“A Force for Nature: Lucy Braun” Television Broadcast
April 14, 2019 @ 12:00 am - April 23, 2019 @ 12:00 am
“A Force for Nature: Lucy Braun” is a one-hour documentary that explores the life and legacies of Dr. E. Lucy Braun (1889 – 1971), one of the foremost botanists and ecologist in American history. Dr. Braun was a trailblazer in the emerging science of plant ecology, and a leader in the early conservation movement. In 1950, she published Deciduous Forests of Eastern North America, a landmark book that documented forest communities from Florida to Canada. An extraordinary woman of science, Braun helped to preserve natural spaces in Ohio and Kentucky, including the Edge of Appalachia Preserve System. “The documentary highlights the life of E. Lucy Braun, a groundbreaking 20th century scientist,” says Meg Hanrahan, the documentary’s writer, producer and director. “We think Dr. Braun should be better recognized for her role as one of the country’s first ecologists and for being a tireless advocate for preservation.” In addition to telling Lucy’s story, the program documents important history in ecology, tells the tale of the fate of many of our virgin forests, and illustrates the rewards of successful preservation of natural spaces.”
