Forests! For the Atmosphere, Biodiversity, Human Health and Happiness [Book Reading with Joan Maloof]
November 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In this informal talk Dr. Joan Maloof will discuss the overall condition of planet earth’s forests. She will discuss the critical role forests play in biodiversity, and the carbon cycle. She will explore the human health benefits of forests as well as their aesthetic qualities. After this celebration of the forests Maloof will discuss the status of the Old-Growth Forest Network — a project she started to create a Network of never-logged publicly accessible forests across the country. Since her last talk at Fox Haven, Maloof has published two new books and is at work on another. She will describe the development of these book projects and the difference they have made. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Maloof will discuss an effort to protect Maryland State Parks from the risk of logging and how you can get involved.

About LandBack Tax
Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.
