Episode 43: "Arbornaut, Author, Pioneer, Educator – Canopy Meg" with Meg Lowman, 5/23/22

Margaret Lowman Ph.D., is known affectionately throughout the world as “Canopy Meg.” She is a global pioneer in forest canopy ecology. She is one of the world’s foremost “arbornauts” — someone who explores and studies the vast forest canopies that make up what Meg has termed the Earth’s “eighth continent.” A tireless educator, strong advocate for girls, women, and minorities in science, Meg has published numerous books, is a sustainability advisor, contributes to boards, and speaks widely and frequently to diverse groups, schools, and international symposiums and conferences. In her own words, Meg describes her passion for the treetops this way, "Saving trees and all that lives in them" is what causes me to leap out of bed each morning.” Meg is passionate about the opportunity to explore, research, and conserve global forests; mentor the next generation (especially women and minorities) in sustainability and forest stewardship; and educate diverse audiences through advising and storytelling.
