Save the Dates: Winter Films with the Harris Center

PISGAH: A PLACE APART in KEENE on 3/7

This hour-long, local documentary film traces the history of New Hampshire’s largest state park – Pisgah, a 13,400-acre wilderness in Chesterfield, Winchester, and Hinsdale. Through historic photos and interviews with forest ecologists and longtime local residents, Pisgah: A Place Apart highlights the land’s logging and farming past, and explains how pockets of old-growth forest, deep in the heart of the park, survived both the saw and the felling winds of the Hurricane of 1938.

Thursday, March 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Putnam Theater at Keene State College. Co-sponsored by the Harris Center, Keene State College, the Monadnock Conservancy, and the Monadnock Institute for Nature, Place and Culture.
