Join environmental historian Dave Hedberg in exploring local archives, sources, and methods to research the history of your neighborhood forest. Researching the historic context of neighborhood forests not only gives trees intangible values, but can also provide valuable lessons to our past and future.

This workshop will provide you with the tools and methods to do your own historical research! Learn how to use the various archives. Bring your internet-connected device (wifi available) and locations to research.
