Jenny McCune: The Invisible Present: How the Grasslands and Forests Around Us Are Changing Without Our Notice.

  • Nature Lethbridge, PO Box 546 STN main Lethbridge, AB(map)

When we drive by natural areas or visit parks we often think of the vegetation as an unchanging backdrop to the activities of animals. In fact, communities of plants are dynamic, shifting in response to changes on the landscape.

In this talk, Jenny McCune will use Waterton Lakes National Park as an example to show how the effects of fire suppression, increased recreation, climate change, and the 2017 Kenow wildfire are written in the changing composition of the Park's plant communities over decades and centuries.
