The Canadian Association for the Club of Rome, as part of its educational outreach program, is pleased to invite you to a special preview showing of a new documentary film: CALL OF THE FOREST: THE FORGOTTEN WISDOM OF TREES, featuring Diana Beresford-Kroeger.
Diana Beresford-Kroeger is an scientist and environmentalist from the Ottawa area, and she is also one of Tree Ottawa’s champions! Her new documentary, Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees follows her journey in 'touring some of the earth’s last, great forests, from Japan, Ireland, Germany, to the United States and Canada, meeting many of the world’s ancient trees and educating people about their history and legacy – a history and legacy that is deeply entwined with our grand and benevolent neighbours, the trees'.
Tree Ottawa will also be announcing a Spring Book Club launch in May, featuring Diana’s book, The Global Forest: Forty Ways Trees Can Save Us, which will be sold at the event. To learn more about Tree Ottawa and how you can help Ottawa's trees, visit our website at treeottawa.org.
The film will be shown at the Mayfair Theatre on Thursday, April 14, 2016. Doors open at 5:40 and the film will start at 6:05pm. The viewing of the film will be followed by a Q&A session with Diana.
