Belmont Historical Society presents ‘The Belmont Uplands: A History of Changing Use of Land and Water’

 The Belmont Historical Society presents an illustrated history by Anne-Marie Lambert; “The Belmont Uplands: A History of the Changing Use of Land and Water,” on Sunday, Oct. 6 from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Belmont Public Library’s Assembly Room.

The Belmont Uplands’ transition from marsh island, to farm, to forest tells a local story of changing boundaries between nature and man, and between land and water.  As demands for both human and wildlife habitat rise, and as climate change threatens, the story is not over.

Anne-Marie Lambert is on the board of the Belmont Citizens Forum, and is co-founder of the Belmont Stormwater Working Group. Lambert is a recipient of the Belmont Historical Society’s 2014 David K. Johnson Preservation Award for her ongoing work in educating the Belmont community and promoting planning and policies for preservation and environmental quality.

The talk is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.  Please contact the Belmont Historical Society for more information at 617-993-2878.
