‘Land and Culture’ series to start in Roxbury
Minor Memorial Library is presenting a series, “Land and Culture: A Deep Look at the History of Land Use.”
The series will continue March 7 with a discussion of the rise and fall of water-powered industry in Litchfield County presented by Peter Vermilyea, and March 21 with Kyle Turoczi, who will talk about how to read the landscape; and April 6 with a field walk on Roxbury Land Trust property with Turoczi.
A collaborative program with the Roxbury Conservation Commission and the Roxbury Land Trust, the remaining programs will explore different aspects of our local geology, geography, and the different ways people have used the land for food, shelter, and in the pursuit of wealth.
