A History of Centennial Woods

The spot that I chose is now known as Centennial Woods. Indigenous people once occupied the land where it can be assumed they utilized the streams for water and other resources. However upon colonization, things changed. The land was most likely clear cut at one point like most areas in Vermont were, for agriculture, like sheep farming. However in the next century succession began and new and old plant communities began to flourish once again. In the 1970’s the University of Vermont bought the land and declared it as a natural area, open to the public.
