Book Launch — What Is Our Place: Fitting People Into Ecosystems

April 8, 2009 - 1:00am

Join CPAWS Northern Alberta & Greenwoods' Bookshoppe for the launch of Herb Hammond’s latest book Maintaining Whole Systems On Earth’s Crown: EcoSystem-based Conservation Planning for the Boreal Forest. The evening will include a visually beautiful and informative slideshow presentation with the author, Herb Hammond, forest ecologist, pioneer of ecosystem-based conservation planning and author of the 1992 award-winning book, Seeing the Forest Among the Trees.

Learn about the philosophy, principles and practice of ecosystem-based conservation planning (EBCP) as both a means to achieving ecologically responsible land management and as a broader approach to tackling the many environmental challenges facing us today.

Herb illustrates clearly how healthy societies are rooted in healthy ecosystems and provides a blueprint that combines scientific knowledge, Indigenous knowledge, and intuition to maintain and restore the ecosystems that sustain all life.

Maintaining Whole Systems on Earth's Crown provides solutions to the current inappropriate and unsustainable exploitation of resources, a vital component in the fight to halt global warming.
