      Reconstructing Historical Landscapes in Northern Santa Clara County

      7:30 p.m. at Santa Clara University Daly Science Building, Room 206

      Long before concrete and asphalt replaced orchards in the Santa Clara
      Valley, and even before

      orchards and towns began to supplant field crops and ranching, great
      alterations had already begun

      in the land's native ecology. Historical sources can give us some idea of
      how human activities accelerated

      natural processes of change and directly affected the land's vegetation,
      stream courses, and

      marshes, ranging from the oak and sycamore forests of the valley's alluvial
      fans down to the vast tidal

      marshlands now being considered for restoration.
