About This Piece
Strata is sited at the geologic overlook and leverages the interpretive information at that site by adding the additional consideration of current ecology. This piece is made up of layered stone that mimics the stack of ancient layering and uplifting that occurred during the land’s epic history. Carved into that stacked strata of centuries is a layer of relief details that depict the flora that has adapted to the unique geography and soil chemistry of each layer.
