Intelligent Trees 

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 10:30am


Do trees speak to each other? Do they have family ties and care for their young? German forester Peter Wohlleben, author of 'The Hidden Life of Trees' and scientist Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia, Canada) have been observing and investigating the communication between trees over decades. The museum will be showing the Vimeo  'Intelligent Trees' which features the main observations that are covered in Peter Wohlleben's book.  The presentation is free and the museum is handicapped accessible. Please remember to contact the Museum Director beforehand so we set up enough chairs for everyone. Museum contact information is: Director@marionmuseum.org or call us at 508-748-2098 and leave a message prior to the date of the program.
