Sips with a Scientist: Fire and the Forest Floor

Thursday February 21, 2019

Attendees are encouraged to grab a grown-up hot chocolate and get “the dirt” on soils from Arboretum soil ecologist Meghan Midgley, PhD. Midgley will discuss her latest research on the impacts of prescribed fire on local oak ecosystem soils. Prescribed fire is a common technique used to control invasive understory plants and promote oak regeneration in woods and savannas across Illinois, northern Indiana and southern Wisconsin. This program is open to adults 21 and older.
