Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:00 PM
Natural History Institute, 312 Grove Ave., Prescott, AZ
From invasive plant removal to the installation of a public greenway, co-founder of the Butte Creek Restoration and Education Project, faculty Joel Barnes, will talk about the important work being done to improve the section of Butte Creek that winds through the Prescott College campus. Joel will also discuss the fundamentals of the restoration process in an urban setting.
As a follow up to the talk, on Saturday, February 22, from 9am-noon, "Cottonwood Calendar," a restoration and phenology* workshop at the creek will be hosted by the Natural History Institute.
These events are free and open to the public.
The Natural History Institute is located at the Butte Creek-facing side of 312 Grove Ave., northwest from Grove and Sheldon, at Prescott College.
*Phenology is the study of re-occurring life cycles in plants and animals, especially in relation to climate.
The Natural History Institute integrates art, science and the humanities in the practice of natural history, the practice of focused attentiveness to nature.
