Twilight of the Hemlocks and Beeches: Inspiring Photographs & Writings of Tim Palmer

Location: Orndorff Theatre, Ceddia Union Building (CUB), Shippensburg University; 7:00pm

Join award winning author and photographer Tim Palmer who will present a slide show based on his 2018 book, Twilight of the Hemlocks and Beeches, published by Penn State University Press. With stunning photographs taken throughout the range of the Eastern Hemlock and American Beech, the author shows the irreplaceable beauty of these magnificent trees, and he explains the invasion of exotic insects and pathogens that are tragically decimating one of the most beloved forest types in eastern America. Still hopeful, Palmer writes, “The efforts to protect and restore these forests provide guidance, motivation, and inspiration to better care for our forests everywhere.” This program is part of a partnership between South Mountain Partnership and Shippensburg University.
