Exploring Valles Caldera Aspen Dendroglyphs as Historic Records at 7 p.m. at the Nature Center. Aspen carvings are an untapped historical record of early 20th Century peoples in the forested landscape of Valles Caldera National Preserve. The Preserve recently completed a compilation of data for more than 2,500 carvings. Examining this dendroglyph record offers a narrative of peoples that are otherwise little-documented in regular history. Join Ana Steffen, an Interdisciplinary Scientist/communicator at Valles Caldera, to hear about what they can learn from the dates, family names, and place names that are recorded in the glyphs. She will also discuss how they can see the ecological context of aspen dendroglyphs as an intersection between nature and culture: the markings of a human community in the context of a forest community.
