Eco events on the horizon
Tree history of the Picuris Mountains — Trees do talk, but people have to learn to listen. The Carson National Forest’s archeologist Patrica Corral will teach people to do that Thursday (Oct. 11) at the event called “If Trees Could Talk: Peeled Trees in the Picuris Mountains.”
“Thirty years ago archaeologists discovered over 500 culturally peeled ponderosa pine trees in the Warm Springs area of the Camino Real District. These living artifacts have provided important information about ancient land use patterns and traditional plant uses,” read a press release from the Forest Service. The talk runs from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Carson supervisor’s office at 208 Cruz Alta Road in Taos.
