Belfast Garden Club : “Woodland History and Ecology in Waldo County” October 17 Belfast Free Library
October 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Garden Club Lecture with Forester Morten Moesswilde October 17 at 2pm at BFL
Join Forester Morten Moesswilde for a look at the diverse forests of Waldo County, which sit at a geographical crossroads and contain northern and southern species. Glacial, marine and other soils add a further element of diversity. Learn how local forests have evolved, from the days before European settlement to now, and how they have grown and re-grown after clearing, timber harvesting, and in response to myriad other influences. Moesswilde will delve into how the woodlots of today offer evidence of events long past and more recent. His knowledge will change the way you see the woods next time you hike through them.
The Belfast Garden Club invites you to explore the diverse forests of Waldo County, learn why citizen science is crucial to our understanding of the planet’s morphing climate, and see the latest plants and garden products.
These and other topics will be offered in the club’s 2017/2018 Daytime Program Series, which runs monthly from October to April (with a break in December). Each program is free, open to everyone, and starts at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday in Belfast Free Library.
