Nature-lovers explore American forests in new EarthSky series

EarthSky users will be able to explore American forests from many vantage points in 2009, with a series of nine new EarthSky podcasts focused on the forests. The American forest series – to be released over the course of 2009 – begins with Janaki Alavalapati, Head of the Department of Forestry at Virginia Tech, explaining how to use forests sustainably as a renewable energy source, in a way that promotes forest health. More interviews and podcasts with experts in the fields of forestry and conservation will follow throughout this year.

Each of the 9 podcasts will be heard 15 million times around the globe on EarthSky’s global broadcast network. The forest series is made possible by a partnership with the American Forest Foundation.
