The Power of Old-Growth Forests: Why Letting Trees Stand is One of the Best Climate Solutions
Join us for a film screening and panel discussion surrounding the film UNDERSTORY: A Journey Through the Tongass.

One of the world’s last intact temperate rainforests is in jeopardy. Spend 40 minutes on a journey through the Tongass National Forest, learning about its 800-year-old trees and the policies and people that threaten its survival.

UNDERSTORY, a limited-release documentary produced by Wild Confluence Media and sponsored by The Wilderness Society, chronicles a sailboat trip around Prince of Wales Island located within the Tongass. Elsa Sebastian, a commercial angler and Alaska panhandle native, sets out on a “ground-truthing” expedition with Natalie Dawson, a field biologist, and Mara Menahan, a botanical illustrator, in an effort to better understand the threats to the old-growth forest.

Moderated by filmmaker and public lands advocate Faith Briggs, the panel discussion will feature two of the film’s lead characters, Elsa Sebastian and Marina Anderson; Beverley Law, professor emeritus of Global Change Biology and Terrestrial Systems Science at Oregon State University; and The Wilderness Society’s Washington State Director Megan Birzell.
