The Natural and Cultural History of Cheshire Through an Ecological Lens
How did geology shape Cheshire’s development and history? Laurie Sanders, who grew up in Cheshire and was the town’s first environmental planner, will delve into the connection between people and the environment and how one affects the other. Her talk will include a brief but lively romp through the last 400 million years of Cheshire’s geology. Join us for a fascinating overview of how Cheshire became the community it is today! We are planning to hold this program in person, but will switch to Zoom or reschedule if the situation changes.
Laurie Sanders is a naturalist, writer and the former host and producer of Field Notes, a weekly natural history series that aired on NEPR for a decade. She has conducted ecological assessments for land trusts, towns, agencies and private landowners in Massachusetts and other states during the last thirty years, and has found dozens of new locations for rare plants and animals. She is currently the co-director of Historic Northampton.
Laurie is offering this talk to the community in memory of her father Al Sanders.
