Sustainable Futures Speaker Series

When: Thu., Feb. 8, 5:30-7 p.m. 2018

Radically different perceptions of the tanoak tree have ranged from treasured food plant to cash crop to trash tree. Having studied patterns of tanoak use and abuse for nearly 20 years, Bowcutt uncovers a complex history of cultural, sociopolitical, and economic factors affecting the tree's fate and discusses hopeful changes, including new partnerships among tanoak defenders, including foresters, Native Americans, and plant pathologists. Bowcutt teaches botany in interdisciplinary programs at Evergreen State College. Location: FH 118, HSU
