Stone Walls & Cellar Holes Register View Cart

Discover how to “read” old forested farmscapes and agricultural architecture to trace 300 years of land use history in Vermont. Stone walls, cellar holes, old roads, and other mysteries “lost” in the woods reveal stories of the families who shaped the landscape as we see it today.

In this fusion of natural history, cultural history, and forensics, participants will develop the ability to interpret cultural imprints encountered in the Vermont woods.

This program will meet at Sucker Brook Country Park in Williston- St. George Rd- Rt. 2A
