The Saddle overlook at Rocky Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County Virginia provides the backdrop for an informal conversation with naturalist-author Fred First about the role that forests can play in a sustainable future. We can help forests support biodiversity by: halting local and global deforestation; managing forests for the eco-services they provide; planting trees; and cooperating to connect forest corridors.
