Friends of Stadium Woods (FOSW), a group dedicated to preserving the forest surrounding Lane Stadium on Virginia Tech’s campus, held a couple of events to help raise money and awareness for their cause.
According to Rebekah Paulson, the executive director for FOSW, the events included lectures in different locations around Blacksburg, as well as a benefit concert. The events started on Thursday, April 3 with a lecture from Joan Maloof, an author and scientist who also founded the Old Growth Forest Network.
Maloof, who is known for writing the books “Teaching the Trees” and “Among the Ancients,” spoke at the Blacksburg Library Thursday evening at 7 p.m. She spoke again at noon on Friday, April 4 at the Virginia Tech Fralin Institute Auditorium, and then attended the benefit concert later that evening.
