Heritage, Habitat & Health: Gettysburg
Summer Speaker Series
History is made every day.
We have all become a big part of history over the past year.
As we continue to move forward, and look back on where we have been, and what we have done, we can't help but examine procedures and advancements that have origins rooted in the American Civil War.
Nature, which is sometimes overlooked, played a factor in the Battle of Gettysburg, and throughout the Civil War.
Similarly, during the pandemic, it became an intricate part of our health and wellbeing.
There are a lot of interwoven pieces between
Heritage, Habitat & Health,
and we will explore these topics during our
summer speaker series.
