Here is scientist Dr. Nalini Nadkarni Ted Talk on Conserving the Canopies. Tree canopies are delicate ecosystems that help keep our global climate stable.
She positively connects people with trees. She is positively brilliant!
For example, I had no idea people are stealing moss from the Pacific Northwest forests to make floral arrangements. It’s a huge industry! As part of the solution to the devastation of moss beds by this industry, she began teaching prisoners how to grow moss and conduct moss research.
I wish I had taken a program with her when I was a student at The Evergreen State College.
Evergreen+women in science+tree canopies=awesomeness. Watch this video:
And here she talks about Trees and Spirituality. Excellent!
