A Talk with Charles Peters

The 2018 Earth Day Celebration at NYBG will be kicked off with a lecture by Charles Peters on his new book, Managing the Wild: Stories of People and Plants and Tropical Forests, co-published by The New York Botanical Garden Press and Yale University Press.

Drawn from ecologist Peters’ 35 years of fieldwork around the globe, the engaging stories in this book show how the best solutions for sustainable tropical forest management come from the people who live in them. No forest is pristine, as communities have been doing skillful, subtle forest management throughout the tropics for several hundred years.

Admission is free.

Please enter the Garden through the Mosholu Gate, 2950 Southern Blvd., Bronx NY, 10458, and check in at the LuEsther T. Mertz Library on the 6th floor of the Library Building.
