William Brewster and the Concord Landscape, with Jayne Gordon

Ornithologist William Brewster, founder of the Massachusetts Audubon Society, used Concord as his field station. His October Farm property on Ball’s Hill between the Concord River and Monument Street was the epicenter for his research. Today, through the efforts of the town’s Division of Natural Resources and the Concord Land Conservation Trust, much of this beautiful area can be explored and enjoyed by all.

Public historian Jayne Gordon will examine Brewster’s observations on the landscape of Concord, his relationships with two people who helped immensely in his work, and his lifetime contribution to the study of birds. Register online, here. Members free. Non-members $10.

"William Brewster and the Concord Landscape" is part of our “People of Concord” Summer Series.
