About us

Education helps develop a community that understands connections among the human health, ecosystems and economies. The Hitchcock Center connects people with nature and encourages a deeper emotional bond with the natural world that sustains us all.

Roots: 50 Years of Growth engages our community to talk around the importance of the Center’s work.
