LCHS Program: Oak Openings and Native American Forest Modification @ Livingston County Historical Society and Museum
Sep 16 @ 1:30 pm

Presenting preliminary findings in an ongoing research project funded by the Nation Science Foundation, Dr. Dave Robertson explores the origins of western New York’s “oak openings,” particularly their relationship to pre-colonial Native American land use. Based on extensive historical and geospatial analysis of first-hand landscape accounts, original surveyor notes and environmental variables, this research is dispelling the myth that the Northeastern landscape was an unaltered wilderness prior to Euro-American colonization. Early research results also suggest that legacies of Native American land use remain evident in the composition and structure of trees and forests in areas of former Native American occupation, including the middle Genesee Valley.
