Join local historian and writer, Tim Castner, for a walk— through time — down Prospect Hill to the shore of Glacial Lake Nashua. Learn how landscape clues can be combined with traditional documents to enrich our stories about the past. Tim’s experience as a history educator and his work with the Lancaster Town Forest Committee, Flats Mentor Farm, and Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area, gives him a unique perspective on the environmental history of the area. In this workshop, he will look at  the geologic history of the area with reference to the  indigenous, colonial, and early national history of Harvard and its environs. Participants will explore the varied landscapes of the Fruitlands property while participating in a series of brief writing exercises designed to stimulate thinking about both history and writing.

This program is presented in collaboration with Seven Bridge Writers' Collaborative

Tim Castner has worked as a history teacher for the past twenty years at Nashoba Regional High School. His publications include chapters on The Great Awakening and The Constitutional Convention in Conflicts in American History: A Documentary Encyclopedia, 8-Volume Set, and a recent collaboration with Paul D. Hanson for his book, A Political History of the Bible in America.

Rain Date: Saturday, June 8th, 2019, In the event of inclement weather, this program will be moved to the rain date. Any schedule changes will be communicated to registered participants via email.
