There's so much going on in the Upper Valley Area, why not simplify your plans with our top pick for the upcoming week?
Guided Forest Walk
Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, Woodstock, VT
Every Friday & Saturday 10:30-11:30 am, Free
First, we'd like to say, if you've not been to this fantastic National Park so close to the Upper Valley - GO THERE as soon as you can! You don't need an event or a reason. A superbly managed park, this former Rockefeller estate has so much to see and do, all the time. For a look at their programs click here.
This site was where George Perkins Marsh first observed the effects of poor land management and the subsequent degradation of Mt. Tom (viewed from the front of the house). The very experiences that spurred his interest that eventually led to him writing the iconic 'Man & Nature'. The first widely recognized literature to raise a warning about the need for sustainability.
Our pick this week is their weekly guided walk through their sustainably managed forest. Listen to stories of stewardship and learn about it's history and future while gazing on the beautiful trees. Don't miss the 400 year old hemlocks!
After your walk, if you want to see more, the house tours are fascinating and Billings Farm (across the way) is a wonderful day out.
