Hear from the world’s first arbornaut at this ASU event

Meg Lowman has been called a “Real-Life Lorax” by National Geographic, and Arizona State University is pleased to host her in a virtual event on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. Arizona / MST (5 p.m. PST / 7 p.m. CST / 8 p.m. EST).
“CanopyMeg” Lowman pioneered the field of forest canopy science and is considered one of the world’s first “arbornauts,” or explorers of the canopies. The tree scientist will discuss her new book, "The Arbornaut: A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us" in a conversation with ASU scholars and students.
A blend of memoir and fieldwork account, “The Arbornaut” gives us the chance to travel with biologist, botanist and conservationist Lowman. It is the engrossing, uplifting story of a nerdy tree climber ― the only girl at the science fair ― who becomes a giant inspiration, a groundbreaking, ground-defying field biologist and a hero for trees everywhere. Join us!
TomorrowTalks are a student-engagement initiative led by the Division of Humanities in The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at ASU and hosted by ASU's Department of English in partnership with Macmillan Publishers.
