Join us for the family friendly series as we take a closer look at the traces, or ghosts, of the effects of geology, climate and human influence on Michigan landscapes. After attending the series, participants will have the knowledge to recognize these ghostly clues and the skills to determine if the landscape feature is natural or a remnant of historic human use.
Registration for Forest Forensics: Ghosts on the Landscape is open.
Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on October 18, 2020.
