“Prairie-side” Chats: Interpreting the Intertwined History of People & Nature

Wednesday, July 28, noon – 1:30 p.m. CDT

Whether you are standing in a second-generation forest or atop an ancient granite dome, clues that reveal the concurrent forces of people and nature over time are very likely evident – if you learn to see them. And learning to see them may be more relevant than you think. Minute observations on the shape of a single tree stump or the configuration of a historic farm wall can alter your understanding of a landscape site. Our conversation will explore Tom Wessels’s fascinating career investigating these forces, teaching people how to interpret them, and illustrating the use of this information to make more informed landscape decisions.

Speaker: Tom Wessels interviewed by Larry Weaner
