(via Peter Anick)

Thanks to all who came to hear Doug Harris speak about indigenous ceremonial stone landscapes of New England during his recent Massachusetts tour. We at the Narragansett Indian Tribal Historic Preservation Trust (NITHPT) are excited to connect with anyone interested in learning to recognize, appreciate, and protect ceremonial stone landscapes. 

To that end, starting in June and continuing through October of this year, we will be leading monthly field trips in Upton to show people the Upton Chamber and companion features on top of Pratt Hill in Upton. The trips will be on the second Saturday of each month. The next field trip is slated for July 14th

Although there is no charge for the field trip, NITHPT is a not-for-profit 501C(3), and charitable donations are welcome to support our mission to protect and preserve ceremonial stone landscapes.
