CAC Premieres Film – Forest Secrets Science and Soul – Tonight

Dr. Michael Noonan proudly presents the latest film production of the Canisius Ambassadors for Conservation (CAC). Forest Secrets Science and Soul will premiere tonight February 7 at 5 p.m. in the Regis Room. The event is free and open to the public.

From outer space, our planet looks like a giant blue marble.  But it is a marble that is also washed in green.  Join us as we celebrate the marvelous ecosystems that make up the world’s great forests.  They moderate our climates, sequester our carbon, and recharge our atmosphere.  They envelope the earth, and we should be so grateful that it is so. Our film explores hidden secrets from the forest floor to the canopy, and from the tropics to the taiga.
