Program Speaker

Enjoy a rollicking trip across the eastern U.S. to “hug” some of the most significant trees in America.  These survivors of westward expansion, timbering, industrial growth, pests, drought and disease have much to teach us.  We’ll celebrate the aesthetic and ecological benefits provided by trees in both native forests and public parks. Let us discover their hard-won lessons before we plant trees we expect to live into the next century.

Cheryl Harner is interested in all forms of flora and fauna and fascinated by the connections between botany and wildlife. She is an avid gardener, tree hugger and life-long wildflower, bird and butterfly enthusiast. Co-founder of Flora-Quest, her work includes long-time leadership in Ohio Ornithological Society, Audubon, and Ohio Natural Areas and Preserves. She currently serves two land trust boards and promotes conservation as an environmental educator and advocate for nature.
