Do you know which species are invasive where you live? Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between invasive species and non-native species?
We will screen a brief film of a hike and conversation on the subject between natural resources agent Blake Moore and Environmental Humanities program facilitator Lisa Dill. After the film we will discuss invasive species and our connection with them.
Many of us think the word "environment" exists in strictly scientific terms, from climate science to land management to agriculture to food. However, all of these issues occupy a space between science and the humanities. All of them are debated and discussed by writers, historians, philosophers, and political figures, in addition to chemists, biologists, and physicists. All of them intersect with the other crucial issues of American life: health, culture, religion, economics. The Environmental Humanities open these discussions for all of us, providing a framework for these important conversations. Delaware Humanities is excited to begin facilitating Environmental Humanities programs in our communities. Check this space for upcoming events.
