Have you ever wondered what Loudoun County looked like a hundred years ago? Today the 900-acre Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship comprises mostly meadows in the valley and heavily forested mountain slopes, but it hasn’t always looked that way. Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s Emily Southgate on a walk to discover humankind’s impact on the land. People have lived and used the land there for centuries and have had a tremendous impact on it. Dr. Southgate, a historical ecologist, will describe how you can use old maps, aerial photographs and plants to study the impact on the land and ecology and how it came to be the way it is today. Registration required: Visit the Blue Ridge Center website to sign up.
