Naturalist Perspectives Challenge: The History of a Place

This week’s challenge is to uncover the history of your Site Gamma. What was this place you’ve visited like in the past? Farmland? A dump? An abandoned lot? A railroad track? What was it before that? Try consulting town records or asking local residents for information and see if you can find out any of the following:

  • If the area’s land use has changed, why and how has it changed?
  • What was it “originally” and what does that even mean to you?
  • What kind of species inhabited Site Gamma back then?
  • Drawing upon what you’ve found out, what do you think the future of Site Gamma looks like?
