A Healing Landscape: Environmental and Social History of the Site of the Boston Nature Center

The Boston Nature Center, with the help of Mass Humanities, embarked on an extensive history project to tell the diverse and rich story of the land they now steward. The resulting book, A Healing Landscape: Environmental and Social History of the Site of Mass Audubon's Boston Nature Center by historian Steven Pavlos Holmes, Ph.D., tells the stories of the people who have lived and worked on the land over the past two centuries—including early farming families, a Revolutionary war soldier, pioneering birdwatchers, the residents and staff of the Boston State Hospital, and, of course, the Clark Cooper Community Gardens and Mass Audubon.
