WELLFLEET –The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary presents “Studies in the Environmental History of New England”, which runs on Thursdays from January 5 to April 6.

From the granite-bound coastline of Maine to the Taconic and Berkshire ranges that dominate the eastern half of the Hudson Valley, New England encompasses a variety of unique habitats and wildlife.

This section of the country, where early colonial settlement and revolutionary discontent began to shape the identity of the nation, has enjoyed a rich cultural history due in large part to the environment that New Englanders have encountered and modified from the 17th century to present day.

“Studies in the Environmental History of New England” is a discussion-based program designed to introduce participants to central themes in environmental history while focusing on the New England region.

During the course of this multi-month program, participants will have a chance to read and discuss critical works that explore subjects such as the development of New England as an industrial society and how nature has been perceived as both a physical and abstract force.

Group discussions concentrating on bi-weekly readings will take place at the Long Pasture Visitors Center and all are encouraged to participate.

Participants will be expected to independently obtain copies of the books on the reading list.
