Flora for Fauna with Arthur Haines

“Flora for Fauna” in person lecture with Botanist and Maine Guide Arthur Haines

Arthur Haines is one of New England’s most accomplished research botanists, and the author of Flora Novae Angliae, the definitive botanical reference for the region’s native and naturalized plants.  While his work has led to the conservation and protection of many plants and places, this talk will instead focus on our need to interact with wild organisms, such as eco-conscientious harvesting and other ancestral practices of “conservation through use,” in order to promote human health, improve plant populations, and prevent the loss of wild lands.

Arthur Haines is a Maine hunting and recreation guide, forager, ancestral skills mentor, author, public speaker, and botanical researcher. As a research botanist for the Native Plant Trust, he completed an inclusive flora of the New England region titled “Flora Novae Angliae” and has authored over twenty publications in peer-reviewed journals and books, including naming species of plants new to science. Arthur now runs the Delta Institute of Natural History in Canton, Maine, where he teaches human ecology, focusing on the values of foraging, wildcrafting medicine, and primitive living skills.
