The Year of Low Water: Plant Ecology of Walden Pond’s Shore, Saturday, September 10, 2016, 1:00pm-3:00pm

Join world-renowned biologist Richard Primack for a walk from the Thoreau House Replica to Thoreau’s cove. Henry David Thoreau kept extensive records of plant flowering and leaf-out times. Dr. Primack uses Walden Pond as a living laboratory, comparing current conditions with Thoreau’s records and documenting that the climate around Walden Pond is changing. Dr. Primack will discuss the ecological consequences of these changes, as well as the plant successions taking place during the current low-water levels at Walden.
