A Podcast Interview with Jennifer Jewell
This week Jennifer Jewell, with the Cultivating Place Podcast, interviewed Michael Kauffmann and Justin Garwood. Michael and Justin have spent the better part of the last decade curating and editing a cohort of 32 additional expert contributors to a new, and really the first, comprehensive natural history of the Klamath Mountains, one of the most biodiverse temperate mountain ranges on Earth. This distinct North American region, protected by its rough topography for millennia is inclusive of the traditional homelands of more than 14 Native American Tribes, close to 10 separate mountain ranges, and more than 3000 plant taxa, as just a few measures of biodiversity.
The evolving story and natural history of this place has lessons for us all in to best care for, live with, and know our own places.
