We all enjoy and are part of stories. Understanding the larger biographies of people on the land helps us see where we fit in. Understanding the personal stories of people on the land lets us understand how others have lived and continue to live in our landscape. The power of these stories has influenced our own work and has led us to build more history into our presentations; it has directed our attention towards the collection of oral histories. As always, our work itself is an uncompleted story, but below you’ll find some of our tales, as well as upcoming opportunities to contribute your own stories of land relationships as part of our Living Land Project.
