Webinar: Margaret “CANOPY MEG” Lowman Joins DIVE IN WITH LIZ AND SYLVIA – 02 December 2021, online

THURSDAY, 2 DECEMBER – 6PM ET / 3PM PT

Margaret “Meg” Lowman Ph.D., known affectionately throughout the world as “Canopy Meg”, is a global pioneer in forest canopy ecology. She is one of the world’s foremost “arbornauts”; someone who explores and studies the vast forest canopies that make up what Meg has termed as the Earth’s “eighth continent.” A tireless educator, strong advocate for girls, women, and minorities in science, Meg has published numerous books, is a sustainability advisor, contributes to boards, and speaks widely and frequently to diverse groups, schools, and international symposiums and conferences. In her own words, Meg describes her passion for the treetops: “Saving trees and all that lives in them.

Her personal goals are to mentor 10 million kids, sell 10 million books, speak in front of 10,000 corporate leaders, conserve 10 million acres of forest, and establish ten walkways in ten high biodiverse forests where women and indigenous families can earn a sustainable income from ecotourism rather than from logging.

Her memoir, The Arbornaut: A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us, aims to inspire girls to seek careers in field biology.

DIVE IN with Liz and Sylvia is a casual, free-flowing, and educational conversation and encourages ocean and nature enthusiasts of all ages to join. Sylvia, Liz, and Meg will take questions via Q & A text and voice call-in from the attendees. Get your questions ready!
