Arts & Humanities

The Bonanza Creek LTER program has a strong history of leadership in arts, humanities, and ecological science integration. In 2008, BNZ founded the program, In a Time of Change (ITOC), which facilitates and produces transdisciplinary events and exhibits focused on social-ecological themes, including climate change, wildfire, predator control, and the role of microbes in environmental health. ITOC recognizes that the arts, humanities, and sciences bring different yet synergistic perspectives and approaches to the natural world. Synthesizing these diverse perspectives stands to yield much greater success in solving complex problems and promoting outreach and education than separate disciplines working in relative isolation.
