Hardy is the author of Notes on a Lost Flute: A Field Guide to the Wabanaki.  Hardy’s topic will be the old Indian highways and roads of the early days in Knox County. Hardy brings together his expertise in forestry, horticulture, and environmental science to tell us about New England when its primary inhabitants were the native Wabanaki tribes.

In addition to his work on Indians of this region, Hardy is part of a local group which has been studying early paths and roads of this area, and their relation to settlement and subsequent land use patterns. Come hear his discussion of those roads and how they relate to the present day.Hardy’s book and lectures are presented in an entertaining and accessible style, making them of interest and useful to adults and students alike.
