Join Audubon Center of the North Woods (ACNW) Executive Director Bryan Wood for a field-based session on reading the landscape. All environments are impacted or disturbed: the only difference may be that the disturbance is “human caused” or “naturally caused.” Every environment reacts to disturbances. Between disturbance and the natural succession in plant communities, there are many options for interpretation. Interpreters are often asked "What happened here?" To answer that question you need to make observations, look for patterns, seek resources, and eventually put them together into a coherent story. To tell the best stories, the interpreter needs to have a good base of knowledge, a sharp eye, and an inquisitive mind. During this session we will learn to be better observers of the landscape and to put together pieces into coherent stories. These skills can be applied wherever the interpreter goes.
Check-in begins at 9:30, program begins at 10:00. We will take a lunch break at 12:00 (lunch provided by ACNW) and we will conclude at 2:00. Feel free to bring snacks.
Register early to save your spot!
