Lu Corbyn Speaks to Red Deer River naturalists

    Dr Lu Corbyn gave an interesting talk to the Red Deer River Naturalists on thinking about the idea of the new natural. His point is that the earth is constantly changing so we identify the present as natural. Of course man is pushing these changes along.

    Corbyn owns a piece of land that was farmed and abandoned in the mid 1940's. He's carefully gone back to see what it looked like before the homesteaders came and of course was able to fairly accurately describe what's happened since the homesteaders left.

    We are changing the earth very quickly and he is worried that some species will not be able to survive these changes.

    It was a very interesting talk.
