UPCOMING LECTURES, WALKS, and HIKES
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 6:00-8:00 p.m. — “Other Ways of Knowing” – Raylene McCalman, anthropologist and ethnobotanist — Teton County Library. Plant communities and landscapes appear entirely different when observed through the lenses of culture and traditional ecological knowledge. Raylene McCalman, researcher and writer, will use these frameworks to explore the native plant communities of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Raylene currently serves as Program Director of the Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative. Her fieldwork, throughout the Rocky Mountain West and beyond, has captured the stories and traditions of people and places along the way. Free. Co-sponsored by the Teton County Library. Please come and welcome Raylene and learn more about her work.
Tuesday, September 25, 6 – 8 p.m. — “Hiding in Plain Sight” – Teton County Library. Join local plant enthusiast Morgan Graham for a photographic homage to some of his favorite vegetation from seasons past. The native plant talk will focus on where and when to find these occasionally inconspicuous jewels of Teton County, as well as interesting anecdotes regarding their significance to wildlife and humans. Morgan is currently the GIS & Wildlife Specialist for Teton Conservation District. His knowledge and appreciation for native plant communities has developed over the past 15 years while monitoring conservation easements, assessing ungulate habitat, and exploring off trail in the Rocky Mountain West.
From September through May, 6 pm, every fourth Tuesday of the month, we will present a program at the Teton County Library in partnership with the Teton County Library. 125 Virginian Lane, Jackson. WY. FREE. We welcome your ideas for speakers!
Furthermore, we offer occasional winter field trips, so stay posted! All field trips are free and open to the public. Questions? Email us at tetonplants [at] gmail [dot] com
