What I Learned About Plants While Living at Sagehen Creek Field Station for 20 Years
Online, August 11 2022, 6 p.m.
Presenters: Faerthen Felix and Erica Krimmel
Sagehen Creek is a headwaters tributary of the Truckee River, below Lake Tahoe. Faerthen Felix will give an introduction to the conditions affecting botany in the basin and its many habitats, the history of the Station, followed by some interesting local plants and fascinating ecological stories. Erica Krimmel will then discuss the Sagehen Collections Program and the importance of the digitization of botanical information and herbarium collections.
Faerthen Felix lived on site, and was the Assistant Manager of UC Berkeley – Sagehen Creek Field Station from 2001 to 2020.
Erica Krimmel is the Digitization Resources Coordinator at iDigBio, where she is a biodiversity information scientist working with the natural history collections community to maximize the accessibility and usefulness of specimen-based data.
