Understanding & Interpreting the Landscape
with Ondatra Adventures

Saturday, November 7 from 1 – 4 PM
Private MHLC easement in Glenville, NY

From the slow turn of geologic events, the succession of plant species, to the events that describe the human experience, history is recorded across the pages of our landscapes. In this workshop participants will learn how to read and interpret the landscape in its present state to determine age/succession of the forest, previous human activity (old and recent), locate springs, natural food and medicine sources, and much more.
