What happens to science when the science is done? And how does that inform how our forests are managed in the future?

To answer these questions, Catherine Devine from Schoodic Institute sat down with UMaine’s Nicole Rogers to talk about how a research project, Extreme Climate and Trees, will help inform land management strategies for Maine’s forests in the future.. 

As a Fellow in Science Communication at Schoodic Institute. Catherine explains how she came to this topic idea: “I’ve spent 10 months exploring ways to bridge the gap between science and the public. One of my recurring questions during my fellowship was what happens to the science when the science is done? Meaning how does science and research change our environment and our lives?” Catherine’s conversion with Rogers explores these questions and more as they relate to forestry management in Maine. 

So make a note to tune in on April 26th at 4 PM when this month’s Coastal Conversation is about managing our future forests. Only on WERU community radio, 89.9 FM in Blue Hill and streaming online at 

Coastal Conversations is supported by Maine Sea Grant in partnership with Schoodic Institute and The First Coast.
