LIFE@Lynchburg: The Shifting Landscapes of Lynchburg’s College Lake

March 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Laura Henry-Stone, PhD.

This presentation will investigate the past, present, and future of College Lake and the changes over time in its physical and metaphorical landscapes. College Lake was created when Blackwater Creek was dammed in 1934. Ninety years later, plans to remove College Lake Dam are finally coming to fruition. What does the future hold for this fascinating but troubled ecosystem?
