Within the forests and deep coves of the Domain, there exists is a little known and highly diverse prehistoric and historic record of human landuse. Field experiences include prehistoric rockshelter and historic house excavation. Past excavations recovered evidence of plants, animal bone fragments and tools from the hunter-gatherers of the Early Archaic as well as early horticulturalists of the Middle Woodland Period (ca. 8,000 to 2,000 years old).
A short walk from central campus you’ll find 13,000 acres of opportunity at your fingertips. You will observe, grow, preserve, measure, manage, burn, and restore in this living laboratory we call the Domain. Your woodland workshop awaits.
