Sturbridge’s Changing Landscape:
Past, Present & Future
Thursday, May 28, 7:00pm,
with the Sturbridge Historical Society.
at The Publick House, Sturbridge
Using archaeological, historical and early photographic documentation, Ed Hood, executive director of Opacum Land Trust, will provide an overview of the human impact on the land, and how the landscape we see in Sturbridge today is the product of the continuous process of changing human land use. Using new research from the field of land conservation, Ed will provide insights into the potential look and feel of towns like Sturbridge in the future – a future that is being shaped by our actions today. Sponsored by the Sturbridge Historical Society.
