A neighbor knocked on our door. He was holding a twig covered with lichens. He wanted to know what heck they were and how could he get rid of them, because they were killing his tree. I explained that no, these were not killing his tree, but because the twigs were bare, their spores had germinated there to take advantage of the good light (without the leaves). He's not alone in thinking the lichens are causing harm to trees, so I thought I should provide some needed background. Read my article: Lichen: a three-way symbiotic organism

This morning we are featuring Amanda D. Rodewald, Ph.D.
She is presenting:

Coffee, Conservation and Communities

Many of the planet’s biodiversity hotspots face widespread deforestation, land degradation, and poverty, and, as such, require creative ways to sustain species, protect ecosystem services, and support human health and well-being. Shade-grown coffee farms are well-suited to simultaneously meet social and ecological needs. When coffee is grown under trees, farms can supply a variety of products (e.g., coffee, fruits, firewood, lumber, and medicines), while at the same time provide forest cover, support diverse species assemblages, and reduce erosion and chemical use compared to other intensive agricultural systems. Perhaps no other group better highlights the positive role that shade-coffee can play in conservation than Neotropical migratory birds, which heavily use shade-coffee farms. Unfortunately, traditional shade management has given way to intensive “sun coffee” monocultures. In her talk, Dr. Rodewald will discuss how shade-coffee and other agroforestry practices can support bird conservation, healthy ecosystems, and human communities in Latin America.

We are motivated and invigorated by Max Collins of Hallow Studios and his recently completed mural! Thank you for choosing to advocate and use amazing art to highlight what was once a historic and spectacular Olmsted parkway (Humboldt) and what is now possible for coming generations.

With federal infrastructure dollars dedicated to reconnecting communities in New York State, there is NOW an opportunity for these important green spaces to be restored and for neighborhoods to be reconnected.

Anytime you see/hear “Region Central”, that is referring to the Scajaquada Corridor. It is a community outreach effort led by the Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council to assess and identify the best course of action for the future of the corridor. Your input and engagement will inform them of YOUR vision for Buffalo.

The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy supports the vision and work of the Scajaquada Corridor Coalition. If you too agree and support the SCC’s vision, please pay close attention to upcoming opportunities to make your voice heard.

Collins’ work can be viewed in person along 714 Northland Ave. Photos by @makscollins
