Event: Much More Than A Desert Presentation by Jack Nisbet

Jack Nisbet will be speaking to a joint meeting of the Archaeological Society of Central Oregon and the High Desert Chapter of the Native Plant Society at Oregon State University-Cascades, Room 111, Tykeson Hall. Parking is free in the campus lot after 5pm. Nisbet wrote the book “The Dreamer and the Doctor” about John B. Leiberg and his doctor wife, Carrie. John and Carrie Lieberg cut a wide swath through the Pacific Northwest at the end of the 19th century, engaging in activities that ranged from timber assessments and fire ecology to public health and suffrage politics. Nesbit’s slide presentation will focus on two landmark plant surveys that John made through eastern Oregon in 1894 and 1896. Join us for a look at habitats Leiberg explored from the Blue Mountains to Bend and from the Malheur River to Crater Lake.
