Wood built America. The nation's gargantuan appetite for it, especially fired by the Industrial Revolution, meant that by 1920 almost all old-growth forests had been fully or heavily logged. A century later, our need for forests has changed radically. Now healthy woodlands are considered a vital means by which to sequester carbon, a check on climate change. How are private and public land managers responding to this challenge? How are they managing for carbon, water, fire, biodiversity, and wood fiber, all of which have significant economic impacts? Join us for an engaging conversation with David Nunes '83, President and Chief Executive Officer, Rayonier, Inc., and Marc Los Huertos, Stephen M. Pauley M.D. '62 Associate Professor of Environmental Analysis, Coordinator of Environmental Analysis and CA State Board of Forestry. Moderated by Char Miller, W.M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis and History.

Sponsored by The Pomona College Environmental Analysis Program, The Robert Redford Conservancy for Southern California Sustainability, and the Claremont Environmental Roundtable.
