Workshop Decodes Sinsinawa’s Driftless Forest Oct. 12

Image of a forestSinsinawa Mound is sponsoring Reading the Driftless Forest from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. Learn how to read the stories of the Driftless Region’s forest through clues to its history and current state of being. Ronald Lindblom, land stewardship director for the Sinsinawa Dominicans, will guide participants in exploring the grounds of Sinsinawa Mound to learn how the forest has adapted to the geology and ecology of the Driftless Region and how the forest has changed in recent times due to human activity. Participants will look through the lenses of energy flow, species interactions, and forest succession to interpret the forest, where it has been, and where it is going.

This event will be held rain or shine, and the fee is $25. Please register by Oct. 7 with Guest Services at 608-748-4411 or online at
