Rooted in Nature

An evening with Suzanne Simard, PhD

Please join us for an evening with Suzanne Simard, PhD, author of Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest. Dr. Simard discovers and reveals the interconnectedness of all life within our forests and the integral role that forests can play in the future of all species.

We look forward to hosting you for insights and conversation centered around Woodland Park Zoo’s new Forests for All exhibit experience and beyond. With your input, we can shape this vision, and our future, by inspiring empathy and actions to restore, protect and sustain our forests for animals and people alike.
