Sense of Place Lecture Series
Sense of Place is an annual lecture series that seeks to foster deeper understanding of and connection to our landscape and to one another. The lecture series began in 2010 as a means to build a dialogue among community members about some of the issues and historical events that both connect and divide us. It has since grown into an annual series running from fall to spring.
