Parlor Talks: Trees, Cabins, & Dendrochronology

In collaboration with Drekker Brewing Company, the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County presents the second of our summer lecture series “Parlor Talks,” a combination of local history, food, and beer at the Hjemkomst Center.

On Tuesday, June 13, from 6:00PM to 8:00PM, NDSU Forestry Professor Joe Zeleznik will be sharing the results of a recent study of local trees and log cabins. Zeleznik specializes in dendrochronology, or the study of tree rings, and his insight helps us understand Settlement-era Clay County (and the surrounding areas) through the analysis of the region’s earliest cabins and oldest trees. The evening will include food from the Rex Cafe, local beer from Drekker Brewing Company, a 90-minute history, and tours of the HCSCC museum.

Admission is $15 ($10 for members) and that includes food and the first beverage (ages 21+). Tickets Available Here.
