AroundĀ the world, the word heritage describes things inherited from the past, as well as legacies that will survive for the future. From a UNESCO site in Greenland to parks in Western New York, Dr. Kathryn Grow Allen will be sharing her efforts with different types of heritage. Through projects designed to reveal history, communicate science, and spark change, her work shows how heritage projects can strengthen communities. By sharing them, Katie hopes to engage in a discussion on how similar projects could be mobilized in the North Country.
