On the Cusp: Mike Mossman will describe the origin and early days of the Badger History Group during the tumult that followed the announcement that the BAAP would close. The group played an important role on the Badger Reuse Committee. By gathering and telling stories it helped the regional community understand the variety of important roles the site played in human and natural history, and to come to terms with its legacy of deep and conflicting emotional scars. This helped develop a foundation of common ground and trust on which to plan for the site's future.

Presented by Mike Mossman, Wildlife Biologist
