NGM Executive Director Tony Shahan will explore the structures and devices needed to run a water-powered mill and dissect the “machine on the landscape” using examples from different mills. As well as referring to primary sources, he will draw on physical evidence from the archaeological studies at Newlin Grist Mill and others.
Ulmus americana (American elm) was once widely planted in American cities but has been decimated by Dutch elm disease (DED). Dr. Tara Trammel, John Bartram Associate Professor of Urban Forestry at the University of Delaware, will talk about restoring DED-resistant Ulmus americana in urban landscapes.
