Join forest ecologist Suzanne Simard, poets Amy Gerstler and Kinsale Drake, and The Huntington’s Director of Botanical Gardens Nicole Cavender for a walking lecture and poetry reading set among three tree communities in the Huntington Gardens. In the spirit of Ursula K. LeGuin’s novella The Word for World Is Forest, this event celebrates the forest’s consciousness and trees’ ability to care for one another, listen to the world, and respond with inspired ingenuity. 

Co-presented with The Huntington.

Made possible by the support of the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
