Robert Belcher, "Resources and Recreation," 1963
Lecture or Presentation Date:
Born in 1918, Robert O. Belcher grew to be the leading authority on the Sencio family of plants. He brought the expertise to Eastern Michigan University in 1946, as part of the faculty in the Biology Department. Belcher taught at EMU until his retirement in 1981. In this presentation, Belcher connects the concept of recreation with the concept of sustainability, emphasizing the idea that there are certain resources essential to human recreation. Natural settings, access to water, and enough capital to sustain a way of life are all essential, yet all threatened by the population explosion of the early 1960s.
