Forest Forensics: A Field Guide to Reading the Forested Land

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St., Brattleboro, VT (18.45 miles from Keene)
Price: Free
Ages: All

Tom Wessels is an ecologist and founding director of the master’s degree program in Conservation Biology at Antioch University New England. This program is based on Tom’s book, “Reading the Forested Landscape, A Natural History of New England”. It introduces people to approaches used to interpret a forest’s history while wandering through it. Using evidence such as the shapes of trees, scars on their trunks, the pattern of decay in stumps, the construction of stone walls, and the lay of the land, it is possible to unravel complex stories etched into our forested landscape. His books include: Reading the Forested Landscape, The Granite Landscape, Untamed Vermont, The Myth of Progress: Toward a Sustainable Future, and Forest Forensics: A Field Guide to reading the Forested Landscape.
Co-sponsored with the Southeastern Vermont Audubon Society.
