Hunting and Gathering 2019 Lecture Series Logo - Learning to Read the Landscape

Join us for a further exploration of the tradition of hunting and gathering, from food and clothing to the naturalist’s habit of creating collections. Each of our six speakers will share their expertise, from identification and use of the object of the hunt to identifying the landscape or phenology clues that will help hunters and gatherers to find what they’re looking for.

Cost: $10; $5 members; FREE for high school and college students.
