Working the Landscape: Vermont's Fields, Trails & Forests

Vermont landscapes are the outcome of natural processes and human work.

While often imagined as an unchanging and iconic place, Vermont’s landscape is the result of diverse and ongoing activities. This exhibit highlights the people, tools, and practices that have shaped Vermont's fields, forests and recreational spaces. The exhibit also draws attention to the policies that have influenced how people work the land. Woven through the exhibit are the voices of Vermonters who reflect on what they value most about the state’s working landscape.
