Ghost Forests: A Different Perspective on Climate Science Through Art

Join us as we discuss a phenomenon known as “ghost forests”. Primarily affecting Atlantic White Cedar trees that grow along the forest/coastal marsh edge, ghost forests are a result of salt water inundation from sea level rise and storms. Now, they can be seen throughout the Mullica River/ Great Bay estuary, as well as other coastal areas within southern New Jersey. We will also explore the NJ Ghost Forest exhibit in New York City to experience how art can portray climate change from a different perspective than science, but just as effectively. And finally, we will give directions to go see these unique forests for yourself as part of the Seaport’s “off the beaten track “family trip series.

Presenters: Dr. Ken Able and Dr. Jennifer Walker, Rutgers University, and Paul Hart from The Tuckerton Seaport and Baymen’s Museum.
