An Herbal History of the Adirondacks

April 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Free

Herbal History of the Adirondacks looks at how Native and Americans and early settlers utilized native plants as medicinal and culinary preparations.  Nancy Scarzello, our presenter, will reflect on how this has led to a contemporary  herbal culture that continues to thrive today.

For those attending this presentation they will also have an opportunity to take an early  “sneak preview” after the talk of the new exhibit that is being installed in our 2nd floor Exhibit Hall at the Hancock House.

Here is an opportunity to learn about the fascinating and amazing natural resources we have available right in our own backyards.  Nancy will provide an insight of how natives and early settlers exchanged information and knowledge of herbs, and how modern practitioners continue to advance that historical awareness.

Nancy, with co-designer of the exhibit, Diane O’Connor have interesting and information exhibit that is a must see.  Nancy has more than 35 years of experience studying and teaching about herbs, native plants, natural healing and plant medicines.  She is a regular presenter at the New England Women’s Herbal Conference and is a frequent speaker across the Adirondacks and New England region.

This is a free program, and is the second major new exhibit  for the Ticonderoga Historical Society’s 2016 scheduled exhibits.
