Coyote Sense: Tracing the Transformation of the Kansas Landscape
A Science on Tap event with Sara Gregg
Wednesday, October 17th
Free State Brewing Co., 636 Massachusetts Street
Life on the Great Plains requires flexibility, a sense of humor, and adaptation to the sometimes overwhelming forces of nature. Humanists strive to convey the systems that underpin life in this region in a way that captures the complexity of these ecosystems. In this way, the coyote offers a model of adaptation. Using a narrative approach to environmental studies, Sara Gregg will use the coyote’s place in Kansas combined with geomorphology and biodiversity, to explore new strategies for conveying the deeply local context of mammalian interactions with the land.
