip last
October, to a cabin in Ontario I own with a dear friend. I hope you like

Forest fire float-plane video
ENTS- Here is a very short video of two Twin Otter float-planes suppressing
a small forest fire on the lake where we have cabins in Ontario---they would
circle the lake, scoop up water, and release on the burn. The fire was put
out without much damage.

Ancient Forest Exploration and Research
http://www.ancientforest.org/http://www ... orest.org/ Ancient
Forest Exploration and Research (AFER) is a non-profit organization
dedicated to scientific research and education related to ancient and old
growth forests. Our website contains maps, information about ancient forest
and our research results. Ancient Forest Exploration & Research (AFER) was
created in 1992 by Dr. Peter Quinby and a small board of directors, to
address the loss of Ontario's forest heritage by conducting scientific
research, and education of the public.
Ontario's Oldest Trees Ontario's trees are often older than you'd
think. Ancient cedars growing on the Niagara Escarpment germinated over 1300
years ago, and hemlock and yellow birch trees in Algonquin Park are more
than 400 years old. The table below will surely surprise you, but even the
trees listed here are probably not the oldest ones on Ontario's landscape.
You can learn more about Ontario's remarkable trees, and our up-coming book,
by going to our http://www.ancientforest.org/oldgrowthbook.htm
old-growth forests page.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
