North Branch Nature Center’s History on the Land
Wednesday, March 15 | 6:30 – 8 pm | FREE
IN PERSON (Tickets Required: Register Here)

Part of the Naturalist Journeys 2023 Winter Presentation Series

Uncover the story of the historic farmhouse and farm that North Branch Nature Center calls home. Learn how to read the landscape to reveal history hidden in plain sight. Peel back the layers of time with landscape historian Samantha Ford of Turn Stone Research to learn how past generations have shaped the land at NBNC.

About Samantha Ford: Samantha’s passion for history extends back nearly three decades, when her parents found her watching the History Channel instead of Saturday morning cartoons. She discovered her interest in genealogy at 16, and has been within arm’s reach of a book ever since. When she graduated with her MSc. in Historic Preservation from the University of Vermont in 2013, Sam headed west to serve as the Director of Historical Research and Outreach at the Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum. She returned home to Vermont in 2015, where the history is deeper and the woods greener. Sam prefers to learn and teach outside, replacing the book stacks of her youth with hardwood forests. Sam’s happiest when others are inspired to share their own personal history with her during a walk in the woods.
