Friday, April 23, 2021
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: Virtual

Event Description: A presentation by Karin Patzke, ESF Instructor, Writing Program and Writing Resource Center Coordinator. The presentation is based on work that Robert Kibbee (retired Cornell map librarian and historian) has completed on historical colonial settlement and the research of Tom Wessels (Forest Forensics and Reading the Forested Landscape). The presentation explores the colonial settlement and agricultural development of Central New York, as well as various attempts to alternatively conserve the lands for alternative resource management and/or preserve the cultural history of the landscape through the development of visual literacies. The talk will be bookended with Karin's research on lichens (as indicators of pollution, settlement and movement), trail information and photos, and linking to Earth Day and the constant battle to create more sustainable and resilient lives.
