Reading the Forested Landscape –
Sunday, December 8 at 1 PM
Did you ever wonder about the historic use of your land? The forest offers tell-tale signs for those who know how to interpret them.
Join Larry Beauregard on his walk through the Refuge and learn to read the landscape. Larry’s presentation focuses on forest succession and how various disturbances, natural and man-made, influence the forest that we see around us. Meet at the Parker Reed shelter, accessible by Gate 1.
Reservation requested by 11.9. 2013, call 944-9259. Suggested donation $5 per adult, school-aged children are free.
