GREENSBORO – The popular “land conservation” exhibit sponsored by the Greensboro Land Trust and Greensboro Historical Society (GHS) will re-open with a reception on Sunday, July 2, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the museum next to Willey’s Store. Everyone is invited to visit the exhibit, which features 21 panels of photos and information about local conserved properties. This year it will also showcase products that represent the working lands among the conserved properties: timber, milk, cheese, grain for local bakers, hay, maple syrup, organic herbs and vegetables.

The exhibit this year will also have additions relating to the many values of conservation, among them the amelioration of climate change (carbon storage, wetland habitats, etc.), public recreation, animal corridors, greenspaces in town and working lands that continue to produce local food and wood for the timber industry. A new monitor in the exhibit space will show the 2022 presentation at the GHS annual meeting: “History of Land Conservation in Vermont.”

Refreshments will be served at the opening. The museum will be open throughout July and August on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; Fridays from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon, and July 16 through August 12 on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
