“Sustainable Maine” Basket Trees

May 18 @ 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Maine Public Broadcasting Network (MPBN) rebroadcast of Sustainable Maine episode: Basket Trees – Saving a Tradition

A tiny invasive bug, the emerald ash borer could decimate Maine’s ash trees and jeopardize the livelihoods of Maine’s Indian basket makers, who rely on the tree for their time-honored craft. Darren Ranco, UMaine associate professor of anthropology and Chair of Native American Programs, is leading an SSI team that brings together diverse groups to try to prevent, detect and respond to this threat.
