Discover Montgomery Place
The Hudson's "Great Estates" are not just pretty houses with fancy landscaping. They are integral pieces of regional history providing insight into what life was like for a certain class of people, what they valued, and how things were done. Historic landscapes also function as parks and benefit the ecosystem by protecting flora, fauna, and watersheds. Student Conservation Associate Julia Brophy has created a booklet to help you think as you explore. Use your printer's booklet setting for best results. Download. (photo: Bethlehem MS)
FARMS & FOOD: A Teaching the Hudson Valley Resource Guide
The topic "farms and food" lends itself so readily to place-based teaching.

Inextricably linked to Hudson Valley culture, history, and development, while also embracing economics, science, and the environment, the topic is ideal for interdisciplinary learning.
