World Sensorium Conservancy to Host ‘Trees for the Future’

The World Sensorium Conservancy is hosting a Trees for the Future event in New York City on June 10 and 11. Anyone is welcome to participate by picking up a free tree at the Olfactory Art Keller on Henry Street and by attending a free talk being offered there. According to its website, the Sensorium Conservancy aims to “support and promote biodiversity conservation and help secure the future of aromatic and medicinal plants.” 

Participants can reserve a pine, oak, maple or walnut tree in advance for pickup at Olfactory Art Keller between noon and 6 p.m. on June 10 or 11. All the seedlings provided were started on private land in Upstate New York, so all the trees are native to New York City. Participants can also register to attend one or both free talks being held during pickup hours.

The first talk is set for June 10 at 4 p.m., when Andreas Keller, Ph.D., will discuss “How We Perceive Nature Through Our Sense of Smell.” Keller is the founder of Olfactory Art Keller and performs transdisciplinary research in various fields of neuroscience and philosophy. 

The second talk will be held June 11 at 4 p.m. Lewis Ziska, Ph.D., will present “Climate Change and Plant Biology: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” Ziska, a plant physiologist at Columbia University, is currently researching the impacts of carbon dioxide, plant biology and public health. 

Location: 25 Henry St, New York, NY. To learn more, reserve a tree and register for the talks, visit
