An Evening with Jens Jensen – a Roger Kuhns Monologue

Abstract: What if you could spend an hour chatting with one of your heroes? Kuhns contemplated such a moment in regard to Jensen, father of landscape architecture and founder of The Clearing in Door County, WI. Jensen was a recognized national master of all of these crafts and skills. Join Kuhns as he delves into the words and experiences of Jensen to bring them alive and communicate how this insightful Danish immigrant became an American icon, and a leader of native landscape design and the Prairie Movement. Kuhns is a writer, geologist and sustainologist. He is also an award-winning documentary filmmaker on the Niagara Escarpment.
