Shared Ground Science Podcasts
Meet foresters, naturalists, activists, scientists, visionaries, and outdoorsy people of all stripes to share delight in the wonders of forest ecosystems. We talk about issues of forestry, conservation and interconnected topics, and discover sustainable, ecological, respectful ways of relating to the forest. Maintaining and regenerating forest ecosystems is one of the most important necessities of our time, and contributes to everything from carbon sequestration to healthy children. Join Amanda Bostlund as she meets with various folks in Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia) and beyond to talk about forests as our shared ground, for all species, humans and not. We explore the incredible value of thriving forests, methods and mindsets for their protection, and regenerative solutions for how we interact with and within them. Tune in every other Tuesday for information and ideas, inspiration and opportunities for involvement. One of the main purposes of this podcast is to hear opinions, perspectives and ideas from many different people, and not to treat any of them as the be all and end all. What you hear does not necessarily represent the opinions of the host. The hope is that you consider whatever content you hear for yourself and enjoy the journey of making sense of these complicated, interconnected issues of our time. Find us on Facebook:

Research Nova Scotia – forestry research program
“(Halifax, NS) Research Nova Scotia is partnering with the Forestry Innovation Transition Trust (FITT) to deliver a three-year forestry research program. This program will work to harness the creativity and expertise of Canada’s research community to support Nova Scotia’s transition to an ecological forestry model.

“Forestry is a key industry for Nova Scotia, supporting thousands of jobs and forming part of the character and natural environment of communities across the province. Along with agriculture, fisheries and other resource-based sectors, forestry is significantly affected by a changing climate and the environmental pressures that result, such as new forest pests and diseases, soil erosion, and wildfires. Research is part of the solution: by working closely with forest experts to identify the gaps, researchers can help to improve understanding of climate models, address pests and other hazards, improve processes and innovations, evaluate the results of management practices over time, and explore areas of interest to forest managers, industry professionals, and communities alike.”
