Reading the Land

July 7, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Have you ever wondered what Loudoun County looked like a hundred years ago? Dr. Emily Southgate, a historical ecologist, will describe how old maps and other records, aerial photographs and plants can be used to reimagine the land cover of the county in colonial times and trace changes to the present day. She will interpret the changes in terms of the interactions of plant succession, human impacts and climate change, with illustrations from specific landscapes familiar to most in the county. Questions: Contact info@loudounwildlife.org.
