Join us Thursday, July 18th at 12 Noon at Linden, for our Brown Bag Lunch with Greg Bowen, Executive Director of the American Chestnut Land Trust. Free for all! Bring your Lunch, Bring your Questions and Bring Your Friends!

Mr. Bowen will let attendees know about its exciting newest project.  For more than 10,000 years, people have hunted, fished, worked and made their homes around what would come to be known as Parkers Creek in Calvert County. Just as their lives and cultures shaped our local heritage, the ruggedness of the terrain and the characteristics of the waterways shaped their lives.

The American Chestnut Land Trust is beginning to fully explore the relationship between the Parkers Creek environment and its people within 5 significant eras of human habitation: Life before European contact, European settlement, rural intensification and slavery, small scale agricultural economy, and finally, reduction in agriculture residential development and return to forest. The results will then be shared through comprehensive interpretation for the public along ACLT’s  24 miles of trails and heritage sites and also, we hope, with a grant to restore Brown’s United Methodist Church on Parkers Creek Road.  Mr. Bowen will provide a preview of the project.
