Forests play a major role in the story of Alabama’s past, from prehistory through settlement, through modern eras of development and exploitation, and into its promising future. Join us on Thursday, May 17, at 12 noon for the next ArchiTreats: Food for Thought program at the Alabama Department of Archives and History when Dr. Doug Phillips will present “Discovering Alabama Forests.”
Alabama’s forests are wonderfully diverse, with a broad range of tree species across a wide spectrum of land types. In his presentation, Phillips will highlight the history and diversity of Alabama’s forests, discuss present conditions of forestlands in the state, and consider potential changes likely to affect the future of Alabama’s forests. The presentation will include special photography and video footage revealing forest wonders found across the state.
Dr. Doug Phillips
