For the past 11,000 years, humans have been living in the area now known as Vermont.
But long before that, glaciers covered the land and when those receded, the Champlain
Sea filled in. The sea
created a vibrant habitat that allowed species like seals and whales to
thrive. And, then the human population began to grow. We dig into
the bedrock and biology of prehistoric Vermont,
to learn what transformed the region from this vast sea into mountains of
granite, and to explore how life developed on the heels of the Ice Age.
Also, we talk with Burlington Free Press reporter Candace Page about how communities on the New York side of Lake Champlain are embracing large scale wind projects.
And, before apple season ends, we follow a Vermont cider maker for a day.
