February 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Her ground-breaking work has influenced filmmakers (James Cameron’s Avatar, and authors (Richard Power’s The Overstory), and her TED talks have garnered more than 10 million views worldwide.

Join us February 15 for a wide ranging discussion in which Dr Simard will describe not only her fascinating findings, but also her personal journey from growing up in the rainforests of British Columbia to becoming a scientific world leader, overcoming, along the way, a deeply entrenched and skeptical scientific community.
