Imagine that a tree planted in 1960 could talk. What would it tell us about our land care practices? Then imagine what the same tree would say to our descendants in 2060? Nobody knows, of course. But few would be surprised if that tree exclaimed, "What's going on out there?" In this two-hour talk, we'll look briefly at past land use practices, their current impacts, land use trends,and some future possibilities for our shared landscapes. The purpose of this talk is to create interest in positive and innovative directions that some have already begun to adopt and that we may be able to adopt in the near future. More

Want to see some fascinating insects in their natural environment? Want to learn which host plants they hang out on, and where they hide? Come on a bug hunt with Pamm Cooper on the Extension grounds in Bethel as she shows us how to find the hidden critters living amid our native and ornamental plants. Pamm will start the class with a PowerPoint presentation identifying some of the common insects we might see in the field, such as beetles, bees, and caterpillars. Then we will head out onto the grounds to “shake out” some of our friends from their cozy plant homes so we can take a closer look. Pamm, who is always on the lookout for insects in their native habitats, will also bring along some interesting live insect samples for the class to view. More
