Join Dr. Emily Southgate in this co-sponsored program with the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy where we will explore the Blue Ridge Center property to discover the history of human impact on the land.  The 900-acre Blue Ridge Center is comprised mostly of meadows in the valley and heavily forested slopes today; however, people have lived and used the land here for centuries and have had a tremendous impact on it.  Dr. Southgate, a historical ecologist, will describe what and how we can learn from studying man’s impact on the land and ecology. Recommended Ages: 17 yrs. old and up.

This program is being presented for free thanks to support from the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and The North Face.
