10 Years of Recovery Research in a Louisiana Bottomland Hardwood Forest 2005-2015

David Baker, Environmental Curator at A Studio in the Woods, tells the inspiring story of resilience and recovery of the Studio 8-acre forest with scientific research from pre- and post-Katrina.

A forest ecologist, Baker studies long term changes to Louisiana's bottomland hardwood forests with a particular emphasis on how hurricanes and invasive species change these ecosystems.

This special conversation will take place within the installation in the CAC Warehouse.

David Baker has a BS in Botany from Louisiana State University and 20 years of experience in wetland ecology. He was the land manager for the Nature Conservancy of Louisiana, and has 3 years in oil field consulting as a site restoration ecologist. He has been managing the forest at A Studio in the Woods for 10 years. His background in Tulane's Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department is long-term forest evaluation and mapping in hurricane-impacted environments. The monitoring of damage from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, and Isaac has given Baker the information needed to establish a paper evaluating potential damage from hurricanes based on species.
