Jane Crosen: Exploring our Local Watersheds through Maps
Back to do a reprise as requested by some who missed Jane’s April program and by some who were there, on August 11 mapmaker Jane Crosen will present a slide talk on the art of mapping watery places and exploring local watersheds through maps. Join her on a virtual adventure, looking at photos and maps exploring the form and flow of our freshwater systems, the underlying geology and landscape patterns, and the natural and cultural history of lakes, ponds, and estuaries around the Blue Hill Peninsula and downeast Maine.
The program, open to the public, will be from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at Reversing Falls Sanctuary.
For nearly 40 years, Jane has been on a journey of discovery in making and interpreting maps and exploring Maine’s landscape and its history. Finding her niche in maps and editing at DeLorme, she came home to downeast Maine in 1981 and has since created and published more than 30 hand-drawn maps of Maine coastal and lake regions, available as posters, cards, Tshirts, chef aprons, and floursack towels. Also a freelance editor and proofreader, she writes essays and articles, published Maine Mapmaker’s Kitchen, and is working on a second cookbook, Culinary Landscapes. She lives with her husband in Penobscot.
