History In The Leaves: Field Clues to Land Use History
with Jared Rosenbaum
October 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join botanist Jared Rosenbaum of Wild Ridge Plants as he describes methods for interpreting the history of natural sites, including pasture trees, signs of logging, high quality remnants, the use of aerial imagery, and Floristic Quality Assessment.
