Vineyard Conservation Almanac

Native Trees/Native People of Chappaquiddick Monday, July 18, 10 am to noon.

Trees and other plants provided food, shelter, and medicine to the earliest inhabitants of Martha’s Vineyard. Knowledge of these plants and how to use them was necessary to sustain and enhance life. The Wampanoag were experts at utilizing these resources. When the European settlers arrived, learning about the local flora from the native inhabitants was essential for their survival, especially for those who chose to reside in remote locations. Chappaquiddick Island, then and now, is a place apart. Join field guides from education program at the Polly Hill Arboretum (PHA) in this exploration of the woodlands of Chappy to identify native trees and plants and learn how they were used by both Native Americans and early colonists. Meet at the Chappy Community Center. Co-sponsored by the Chappaquiddick Island Association (CIA). $24, or $20 for PHA and CIA members.Visit the Vineyard Conservation Almanac web site for conservation-related calendar listings, weekly wind farm and state updates, and community group links. Look for Almanac print versions posted weekly in local libraries.
