A man who has researched landscape architect Jens Jensen, founder of The Clearing Folk School in Ellison Bay to train future architects, is pleased that Jensen will finally be in the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame. Roger Kuhns also portrayed Jensen on stage in “An Evening with Jens Jensen”. Kuhns says Jensen's work with Chicago area parks and the Cook County Forest Preserve still show the need for people of all ages to reconnect with the outdoors, no matter where they live.
Kuhns says today's nature preserves also fulfill Jensen hopes that visitors can rediscover themselves.
Kuhns is finishing up a book based on his play “An Evening with Jens Jensen” and expects to do further performances at The Clearing, though no dates have been set.
