    Landscape has changed dramatically over the last 500 years—from forest, to field, to thicket, and back to forest. As the land has changed so has our wildlife. Learn how our current land use and gardening practices impact our wild areas.

    Sponsored by the Berlin Land Trust.

    About the Presenter

    Presented by Margery Winters, Naturalist from Simsbury Land Trust and Roaring Brook Nature Center.

    Margery and her family moved from Chicago to Simsbury in 1986 and she brought with her training in geology, hydrology, and soils and prior work in environmental impact assessment at Argonne National Laboratory. In Simsbury, Margery raised her children and became active in a variety of organizations including the Simsbury Garden Club and the founding of the Simsbury Educational Enhancement Foundation. Margery worked for many years on water management issues with Rivers Alliance of Connecticut and has served on the Simsbury Inland Wetlands Commission since 2000. She has found her ideal job as Assistant Director of Roaring Brook Nature Center where she is delighted to be able to share her passion for science and nature with students of all ages. Margery believes the Simsbury Land Trust has a vital role in bringing a better appreciation of the importance of our natural areas to the entire community. She currently serves as vice-president of the SLT Board of Trustees.
