Entanglement and Change: Reading the Biodiversity Landscape
April 10 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
A Biodiversity Garden Party event developed in partnership with the Carolina Biodiversity Collaborative
ABOUT THIS SERIES
Curated in Triangle wild spaces, these informal gatherings will celebrate the state’s natural wonders, educate us about changes and threats to biodiversity, and inspire new perspectives about our role in North Carolina’s ecological future.
We’re pairing scientists and humanists in interactive explorations at the intersections of science, art, literature, history, and more. Through wandering conversations, rather than lectures, we’ll gather in community with experts to explore new ways to encounter the natural world.
Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch, comfortable walking shoes, and a sense of curiosity.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Learn ways humanity has been entangled with and changed the natural world from indigenous and colonial histories through to the present. Participants will also learn about modern “citizen science” and how it’s used to track changes across the animal kingdom. They will be able to observe and record data on the iNaturalist app for use by scientific data repositories.
