The School of Natural Resource’s spring documentary series will continue with “The Trees.” The event is free and open to the public.

Filmed over the course of five years, The Trees documents the journey of over 400 Swamp White Oaks from their temporary home in New Jersey to the World Trade Center Memorial Plaza. Through the stories of those who design, plan, and construct the Memorial, The Trees explores the evolution of one of the world’s most innovative “green” roof gardens. The film shows public reaction to this lasting, yet ever-changing memorial to the victims of the September 11th attacks. A visual meditation on seasonal changes and the possibility of rebirth, The Trees asks how we memorialize and remember.

Stay after for a discussion of the documentary
with a panel of experts.

Snacks will be for sale to support SNR’s student clubs. Parking will be provided in Hardin Hall parking lot except for meters and reserved facilities spaces. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.
