Join us for a screening of America's First Forest! See the first full-length, in-depth documentary film ever made about legendary forester and educator Carl Schenck and his environmental legacy! America’s First Forest explores how an extraordinary group of men converged at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, to address a critical question: Could the Scientific Revolution stop the Industrial Revolution from destroying America’s forests?
By introducing scientific forest management to America and establishing the Biltmore Forest School—the nation’s first forestry school—Carl Schenck helped launch the conservation movement. Now this story is told through America’s First Forest, produced by the Forest History Society. Thank you to our co-sponsor The New York State Society of American Foresters (SAF) and local SAF Iroquois chapter members.
