Have you ever wondered what a plant was and why it grows there? John Kotar can tell you! As emeritus professor of forest ecology from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Kotar developed an ecological classification system for Great Lakes forests. Join him on a field trip up the gentle back slope of Mount Telemark to gain the widest possible view of this great forested region. We’ll enjoy a virtual glance back into the not so distant Ice Age that shaped it. Meet at the Cable Natural History Museum at 10:30 a.m., return by 2:00 p.m. Bring a lunch and water; dress for the weather. Expect a walk with many pauses for questions and answers.
