Landscape of Change logo in full color

Join Raney Bench, Executive Director of the Mount Desert Island Historical Society, to learn how historical records can shed light on our changing climate.

To understand how climate change affects the landscape, we need to look to the past. Our ancestors documented the natural world around them in stories, reports, journals, diaries, and letters, which are cared for in the collections of history museums and libraries. Increasingly, scientists are pulling observations and data from historic records to get a clearer picture of the natural world of the past to understand how the present is changing.

This program is hosted by Ellsworth Historical Society, Ellsworth Public Library, Mount Desert Island Historical Society, and Green Ellsworth. To learn more, click here.
