A Coastal Writer's Paradise: Exploring Martha's Vineyard's Literary Place on the American Shoreline | Shorewords!
How might Martha's Vineyard chart its path into the future?
It’s summer and like thousands of New Englanders, we’re heading to Martha’s Vineyard. Join host Lesley Ewing in conversation with Professor David Foster, biologist, board member of the Edey Foundation and Trustees of Reservations on Martha’s Vineyard, and author of The Meeting of Land and Sea: Nature and the Future of Martha’s Vineyard. On this episode of Shorewords, we’ll look landward to explore the history of this iconic vacation spot, the changing land use practices that have underpinned this island community for centuries and how our understanding of landscape history and related science can be best used to conserve and prepare an area for the future.
