Recovering Our Elemental Imagination - from NewMusicBox

Post by michael gatonska » Sun Aug 16, 2015 4:34 pm

Thought this may be of interest, and the unanswered question: "Could music be such a mediator to heal and reawaken our senses to the greater culture of life?"

The H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon, founded in 1948, is the most studied forest in the world. Sponsored by the National Forest Service, Oregon State University, and copious grants, the goal in the Andrews forest is both complex and utterly simple: study the forest ecosystem over time and use this knowledge to inform our relationship with it. This mandate has illuminated vast scientific insights and controversial ideas of policy and purpose. The Andrews forest is home to some of the last remaining old growth forest in the world (500-800 year old trees), and it inspires many long-term studies and programs as a result. One such program is the Long Term Ecological Reflections (LTER), an international project documenting how “humans and the forest change over time.” The LTER project in the Andrews Forest, which began more than a decade ago, is scheduled to last 200 years, from 2003-2203.
