Changing Landscapes
From Thoreau's Time to Today
November 15, 2:30 PM
Wayland Public Library
Raytheon Room

Much academic attention and press has been given to Concord's historic botanical record. Thoreau's descriptive and detailed accounts of his town's flora and landscapes inspired generations of lay botanists, naturalists, and scholars to revisit, expand, document, and analyze this dynamic and changing landscape for more than 170 years since. Naturalist and photographer, Cherrie Corey, has been working at the heart of this story for the past several years. She will share with us her field explorations, observations, and intimate photographs that reveal an at once historic and living landscape that is rapidly changing, and relies on our deeper understanding and careful stewardship. Refreshments will be served after the program. Learn more HERE.
