In Bellows Falls: The Abenaki and Nature

  • Rockingham Free Central Library 65 Westminster Street Bellows Falls, VT, 05101 United States (map)

Thousands of years ago, Abenaki people relied on nature to survive, making clothing and building shelters from natural materials.  Their food came from hunting, gathering, and fishing so knowing all about the natural world was very important.  Come listen to Native American stories, play traditional games, make a craft and imagine daily life before roads, stores, and electricity.  

“The Abenaki and Nature” is a part of a series of special summer programming that we are offering on Fridays at the Rockingham Library in Bellows Falls. These programs were previously to be held at the Bellows Falls Visitor Center but the center has had to temporarily close.. These free drop-in sessions are led by Jay DeGregorio, one of our Environmental Educators. This program is made possible with the generous support of Great River Hydro, owners of the hydroelectric plant in Bellows Falls on the Connecticut River.
